DRACULA: ORIGIN - Facts about Bram Stoker - The Famous Dracula Author

There’s a reason why Bram Stoker is one of the most respected writers until today. After all, he’s the man behind the horror novel Dracula and not like some essay writing service, which delivered fright, excitement, and an appealing work of vampire fiction. However, Stoker’s life was beyond authorship. Here are some must know facts about this novelist.

He Published Several Books Not Just Dracula

Stoker was a legitimately gifted novelist who had numerous works written aside from Dracula. Some of his works was uch as The Lady of The Shroud and Lady Athlyne, which displayed his greatness and gave a remarkable literary legacy.  Fascinatingly, it wasn’t always horror fiction that Bram wrote about. He authored 12 novels and a number of short story collections. Overall, he wrote about 18 books.

Poor Health Condition

The legendary author was mostly bed-ridden until the age of 7. The strange part was that the nature of his illness was never found out. Since he’s always in bed, Stoker’s mother would entertain him by telling tales of ghosts and ghouls from Irish history. Many have said that this time of his life introduced him to the myths and ideas for Dracula.

He Studied Math

After a miraculous recovery of his ailment, Stoker enrolled at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland. Throughout his study, he was appreciated for his talent and for being a hardworking student. He finished studying from 1864 to 1870 with BA Mathematics degree.

He Transfered To London

Stoker met Florence Balcombe in 1978 while working as a theatre critic in the Dublin Evening Mail’s Theatre.  He fought Oscar Wilde for the actress’ hand which he won and eventually got married. Shortly after their wedding, they chose to stay in London where Stoker’s novelist career blossomed. They lived happily together with their only child, Irving.

He Was Close To Henry Irving

During Stoker’s lifetime, Irving was famous and a highly-regard actor. Stoker’s great luck happened when he made a review about Hamlet, one of Irving’s creations. The two instantly developed a strong friendship that Irving even appointed Stoker as his assistant in London. Also, Stoker became the manager at the famous Lyceum Theatre owned by Irving.

He Had Many Jobs

Aside from being a successful writer, Bram Stoker was a proficient athlete, biographer, journalist, theater manager, and critic.

Dracula Has Influences From Irish History

As everyone know, Dracula’s primary inspiration was based from the tale of murderous Vlad the Impaler.  But, not everybody knows that the main story of his most popular novel was taken completely from the Irish tradition and character of Manu the Magnificent.

He Met Two American Leaders

Another great thing Stoker benefited from being closely associated with Irving was it got him to many places like the White House. Because of this, Stoker had personally met two various American presidents; Teddy Roosevelt and William McKinley while working abroad with Irving.

Final Thoughts

It is evident that the life of Bram Stoker is almost as fascinating as his most well-known book – from his childhood ailment to having a successful education at Trinity College and becoming one of the most renowned literary geniuses all over the world. Stoker had an utmost mesmerizing life, and we should honor him not just an author, but as an accomplished human being.
