Bram Stoker

Bram Stoker (1847–1912) is best remembered today for Dracula, which is now considered one of the foremost examples of Gothic literature. Stoker wrote prolifically – both in his role on the staff of The Daily Telegraph, and as a novelist and short-story writer. Some of Stoker’s short stories appeared in three collections, including Dracula’s Guest and Other Weird Stories, but he was always better known for his novels. As a friend of Oscar Wilde, Stoker’s personal life attracted much speculation before his death in 1912.
