Originally published as two separate volumes in 1969, Jim Morrison's first published volume of poetry gives a revealing glimpse of an era and the man whose songs and savage performances have left an indelible impression on our culture.

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.

These two epic poems illustrate the thin line between Morrison's song lyric and poetry texts -- his was the voice of a generation that was rebelling against military authority in the world. In Jim's case, it was literal, with his father serving as the top U.S. Naval Commander during Vietnam's Gulf of Tonkin Incident, setting off the "Vietnam War."
