Exhibition on Now: Bram Stoker & the Haunting of Marsh’s Library
Our online version of the exhibition 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.
