Jim Morrison

Jim Morrison (1943-1971) was an American poet better known as the lead singer and one of the songwriters for the rock group The Doors. While his poetry did not garner as much interest or fame as his music, Morrison took great care in his poetic efforts, which were often incorporated into his musical performances and adopted as lyrics in his songs. The French Literature scholar Wallace Fowlie writes in his book Rimbaud and Jim Morrison: The Rebel as Poet, “Several times in the last two years of his life, Jim Morrison said to close friends that he hoped to be remembered as a poet rather than as a rock singer.”
