The early work of poet, singer, legend - Jim Morrison Intense, erotic, and enigmatic, Jim Morrison's persona is as riveting now as the lead singer/composer "Lizard King" was during The Doors' peak in the late sixties. His fast life and mysterious death remain controversial more than twenty years later. "The Lords and the New Creatures," Morrison's first published volume of poetry, is an uninhibited exploration of society's dark side - drugs, sex, fame, and death - captured in sensual, seething images. Here Morrison gives a revealing glimpse at an era and at the man whose songs and savage performances have left their indelible impression on our culture. Jim Morrison was the lead singer, composer, and lyricist for The Doors until his death in 1971. Several books of his poems were published posthumously.
