Stoker, Bram

orig. Abraham Stoker

born Nov. 8, 1847, Dublin, Ire.
died April 20, 1912, London, Eng.

Irish writer.

Though bedridden until he was seven years old, Stoker later became an outstanding athlete. He was in the civil service for 10 years and the manager of actor Henry Irving for 27 years, writing letters for his employer and accompanying him on tours. During this period he began writing fiction; his masterpiece was the immensely successful gothic novel Dracula (1897). Derived from vampire legends, the tale became the basis for a whole genre of literature and film. None of his other works, including The Lair of the White Worm (1911), approached its popularity or quality.

▪ Irish writer
born Nov. 8, 1847, Dublin, Ire.
died April 20, 1912, London, Eng.
 author of the horror tale Dracula.

      Although an invalid in early childhood—he could not stand or walk until he was seven—Stoker outgrew his weakness to become an outstanding athlete and football (soccer) player at the University of Dublin. After 10 years in the civil service at Dublin Castle, during which he was also an unpaid drama critic for the Dublin Mail, he made the acquaintance of his idol, the actor Sir Henry Irving (Irving, Sir Henry), and from 1878 until Irving's death 27 years later, he acted as his manager, writing as many as 50 letters a day for him and accompanying him on his American tours. Stoker's first book, The Duties of Clerks of Petty Sessions in Ireland, a handbook in legal administration, was published in 1879.

      Turning to fiction late in life, Stoker published The Snake's Pass, a novel with a bleak western-Ireland setting, in 1891, and in 1897 his masterpiece, Dracula, appeared. 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; Mina, Jonathan's wife; Dr. Seward; and Lucy Westenra, a victim who herself became a vampire—the story is that of a Transylvanian vampire who, using supernatural powers, makes his way to England and there victimizes innocent people to gain the blood on which he lives. Led by Dr. Van Helsing, Harker and his friends, after many hair-raising adventures, are at last able to overpower and destroy Dracula. The immensely popular novel enjoyed equal success in several versions as a play and as a film.

      Stoker wrote several other novels—among them The Mystery of the Sea (1902), The Jewel of Seven Stars (1904), and The Lady of the Shroud (1909)—but none of them approached the popularity or, indeed, the quality of Dracula.

Additional Reading
Stoker's life and work are discussed in Phyllis A. Roth, Bram Stoker (1982); and Barbara Belford, Bram Stoker (1996). Clive Leatherdale, Dracula: The Novel & the Legend, rev. ed. (1993), is a study of the novel and of Stoker's research. David Glover, Vampires, Mummies, and Liberals (1996), looks at Stoker in his late-19th-century political context. Seamus Deane, Strange Country (1997), offers brilliant insights into Stoker's Irish influences.
