Biography Edward Gorey
The following biography has excerpts from the obituary of the artist published in the The New York Times, 10/16/2000:
By MEL GUSSOW
After Edward Gorey died in April, Andreas Brown, one of the executors of his estate, visited Gorey's 200-year-old 15-room house in Yarmouth Port, Mass. Mr. Brown began searching through closets, crannies in Gorey's words, "beneath the floor, behind the door" and possibly up the chimney. Amid the cosmic disarray, he discovered hundreds of stories and sketches, some finished, some unfinished, left behind by this grand master of the macabre.
This is, Mr. Brown said, a trove of Goreyiana, with ample material for many future books and for plays based on his work.
