About the Author

Pierre Jules Théophile Gautier was a French poet, dramatist, novelist, journalist, art critic and literary critic. While Gautier was an ardent defender of Romanticism, his work is difficult to classify and remains a point of reference for many subsequent literary traditions such as Parnassianism, Symbolism, Decadence and Modernism. He was widely esteemed by writers as diverse as Balzac, Baudelaire, the Goncourt brothers, Flaubert, Proust and Oscar Wilde.

5.0 out of 5 stars The heights of Poetic Beauty. 3 April 2014
By Thomas B. McDonald - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The format was one I wasn't prepared for, but once you actually start reading, if you have any taste for Decadent literature, Romanticism, Aestheticism, or even just beautiful reads, this will command your attention.

It was wonderful. I loved it. I've never seen such dense lyricism in fiction all my life.
5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read for all King in Yellow fans! 24 April 2013
By Bookseller80 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
American author Robert W. Chambers was likely inspired by Gautier's short story "Arria Marcella" when he wrote his horror masterpiece "The King in Yellow" in 1895. "Arria Marcella" is set amid the ruins of Pompeii sometime in the 1850s and is a shockingly modern time travel romance for it's time. (Chambers likely based his story "The Damoiselle D'Ys" on the story found in this book)..
