Again boring day and don't know what to write about then it was brought to my attention that on this day one famous writer was born.
So lets learn something.
On this day 165 years ago, 8 November 1847, Abraham "Bram" Stoker was born.
Stoker was born on 8 November 1847 at 15 Marino Crescent, Clontarf, on the north side of Dublin, Ireland. Stoker died at No. 26 St George's Square in Pimlico, London on 20 April 1912.
He had British citizenship and Irish nationality.
Most of his writing was Gothic, Romantic Fiction and he was a part of Victorian literary movement. For most people his work is mostly unknown but one of his works influenced our lives and our imagination.
While manager for Irving, and secretary and director of London's Lyceum Theater Stoker met Ármin Vámbéry who was a Hungarian writer and traveler. And on many occasions they talked about Ármin Vámbérys travels over the Balkans, Turkey, Arab countries and all over the central Asia.
Ármin Vámbéry voyage:
What interested Stoker the most was dark stories by Carpathian mountains and "ruthless" Vlad Tepes also known as Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia and most popular of all Dracula.
The original 541-page manuscript of Dracula, believed to have been lost, was found in a barn in northwestern Pennsylvania during the early 1980s. It included the typed manuscript with many corrections, and handwritten on the title page was "THE UN-DEAD." The author's name was shown at the bottom as Bram Stoker.
After this Stoker wrote more books but none of them had influence peoples imagination as his famous story about Transylvanian Prince.
Over 200 books, TV shows and movies were made since and they were all based on Bram Stoker work of art.
Well i know this was boring but at least i learned something about Irish culture and history.
Thank you all for reading.
