Balaclava by Edward Gorey is a whimsical collection of sixty limericks accompanied by Gorey’s signature macabre and humorous illustrations. Each limerick presents a quirky and often darkly humorous scenario, featuring characters and situations that are both eccentric and surreal. Gorey’s playful use of language and his distinctive black-and-white illustrations combine to create a delightfully offbeat and entertaining reading experience. “Balaclava” showcases Gorey’s unique wit and artistic style, making it a charming addition to the collection of any fan of his work or of humorous poetry.
