Robert W. Chambers’ The King in Yellow, a collection of short stories, is considered one of the most important works of American supernatural fiction. Within the collection is “The Prophet’s Paradise,” a dream-like narrative of prose and poetry. Featuring personifications of Love and Truth, the story’s structure has a palindrome-like quality with internal repetition. Romantic in tone and ambiguous in theme, “The Prophet’s Paradise” is one of Chambers’more experimental pieces. Originally published in 1895.
