The real life Byron eventually endowed Polidori with the less than flattering epithet: But the pure evil for evil’s sake vampire was kind of fun, I will admit. Polodori has inspired many of the authors who have written about vampires Stoker, Le Fanu and for this reason the book deserves to be read, but for me it didn’t work so well.

Before anyone criticises Polidori’s writing which I’ve seen described as ‘clunky’ can we just remember that he was a doctor by profession, not a writer. He gives generously, but only to those who will use his generosity to put themselves in an even worse situation.

Despite strong evidence that he committed suicide by means of poidori acid, the coroner gave a verdict of death by natural causes. And he is an enemy who is worse than deadly if crossed. Salem Hipu marked it as to-read Dec 12, Why the hell would anyone keep an oath plidori a year and a day when his sister’s life was at stake?

The Vampyre; A Tale

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Aubrey does not connect Ruthven with the murder and rejoins him in his travels. His sister Charlotte made a transcription of his Diaries, but censored “peccant passages” and destroyed the original.

This probably strikes modern readers as a false conflict, since most of them wouldn’t take their own word that seriously; but while this novella has plenty of implausible melodramatic elements, for Polidori’s generation this dilemma would seem genuine: Polidori has earned his place in the vampire fiction canon. Initially compelling but ominous, he eventually drives Aubrey to suffering, self-doubt, and social isolation; it’s an effective, claustrophobic gothic nightmare, not undercut by the text’s brevity, predictability, or unremarkable writing.

Ruthven marries Aubrey’s sister. The editor in my edition flatly accuses him of plagiarism, and it’s a fair cop.

Even if some settings or behaviours seem to be dated to us modern readers it has some eerie moment. History aside, the story itself started strong, but fell short towards the end.

He later produced this literary treatment of the vampire legend the first one to be published in English using Byron’s story, which the famed poet started but left incomplete, as a basis, but re-writing it completely. Polidori is said to have been inspired from an abandoned work of Byron himself and had allegedly based the character of Lord Ruthven on him.
