As a teenager in the 60s, the music of the Doors slammed into my soul. Morrison's lyrics defined many of my generation as we deciphered and discussed them for countless hours. It has been well documented that Morrison wanted to be known as a poet rather than a singer/lyricist. He seemed to view poetry as the more intellectual pursuit. He is certainly correct in his belief that poetry can bear witness to the ills of society as well as the pain of an individual. Morrison is granted the credibility he craved in Fowlie's carefully researched and richly detailed analysis. The scholarly tone makes this book a welcome addition to the bookshelf of those who believe in the transformative power of poetry and music.
Although you would never guess it, Wallace Fowlie was in his early eighties when writing this book. I believe it to be amazing that a man of Fowlie's caliber, history, and age would find Jim's poetry so compelling that he would work to bring Jim up to the class of poet Jim's idol, Rimbaud, belonged to and head. Maybe now students can feel free to write about James Douglas Morrison in literary classes - using Fowlie's book as a reference - without an English professor arguing that the work is not valid because Jim Morrison was a rock star not a poet.
As you will discover while reading this book, a young rock star named Jim Morrison wrote to a Mr. Wallace Fowlie thanking him for his tranlations of Rimbaud's poetry and letters, and, I do believe, if James Douglas Morrison was alive today he would write to Wallace Fowlie once again to express his sincere thanks.
