Edward Gorey (1925–2000), much like an eccentric scientist in a gothic legend, brought to life from the laboratory of his mind altogether new and sometimes playfully sinister creations. Amazing and wonderful in their sardonic merriment, his drawings and stories have a special genius that resides in the effect of what is left unseen and unwritten. Following the literary tradition of the nonsense verse and somewhat surreal narratives of Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear, Gorey’s illustrated texts often guide the reader to the point just before the crescendo of events and then let the imagination draw the ominous or hilarious conclusions.
