The Doubtful Guest book. Edward Gorey, The Doubtful Guest

The Doubtful Guest book. The doubtful guest shows up unannounced and unwelcome, yet its. Edward Gorey, The Doubtful Guest. A dark penguin (?) with white converse shoes, a wool scarf, and an affinity for bowls, plates, and urns shows up and inserts him/her/itself into a gothic Victorian family's estate. I think this book was created on a boozy bet. Gorey bet some absurd friend he could write a small poem of illustrated couplets and use the words: 1. Urn 2. Gramophone 3. Flues 4. Hooks 5. "Then they saw something standing on top of an urn, Whose peculiar appearance gave them quite a turn.

This is a charming story of a questionable character who appears out of nowhere and endears "it"self by simply being itself: odd, personable, quirky, and tenacious. The pen and ink drawings by Edward Gorey are impeccable (his formal training at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago lasted only one year), showing a natural gift for precision and imagination; they are used exclusively as signatures of the PBS series "Mystery." The Victorian/Edwardian theme creates another world, placing the reader in the late 19th, early 20th century of elegance and propriety, making the mysterious appearance of this peculiar "Doubtful Guest" even more peculiar. The fact that Mr. Gorey created these drawings and the story they tell in 1957 is testimony to its timeless, endearing, enduring quality.

This story in poem form amuses me greatly, as I have an odd tenant in my house who has been with me for 14 years and has behaviors that remind me of the creature in the tale. I showed it to him and he laughed uproariously. The writing is quite clever, smacks of truth, and rhymes nicely.

This is my single favorite Edward Gorey book, partially because of the amusing couplets it is written in, but mostly because of the appearance of the guest himself, which never ceases to amuse me. The concept of a strange creature who mysteriously visits and decides to stay (seventeen years) while exercising odd whims (like fits in which he removes all towels from the bath or hiding inside a soup tureen) is particularly suited to Gorey's odd brand of humor (although it is not one of his more unusual books, by any stretch of the imagination.)

I have liked Edward Gorey since I was in my teens, and still find him as unique and entertaining as ever. This is my very favorite Gorey book, and would make an excellent introduction to one of the oddest cartoonists of the twentieth century.

Given as a gift, it was a big hit with the one who got it. I'd say that is a very excellent thing. And the illustrations, also by Edward Gorey, have their own wonderful charm and fun.

Classic 1950s Edward Gorey. I've given this book to many people as a gift. I work with people with IDDs and the book can easily be viewed as a commentary on these individuals, although I read that Mr. Gorey's intention may have been a commentary on immigrants. In any case an amazingly fun wandering.

My daughter has had Edward Gorey books as her first books and I love them all.
A little sick humor.....I like the drawings......not for everyone.
