Let (A,M) be a noetherian local ring. For certain equimultiple ideals I in A we try to relate the Gorenstein property of the Rees algebra⊕n and of A itself. In particular we n≥0 treat the case of equimultiple prime ideals of height two and the case I=M. The results underscore a natural conjecture, s. Thm. 2.6. and 3.2.
