Irish writer Bram Stoker published the Gothic horror classic Dracula in 1897, which became the basis for an entire genre of literature and films about vampires.
Bram Stoker, byname of Abraham Stoker: Nov. 8, 1847, Clontarf, Ireland—April 20, 1912, London, England. Stoker wrote several sensational novels including - The Snake's Pass (1890), The Jewel of Seven Stars (1903), and The Lair of the White Worm (1911)—but none of them approached the popularity or, indeed, the quality of Dracula.
The novel is written chiefly in the form of diaries and journals kept by the principal characters: Jonathan Harker, who made the first contact with the vampire Count Dracula; Wilhelmina (“Mina”) Harker, Jonathan’s eventual wife; Dr. John (“Jack”) Seward, a psychiatrist and sanatorium administrator; and Lucy Westenra, Mina’s friend and a victim of Dracula who herself becomes a vampire.
