Available online! Bram Stoker & the Haunting of Marsh’s Library
Explore Bram Stoker’s reading in this digital exhibition.
‘Bram Stoker and the Haunting of Marsh’s Library’ is available at www.marshlibrary.ie/digi/
It describes what the author of Dracula read in our small library as a teenager in 1866 and 1867.
Several books Stoker consulted here mention Transylvania and the historical figure of Dracula. Stoker’s trips to this library may have inspired his most famous novel, which was published three decades later in 1897.
The books Stoker requested in Marsh’s do explain, though, why the vampires in the Dracula novel are killed on 5 November.
