Depeschen mit dem Leitwort Bram Stoker

»In The Forgotten Writings of Bram Stoker, John Edgar Browning gathers Stoker’s early poetry, some of his journalism, several interviews, a number of trivial short stories, the catalogue of his library, and many other odds and ends.«

Michael Dirda
Author and reviewer Michael Dirda about two books, which collected the forgotten writings of Bram Stoker: The Forgotten Writings of Bram Stoker, edited by John Edgar Browning and The Lost Journal of Bram Stoker: The Dublin Years, edited by Elizabeth Miller and Dacre Stoker.
His fine review at The Washington Post.

»When he was twenty-two, Stoker read and fell in love with Walt Whitman’s poetry, finding solace and joy between the covers of Leaves of Grass. And, like many fans, he wanted the connection that he felt to Whitman to be real. Late one night, cloaked in the comfort of darkness, Stoker poured his soul out to Whitman in a shockingly honest letter that described himself and his disposition. That letter, when Stoker finally mustered the courage to mail it, would begin an unexpected literary friendship that lasted until Whitman’s death.«

»Jedenfalls schuf Stoker mit seinem Dracula das moderne Vampir-Bild, das heute noch in Spielfilmen und Büchern weiterlebt.«
