Doped Up or Deep Thinker For my book review I chose to read and write about Jim Morrison the late frontman of The Doors I had always heard how wonderful his poetry and how great a thinker he was and I wanted to find out for myself I have never been a fan of The Doors music but I have an open mind so I decided to tackle the poems of Morrison In reading The American Night there were several things that stood out in my mind One was that many of the poems were ramblings of a stoned depressed man Speaking to several of my friends who are Morrison fans they said it is hard to understand a lot of what he is saying without tripping Nevertheless a couple of poems did stand out for their vivid imagery and story-like quality The original version of Moonlight Drive the performance piece An American Prayer and The Wild Whore Laughs all contain wonderful images and great use of language Concentrating less on form and more on the content Morrisons poetry takes the reader on journeys through the depths of his imagine and the tortures of his soul After reading this book it was very clear that Morrison thought and felt on a different level than the majority of people around him Whether he was demented or a genius depends on the readers point of view In Moonlight Drive Morrison speaks of taking a girl on a moonlight drive and the images he uses takes the reader to the moon different worlds and the ocean Lets swim to the moon Lets climb thru the tide Penetrate the evenin That the city sleeps to hide Lets swim out
