  • "En chantant du rock, Morrison voulait délivrer les gens d'eux-mêmes. Faire reculer les frontières. On ne répétera jamais assez combien chez lui les images, les sons et les mots avaient partie liée. [...] Il était venu chercher le calme à Paris où il arriva en mars 1971. Il y écrira quelques poèmes, recueillis dans La Nuit américaine, et y mourra mystérieusement le 3 juillet 1971." Michel Bulteau Jim Morrison n'était pas uniquement le chanteur du groupe légendaire des Doors. Grand lecteur de romans et de poésie, il tournait aussi des films expérimentaux. Ce volume rend compte des différentes facettes de sa personnalité, des réflexions et expérimentations qui ont jalonné son oeuvre. Il contient à la fois des scénarios de cinéma et le Journal parisien, lui-même constitué de notes, de poèmes, de maximes.

  • "La vraie poésie ne dit rien. Elle ne fait rien que proposer des opportunités et ouvrir toutes les portes. Vous pouvez choisir celle qui vous convient et la franchir. Ce qui me plaît tant dans la poésie, c'est son immortalité. Tant qu'il y aura des hommes sur terre, ils pourront mémoriser des mots et une combinaison de mots. Rien d'autre que la poésie ou la chanson ne pourrait perdurer après un holocauste, personne ne peut décrire un film, une sculpture, une peinture, mais tant que l'homme existera, la poésie et la chanson pourront durer. Si ma poésie a un but, c'est celui de délivrer les hommes des limites par lesquelles ils voient et ressentent." Jim Morrison "Une lumière dionysiaque l'habitait, lui dont le rock fit la gloire et laisserait dans l'ombre sa poésie coupante, lucide, réfléchie comme la vie se réfléchit même dans l'acier d'une lame." Claude Michel Cluny

  • Created in collaboration with the estate of Jim Morrison and inspired by a posthumously discovered list written by Morrison entitled "Plan for Book," The Collected Works of Jim Morrison is a landmark publication featuring both published and unpublished poems, prose, and lyrics and more than 200 personal color and black-and-white photographs, drawings, journal excerpts, notes and lyrics in his own hand; plus a bound-in 16-page facsimile pamphlet of one of Morrison''s self-published poems and a transcript of a poetry reading recorded on what would be his final birthday. "Morrison wrote that ''we had a great visitation of energy,'' proclaimed that ''the ancient ones'' time has come again,'' urged readers to ''enter again the sweet forest/enter the hot dream.'' While he deliberately drove down toad-squirmy backroads of primal terror, ecstasy was often naked in the shotgun seat, spinning jeweled pinwheels, peeling a peach."--Tom Robbins, from his foreword, "Fireflies of the Apocalypse" Jim Morrison was thrust into what he considered accidental stardom in the 1960s as the lead vocalist of The Doors. Fifty years after his passing his legend endures, inspiring legions of fans and musicians. But this electrifying performer who lit the world on fire considered himself foremost a writer, a talent brilliantly demonstrated in his vast output of poetry and song lyrics.
