Description
Saint Melissa, as depicted in this diminutive tome from the ever-expanding posthumous catalog of Edward Gorey, was canonized not for her performance of healing miracles and martyrdom, but despite—or because of—her Miracles of Destruction, a series of rough-and-tumble hijinks and dabbles in the supernatural. Instead of the talents that proper young ladies studied, the misbegotten orphan of Victorian England was adept at the bringing on of migraines, the refinement of lust, and the involutions of penmanship and calligrams. And as her erstwhile biographer Gorey tells us, "letters she wrote are still to be delivered, traps she set are still to be sprung, pronouncements she devised are still to be promulgated, objects she hid are still to be found."
