EL SIGNO AMARILLO (Robert W. Chambers) ⚱️ Ficción Sonora - Audiolibro

Play
Read more
Robert Chambers era hiijo de un abogado, nieto de un médico y descendiente directo del fundador de Rhode Island. En 1894 publicó su primer libro, In the Quarter, un muestrario de escenas de la vida bohemia a la manera de Murger o Du Maurier basadas en las notas que tomó en París. Se supone que nadie esperaba que se dedicase a escribir, ni siquiera él mismo, aunque según sus amigos tenía una facilidad natural para contar historias.

Sea como fuere, en 1895 publicó su segundo libro, The King in Yellow ("El Rey de Amarillo"), en el que combinaba nuevos retratos parisienses con originales historias de fantasía y terror que tuvieron un enorme éxito. Ahí empezó su carrera literaria y su continua y pasmosa variación de temas y estilos. En The Maker of Moons (1896) y The Mystery of Choice (1897) siguió aún la estela de "El Rey de Amarillo", pero en The Search of the Unknown (1904) se decantó más bien por la ficción científica.

Después escribió un sinfín de novelas históricas, relatos de detectives y novelas rosa ambientados en la alta sociedad de Nueva York. Todos sus libros se vendieron bien y un par de ellos incluso alcanzaron la condición oficial de best-seller. No necesitaba ese dinero para vivir y lo invirtió en sus muchas y onerosas aficiones: coleccionar mariposas, muebles, porcelana japonesa, alfombras y arte chino. Todo eso parecía importarle mucho más que la reputación literaria.

Agradece a este podcast tantas horas de entretenimiento y disfruta de episodios exclusivos como éste. ¡Apóyale en iVoox! Robert William Chambers (1865-1933) nació en Brooklyn en una familia de terratenientes de origen escocés. Estudió en el New York Art Student’s League y en 1886 se trasladó a París, donde convivió con la bohemia artística del fin de siglo. Cuando Chambers regresa a Nueva York, su vocación de ilustrador cede a su pasión por contar historias y publica un primer libro, «In the Quarter» (1894), sobre sus experiencias en París. Le seguirá un año después una colección de relatos, El Rey de Amarillo, que le convierte en un maestro indiscutible del moderno cuento de terror, capaz de aportar una visión del mal, el horror y lo sobrenatural, alejada por completo del monstruo y el fantasma gótico clásico.
En El Rey de Amarillo. Relatos macabros y terroríficos –título que hace referencia a una obra imaginaria, «El Rey de Amarillo», cuya lectura provoca estupor, locura y tragedia espectral, y de la que el Necronomicón lovecraftiano es deudor– he seleccionado los cinco relatos de corte fantástico de la colección original: La máscara, En el Pasaje del Dragón, El Reparador de Reputaciones, La demoiselle d’Ys y, el más famoso, El Signo Amarillo –obra maestra del cuento macabro de suspense, con un final escalofriante– . Yotra seleccion de relatos no menos interesantes como son: El Creador de Lunas y Una velada placentera, procedentes de «The Maker of Moons» (1896); y El Emperador Púrpura, El Mensajero y La Llave del Dolor, de «The Mystery of Choice» (1897).
En estos relatos, precursores de los Mitos de Chtulhu, se respira una atmósfera eminentemente de pesadilla, alucinatoria y onírica.
El Rey de Amarillo. Relatos macabros y terroríficos, invoca un mundo de caos y perdición, fascinante y repugnante al tiempo, que nos recuerda algunas obras de Meyrink e incluso del propio Kafka.

Today’s story is by Robert W. Chambers, whose most famous collection of short stories, The King in Yellow, influenced many writers of weird fiction in his day, including H.P. Lovecraft.

I’ve taken the liberty of naming today’s story, “Beyond the Broken Glacier”. It comprises chapters 6 to 8 in his book In Search of the Unknown. This book consists of several stories about strange, fabled and unknown creatures encountered by a secretary of the Zoological Gardens in Bronx Park.

We heard the first story in this collection a while ago: “The Harbor Master”, which inspired the film The Creature From the Black Lagoon. The story has some playful humor, and also touches on the lost world genre with I am rather fond of. I hope you enjoy it.

Episode 32: The Yellow Sign by Robert W. Chambers

Play

Robert W. Chambers

Robert William Chambers was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1865 and died in New York in 1933, aged 68.

He was born to a well-off family; his father was a corporate lawyer with his own firm which did very well. 

Robert’s early love was art and of course this is evident in the story, The Yellow Sign. He first studied art in New York and then aged 21 went to Paris to study at the Ecole des Beaux Arts. When he returned to New York, he sold his illustrations to well-known magazines such as Vogue, but in 1887, while he was in Munich, Germany, he completed his first novel and then he began writing weird tales.

At that time, the most prominent art movement was the Art Nouveau with its lines and curls drawn from plants and nature. His best known collection is The King in Yellow, from which this story The Yellow Sign, is drawn.

This idea of a book that sends you mad is found in Lovecraft with his Necromicon but also in a story that I will read out one day, about Michael Scott the Scottish Wizard from the 12th Century whose book was kept in Wolsty Castle’s library suspended on an iron spike for fear of the occult knowledge it contained.

And of course, books have been banned, notably by the Catholic Church with its famous Index, because of the dangerous information they are thought to contain.

Chambers was admired by Lovecraft and perhaps because of that, has not been forgotten like some of his contemporaries.

This story: The Yellow Sign, was one of my favourites. In reviews elsewhere they say that Tessie was a prostitute. She was not a prostitute: she was a nude model, which is not the same thing! Though she would have been looked down on by polite society in New York. Though she loves the painter Mr Scott, they can never marry because of her status, but she can be his mistress. I didn’t find Scott an unsympathetic character.

I am not sure how much the story needed the love interest in fact, and it was when Chambers was exploring that theme that my interest flagged a little.

I thought it was about time I did another American story. I enjoyed doing the accent and I also enjoyed doing the Cockney accent of the bell boy, but the best thing about the story for me was the Yellow Sign.

First of all, we have the horrible watcher, and then the gruesome details from the bell boy that confirm his unnaturalness. There is a great comparison with a soft fat coffin worm, that is quite horrid. 

The occult sign that Tessie finds and gives to Scott seems destined for him and in fact there is a sense on an inexorable destiny that cannot be avoided.

Some evil intelligence has planned all of this — brought the Yellow Sign to Scott and planted the King in Yellow Book in his library.

And then, as the end comes, I think the approach of the King in Yellow — if that is who it is — is done very well. Very sensory and paced like a slow drum beat as the thing comes ever closer.

So, this is a weird tale and a horror story, but I did say that I would be reading weird tales as well as specifically ghost stories.

Let me know what you think!
