1 “Dracula’s Guest” Information Source - Bram Stoker (November 8th, 1847- April 20th, 1912) Bram Stoker was an Irish author best known today for his 1897 novel Dracula . He was born in Dublin, Ireland and died in London, England. He attended Dublin Trinity College. He was the personal assistant of Sir Henry Irving and also managed the Lyceum theatre that Irving owned. “ Stoker became interested in the theatre while a student through his friend Dr. Maunsell.” The theatre is what sparked Stoker’s passion for writing. “Dracula’s Guest” was published in 1914, two years after Stoker died. Country/Region - The story was set in Munich, Germany and environs. Name - Wolves/Wolf yet not a wolf were what the vampire was referred to as. The dead were also considered vampires (The dead travel fast). The word vampire was taboo so they hinted around it but never used the word directly. Origin - It was due to suicides from years ago. It also seems like people can be affected by bites or epidemics.
