BIOGRAPHY® researches the life of the famous writer who produced classic tales such as ''Dracula.''
- Go beyond his famous work to examine lesser known tales and details of his life.
- Hear his words as captured in correspondence to Walt Whitman and others.
- Probe the mind of Dracula's father.
Growing up in Ireland, he dreamed of becoming a writer, but his father had a more stable career in mind for his son. After nearly a decade in civil service, he left his job and nation behind.
Bram Stoker's name is inextricably linked with that of his most famous creation--Count Dracula. Written in 1897, it won Stoker worldwide acclaim and has remained one of the cornerstones of horror ever since. BIOGRAPHY® tells how Stoker came to his masterpiece while exploring the sometimes surprising details of his life. See how he pursued his first love while working as a bureaucrat, volunteering as a theatrical critic for Dublin's Evening Mail. Then, in 1878, he leapt at the chance to work for London's Lyceum theater, and his new life began.
From his apparently strained marriage to friendships with figures like Oscar Wilde and Walt Whitman, this fascinating hour introduces the man behind one of literature's most enduring creations.
