An exploration of the artistic and cultural influences that shaped writer and illustrator Edward Gorey The illustrator, designer, and writer Edward Gorey (1925–2000) is beloved for his droll, surreal, and slightly sinister drawings. While he is perhaps best known for his fanciful, macabre books, such as The Doubtful Guest and The Gashlycrumb Tinies, his instantly recognizable imagery can be seen everywhere from the New Yorker to the opening title sequence of the television series Mystery! on PBS. Gorey's Worlds delves into the numerous and surprising cultural and artistic sources that influenced Gorey's unique visual language. Gorey was an inveterate collector--he called it "accumulating." A variety of objects shaped his artistic mindset, from works of popular culture to the more than twenty-six thousand books he owned and the art pieces in his vast collection. This collection, which Gorey left to the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art upon his death, is diverse in style, subject, and media, and includes prints by Eugène Delacroix, Charles Meryon, Edvard Munch, and Odilon Redon; photographs by Eugène Atget; and drawings by Balthus, Pierre Bonnard, Charles Burchfield, Bill Traylor, and Édouard Vuillard. As this book shows, these artistic pieces present a visual riddle, as the connections between them—to each other and to Gorey's works—are significant and enigmatic. The essays in Gorey's Worlds also examine the artist's consuming passions for animals and ballet. Featuring a sumptuous selection of Gorey's creations alongside his fascinating and diverse collections, Gorey's Worlds reveals the private world that inspired one of the most idiosyncratic artists of the twentieth century.

Dark novels, shows, and films targeted toward children and young adults are proliferating wildly. It is even more crucial now to understand the methods by which such texts have traditionally operated and how those methods have been challenged, abandoned, and appropriated. Reading in the Dark fills a gap in criticism devoted to children's popular culture by concentrating on horror, an often-neglected genre. These scholars explore the intersection between horror, popular culture, and children's cultural productions, including picture books, fairy tales, young adult literature, television, and monster movies. Reading in the Dark looks at horror texts for children with deserved respect, weighing the multitude of benefits they can provide for young readers and viewers. Refusing to write off the horror genre as campy, trite, or deforming, these essays instead recognize many of the texts and films categorized as "scary" as among those most widely consumed by children and young adults. In addition, scholars consider how adult horror has been domesticated by children's literature and culture, with authors and screenwriters turning that which was once horrifying into safe, funny, and delightful books and films. Scholars likewise examine the impetus behind such re-envisioning of the adult horror novel or film as something appropriate for the young. The collection investigates both the constructive and the troublesome aspects of scary books, movies, and television shows targeted toward children and young adults. It considers the complex mechanisms by which these texts communicate overt messages and hidden agendas, and it treats as well the readers' experiences of such mechanisms.

Edward Gorey, nacido en Chicago en 1925 y recientemente desaparecido, en abril de 2000, ha sido, sin lugar a dudas, uno de los autores e ilustradores norteamericanos más personales, originales e interesantes de la segunda parte del siglo xx. Paradigma de lo macabro y de lo bizarro, es autor de un centenar de libros ilustrados e ilustrador de otros sesenta. Autodidacta y excéntrico -vivió la mayor parte de su vida completamente solo, rodeado de sus gatos, libros y discos, y cultivando su gran pasión por el ballet-, Edward Gorey comenzó trabajando como director artístico en la editorial neoyorquina Doubleday y dedicando las noches a trabajar con gran empeño en sus propios libros. No obstante, debido al rechazo de los editores, que consideraban escandaloso el chocante y absurdo humor negro de sus obras, hubo de fundar su propia editorial, Fantod Press, y hasta distribuir y vender sus propios libros ilustrados. Su primera y peculiar mininovela, The Unstrung Harp (El arpa no encontrada) apareció en 1953. A ella le seguirían The Listing Attic (El desván del listado, 1954) y The Object Lesson (El ejemplo práctico, 1958). Sin embargo, sus creaciones no alcanzaron al gran público hasta que en 1972 la editorial Putnam publicó la antología que hoy presentamos, Amphigorey, cuyo éxito propició la aparición posterior de otros dos excelentes recopilatorios: Amphigorey Too (1974) y Amphigorey Also (1983), y elevó a su autor a la categoría de ilustrador de culto. Para definir los dibujos y las historias de Gorey podríamos remitir al lector a una tradición de ilustradores irrepetibles entre los que estarían sin duda Odilon Redon, Arthur Rackham, Alfred Kubin, Roland Topor, o, más recientemente, Tim Burton.

Devoted to her troubled clients, clinical psychologist Aimee Gannon never thought she'd be entangled in a murder investigation. But a middle-of-the-night phone call from the Sacramento PD delivers a shock: Aimee's rebellious seventeen-year-old patient Taylor Dawkin could be a suspect in the gruesome murder of her own parents.
