3. They sure were.

When I was a little kid in the 40s, some of the Grimmís Tales were still pretty raw. I wonder if some of the originals can be read online. Itís morning, so I think I could read them without freaking out. Maybe.

In the article I posted, the link pertaining to Edward Gorey took me to his book The Gashley Tinies http://www.amazon.com/Gashlycrumb-Tinies-Edward-Gorey/dp/0151003084 . He lived nowadays, dying in 2011 or thereabouts. I think the book was a satirical poke at some of the awful childrenís stories of yesteryear. If it wasnít, his last name (it was his real last name) certainly fit him!
