Containing a partial screenplay and copious amounts of lusty and trippy poetry, The American Night represents for me the true poet beneath the famous—often infamous—front man, Jim Morrison. Revealing even more about death and society than some of his original lyrics, these pieces form a liberating, yet provocative and stimulating, style unique to Morrison. A perfect supplement to the music of The Doors, Morrison's poetic distinction is stirred by the smooth sounds and distinct vocabulary of his verse, which have greatly enhanced my perspective on poetry. Delicately balancing the abstract and concrete, he reveals, not only the thin line between reality and hallucination but also, his own poetic prowess.
