Sidebars and a timeline provide additional historical connections and insights into the subject's life. Born in Ireland in 1847, Bram Stoker began life as a sickly child who spent many of his early years fighting an unknown illness. He was practically confined to bed and spent his time reading books and listening to his mother tell him about Irish myths and legends. He found many of these stories quite scary and he grew up to write his own frightening tales. His most popular novel, Dracula, was published in 1897. Stoker's Dracula was inspired in part by vampire stories from Eastern Europe and the life of Vlad the Impaler, a cruel prince who liked to kill his enemies by placing them on wooden stakes. The story of Dracula lives on today, long after Stoker's death in 1912, through numerous films and stories.
