Dong with a Luminous Nose. Edward Lear started his career at the age of 15, drawing ornithological pictures. The Dong with a Luminous Nose is a continuation of Lear's story of The Jumblies, which Gorey illustrated in 1968.

Lear, Edward, 1812-1888; Gorey, Edward, 1925-2000. When his true love with the blue hands and the green hair sailed away, the Dong made himself an artificial nose with a light in it to watch for her. Notes. no page number in the book.

If you know the story of the Jumblies, that happy-go-lucky clan of sailors in a sieve, then you'll be eager to learn more of their saga in this charming love story poem, penned by the master of nonsense verse, Edward Lear (English, 1812-1888), and illustrated by the master of brilliant, offbeat images, Edward Gorey (American, 1925 2000).

As it turns out, the Jumblies made at least one stop during their long journey, and there, on the Hills of the Chankly Bore, a passionate relationship was born--between a Jumbly girl and the Dong. The end of the story is sad but sweet, and it stars a nose that can light up a forest, light up the sky! The Dong is some kind of hero, certainly, and he can't help but win our hearts with that protuberant proboscis of his.

The book is well-made with heavy stock. With the beautiful story and illustrations it is a book to pass down through the years.

A trait found in Gorey's more memorable works is the effortless flow between the story and art; a well-choreographed dance of meter and line. It's found in spades here in both 'The Jumblies' and 'The Dong with a Luminous Nose'. Gorey's inspired interpretation of 'The Dong...' and 'The Jumblies' does something to Lear's originals - it releases the story from words, engaging as they are. Gorey gives us readers the hi-ho-the-merry-o amidst the wind and the waves, the clanking of bottles and tiny cheers of celebration. And even if the Jumblies aren't beings made entirely in our image, they still provide us the most enjoyable of company.

In 'The Dong...', a sequel to 'The Jumblies', sweet pathos is offered alongside humor, and Gorey gives the poor, tortured soul a real stage. Other artists portray the Dong succumbing to a sort of mad foolishness. Gorey finds someone not so mad, but forlorn, more a fool of the heart.

Together, these endearing little characters cast in 'The Jumblies' and 'The Dong with a Luminous Nose' come through with a warmth and fragility that makes these little players appear, oddly, as old, wizened children. They are some of Gorey's most memorable creations. Not surprising really, as Gorey held Lear in very high esteem, and hoped he could do Lear's tales justice.

A wonderfully grim story about a man sequestered by loneliness until he meets his love when she sails to his island with her family. When her visit is over, the Dong can't rest until he finds his love by the light of his luminous nose. Gorey is articulate with his poetry. You will feel this book haunt you hours after reading it.
