    The Doors of Perception and Heaven and Hell is the story of author Aldous Huxley's experiences while tripping on Mescaline. Huxley takes his title from poet William Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, a poem in imitation of Biblical verse. Huxley discusses freely the psychedelic visions he experienced while high, interpreting them in various ways through exploratory essays and investigative writing. The book was immensely influential in the drug culture of the 1960s and 70s.
