About the Author

Aldous Leonard Huxley (born July 26 1894 - died November 22, 1963) was born into a family of prominent English intellectuals. He began writing in England, but later made his home in Hollywood, and the Loz Feliz area of Los Angeles. He is best known for his novels, including Brave New World (1932), and Island (1962). But he also produced a wide range of essays, short stories, film scripts and poetry. Aldous Huxley was a leading humanist and pacifist throughout his life. He was also deeply interested in spiritual matters and mysticism. He was an intrepid intellectual leader and pioneer. He published Doors of Perception (1954), and Heaven and Hell (1956), advocating the intelligent and controlled use of psychedelics for philosophical and religious exploration.

Huxley is not as good a poet as he was a writer of novels, but some of these poems are quite beautiful.
