Read full description of the books:



Obra-prima de Robert W. Chambers, O Rei de Amarelo é uma coletânea de contos de terror fantástico publicada originalmente em 1895 e considerada um marco do gênero. Influenciou diversas gerações de escritores, de H. P. Lovecraft a Neil Gaiman, Stephen King e, mais recentemente, o escritor, produtor e roteirista Nic Pizzolatto, criador da série investigativa True Detective, exibida pela HBO, cujo mistério central faz referência ao obscuro Rei de Amarelo.

O título da coletânea faz alusão a um livro dentro do livro — mais precisamente, a uma peça teatral fictícia — e a seu personagem central, uma figura sobrenatural cuja existência extrapola as páginas. A peça “O Rei de Amarelo” é mencionada em quatro dos contos, mas pouco se conhece de seu conteúdo. É certo apenas que o texto, em dois atos, leva o leitor à loucura, condenando sua alma à perdição. Um risco a que alguns aceitam se submeter, dado o caráter único da obra, um misto irresistível de beleza e decadência.

A edição de O Rei de Amarelo trazida ao Brasil pela Intrínseca reúne, além dos contos do Rei, seis outros que alternam entre o sobrenatural e a realidade, em épocas e geografias diferentes. A introdução e as notas do jornalista e escritor Carlos Orsi, um dos autores publicados na antologia americana Rehearsals of Oblivion, clássico tributo a Robert W. Chambers, ajudarão novos leitores a mergulhar na bem construída mitologia do autor.

Read information about the author

Ebook O Rei de Amarelo read Online! Robert William Chambers was an American artist and writer.

Chambers was first educated at the Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute,and then entered the Art Students' League at around the age of twenty, where the artist Charles Dana Gibson was his fellow student. Chambers studied at the École des Beaux-Arts, and at Académie Julian, in Paris from 1886 to 1893, and his work was displayed at the Salon as early as 1889. On his return to New York, he succeeded in selling his illustrations to Life, Truth, and Vogue magazines. Then, for reasons unclear, he devoted his time to writing, producing his first novel, In the Quarter (written in 1887 in Munich). His most famous, and perhaps most meritorious, effort is The King in Yellow, a collection of weird short stories, connected by the theme of the fictitious drama The King in Yellow, which drives those who read it insane.

Chambers returned to the weird genre in his later short story collections The Maker of Moons and The Tree of Heaven, but neither earned him such success as The King in Yellow.

Chambers later turned to writing romantic fiction to earn a living. According to some estimates, Chambers was one of the most successful literary careers of his period, his later novels selling well and a handful achieving best-seller status. Many of his works were also serialized in magazines.

After 1924 he devoted himself solely to writing historical fiction.

Chambers for several years made Broadalbin his summer home. Some of his novels touch upon colonial life in Broadalbin and Johnstown.

On July 12, 1898, he married Elsa Vaughn Moller (1882-1939). They had a son, Robert Edward Stuart Chambers (later calling himself Robert Husted Chambers) who also gained some fame as an author.

Chambers died at his home in the village of Broadalbin, New York, on December 16th 1933.
