Pariski dnevnik Džima Morisona

Jim Morrison

Jim Morrison

Džim Morison, pevač i tekstopisac grupe The Doors, pesnik, filmofil, vizionar, poklonik poezije Vilijama Blejka, kralj guštera i Dionisov sledbenik moderni je primer kako drevni mitski postulati ponavljaju svoje obrasce i kako satirska neobuzdanost i iracionalni zanosi Menada mogu istoveremeno za učesnika u njihovim svetkovinama biti i pročišćenje i stradanje. Samostvaranje i samouništenje ponovili su svoju međusobnu uslovljenost na primeru američkog pesnika, Dionisa 20. veka, koji ih je, čini se, poimao kao neophodne.

Morison je poslednje mesece svog života proveo u Parizu gde je intezivno pisao poeziju. Sveska koja je nedavno, negde na zapadnoj obali Amerike pronađena, nalik krugu koji se zatvara, pripadala je Morisonovoj zaostavštini formiranoj u Parizu gde je pesnik zapisao jednu pesmu iz koje su u nastavku predstavljena tri odlomka. Sveska je po pesnikovoj smrti pripala Morisonovoj devojci Pameli Kurson, a po njenoj smrti izgubio joj se svaki trag. Najzad, ipak, nedavno je pronađena, prikazana u javnosti i deo je privatne kolekcije.

U nastavku slede tri odlomka koja su se nalazila u nedavno pronađenom pariskom dnevniku i oni mogu biti pojedinačni primeri koji svojim motivima sadarže uobičajene odlike Morisonovog stvaralaštva. Vizije, slika pustinje, obraćanje drugome, izraz težnje ka povratku Vrtu (Garden), zajedništvo u ljubavi dinamičnoj nalik kosmičkim kretanjima koje je moguće čuti u pustinji pod noćnim nebom. Poetske slike iz naredna dva odlomka bile su prisutne i u ranijoj Morisonovoj poeziji, a koja se, u prevodu na srpski jezik, može pronaći u izdanjima Divljina (prevele Aleksandra Anđelković i Aleksandra Vučković) i Poeme(prevela Zorica Đergović).

There’s palace
in the canyon
where you and I
were born
Now I’m a lonely Man
Let me back into
the Garden
Blue Shadows
of the Canyon
I met you
& now you’re gone
& now my dream is gone
Let me back into the Garden
A man searching
for lost Paradise
can seem a fool
to those who never
sought the other world

*

A monster arrived
in the mirror
To mock the room
& its fool
alone
Give me songs
to sing
& emerald dreams
to dream
& I’ll give you love
unfolding

*

Tell them you came & saw
& look’d into my eyes
& saw the shadow
of the guard receding
Thoughts in time
& out of season
The Hitchhiker stood
by the side of the road
& levelled his thumb
in the calm calculus
of reason.

„Paris Journal is published in full in The American Night: The Writings of Jim Morrison Volume II (Vintage Books, 1990.)   The American Nightnotes „The entire notebook consists of one angry, reflective and defiant poem.  As there are only three places in the notebook where words or phrases appear to be crossed out, this appears to be a clean and finished draft.  (Morrison) wrote the title „Paris Journal“ on the front of the notebook’s black cover…These are among the last lines he wrote.“

Paris Journal was part of the legendary 127 Fascination box,  the archive of Jim Morrison manuscripts saved after Morrison’s death by his common-law wife, Pamela Courson.  After Courson’s death in 1974, the manuscripts went missing, and were rediscovered 1986 in Northern California, in a strongbox labeled „127 Fascination“.  Courson had given them to a paramour in the Bay Area for safe keeping; and while he’d returned some of her possessions to her family, he’d kept the 127 Fascination manuscripts.

When the manuscripts resurfaced, attempts were made to publish them, but the Morrison and Courson families objected and a legal settlement was eventually hammered out.  After the settlement, Paris Journal was sold, and has been in a private collection until now.“ *
