Stoker was born on Nov. 8, 1847.

He wrote "Dracula" as if it were collected from actual documents like journal entries and newspaper clippings, thereby grounding the more supernatural elements of his story with a sense of realism.

The style came naturally to Stoker since he worked as a theater critic for the Dublin Evening Mail.
