About John William Polidori. John William Polidoi was an Italian English physician and writer, known for his associations with the Romantic movement and credited by some as the creator of the vampire genre of fantasy fiction. He had three brothers and four sisters. He was one of the earliest pupils at recen John William Polidori was an Italian English physician and writer, known for his associations with the Romantic movement vamprio credited by some as campiro creator of the vampire genre of fantasy fiction.
He was one of the earliest pupils at recently established Ampleforth College fromand in went up to the University of Edinburgh, where he wrote a thesis on vampirk and received his degree as a doctor of medicine on 1 August at the age of Polidori entered Lord Byron’s service as his personal physician, and accompanied Byron on a trip through Europe.
One night in June, after the company had read aloud from the Tales of the Deada collection of horror tales, Byron suggested that they each write a ghost story. Mary Shelley worked on a tale that would later evolve into Frankenstein. Byron wrote and quickly abandoned a fragment of a story, which Polidori used later as the basis for his own tale, The Vampyrethe first vampire story published in English.
Rather than use the crude, bestial vampire of folklore as a basis for his poliidori, Polidori based his character on Byron.
Polidori named the character “Lord Ruthven” as a joke. The name was originally used in Lady Caroline Lamb’s novel Glenarvonin which a thinly-disguised Byron figure was also named Lord Ruthven. Polidori’s Lord Ruthven was not only the first vampire in English fiction, but was also the first fictional vampire in the form we recognize today—an aristocratic fiend who preys among high society.
Dismissed by Byron, Polidori travelled in Italy and then returned to England. Much to both his and Byron’s chagrin, “The Vampyre” was released as a new work by Byron. Byron even released his own Fragment of a Novel in an attempt to clear up the mess, but, for better or worse, “The Vampyre” continued to be attributed to him. His long, Byron-influenced theological poem The Fall of the Angelswas published anonymously in ep He died in Augustweighed down by depression and gambling debts. Despite strong evidence that he committed suicide by means of prussic acid, the coroner gave a verdict of death by natural causes.
His sister Charlotte made a transcription of his Diaries, but censored “peccant passages” and destroyed the original.
A reprint of vampirk book, The diary of Dr. Another reprint by the same title was printed by Norwood Editions Norwood, Pa. A number of films have depicted John Polidori and the genesis of the Frankenstein and “Vampyre” stories in He also appears as a minor and unsympathetic character in the Tim Powers horror novel The Stress o Books by John William Polidori.
