Тень Вампира

Страшная Смерть Доктора Полидори (1795-1821), Автора "Вампира" (1819):

After writing an ambitious sacred poem, The Fall of the Angels, in 1821, Polidori, suffering from depression, died in mysterious circumstances, probably by self-administered poison, though the coroner's verdict was that he had perished "by the visitation of God".

He was a talented but troubled young man with serious ambitions to be a writer, though his fate has been to be remembered only as a footnote in Romantic history. He might be better known had his sister not destroyed the journals he had been keeping during his travels with Byron. As well as being mid-wife to Frankenstein's monster, he was uncle to Dante Gabriel and Christina Rossetti.
