Edward Gorey's Books of Eerie Glory

By Joan Acocella. I always pick up Henry James and I think, Oooh! This is won derful! And then I will hear a little sound. And the whole thing is going down the drain like the bathwater. Many Gorey books are little more than thirty pages long: a series of illustrations, one per page, accompanied, at the lower margin or on the facing page, by maybe two or three lines of text, sometimes verse, sometimes prose.

Eliot , a documented cat-lover , who penned these whimsical verses about feline psychology and social order in a series of letters to his godchildren in the s. Some time ago, I had the good fortune of tracking down an original edition of this tiny treasure, signed by Gorey himself — please enjoy:. There are fancier names if you think they sound sweeter, Some for the gentlemen, some for the dames: Such as Plato, Admetus, Electra, Demeter — But all of them sensible everyday names. Of names of this kind, I can give you a quorum, Such as Munkustrap, Quaxo, or Coricopat, Such as Bombalurina, or else Jellylorum — Names that never belong to more than one cat. When you notice a cat in profound meditation, The reason, I tell you, is always the same: His mind is engaged in a rapt contemplation Of the thought, of the thought, of the thought of his name: His ineffable effable Effanineffable Deep and inscrutable singular Name. Jellicle Cats are black and white, Jellicle Cats are rather small; Jellicle Cats are merry and bright, And pleasant to hear when they caterwaul. Jellicle Cats have cheerful faces, Jellicle Cats have bright black eyes; They like to practise their airs and graces And wait for the Jellicle Moon to rise.

The Gashlycrumb Tinies By Edward Gorey

Edward Gorey was an American illustrator and writer, chiefly remembered for his illustrated books. Once you've seen a bit of Gorey's work, it becomes instantly recognizable. His books are full of rich, strange characters. Pipe-thin men and women in fancy dress, cats in clothing, fantastical, mythical creatures including one that looks like a cheerful leech with butterfly wings , treacherous villains and much, much more. One of his earliest and strangest creatures was The Doubtful Guest , a moody and stubborn creature that resembled a furry penguin in high-top sneakers and a striped scarf.
