Description

Bram Stoker agus Dracula looks at the remarkable life of Dublin-born Bram Stoker, and the extent to which his Irish background contributed to the creation of Dracula, one of the most recognisable fictional characters in world literature.

Whilst the vampire figure was, already, a centuries old folklore staple and had even appeared in print - Sheridan LeFanu's gothic fantasy Carmilla (1872), for example - it was the May 1897 publication of Dracula that would introduce the public to the character of Count Dracula and establish many of the tropes of fantasy and horror fiction.

The character would soon transcend the world of genre fiction and become an enduring icon of popular culture.
