Poet/Lyricist: The Aesthetics of Verse

POET/LYRICIST
THE AESTHETICS OF VERSE

Through verse and lyrics, L. Ron Hubbard communicates his personal view of the world as no other art form can. His works span the entirety of his life: his youth, the New York years—not to mention his greater journey to the ultimate heights of spiritual fulfillment.

My own verse is usually free verse. The freer the better.

—L. Ron Hubbard
