It was interesting to see how Stoker used real world events, people, and places (along with myths and rumor) as a basis for his novel.

Very good discussion of the life of Vlad Tepes, Vampire myths, and the Dracula story.

Florescue and McNally have written a a biography about Vlad the Impaler that is interesting, rich in detail, even-handed and circumspect. The book does a wonderful job of weaving together Dracula's personal life and ambitions with the cultural, social, political and military realities of the time. The authors also manage to separate fact from speculation without ruining the flow of the narrative. They were also at pains to separate the myth from the man. The book also examines Bram Stoker's Dracula novel in light of the real Dracula and his country. Dracula: Prince of Many Faces examines who Dracula was to various people - his family, his countrymen, the neighbouring states and his Ottoman enemies. Overall, this is one of the better biographies I have enjoyed.… (mais)
