The five stories are "Green Tea", "The Familiar", "Mr Justice Harbottle" (perhaps better known in its earlier, very different version, "An Account of Some Strange Disturbances in Aungier Street"), "The Room in the Dragon Volant" (not a ghost story but a notable mystery story that includes the theme of premature burial), "Carmilla", a compelling tale of a lesbian vampire, set in central Europe which inspired several films, including Hammer's The Vampire Lovers (1970), Roger Vadim's Blood and Roses (1960), Danish director Carl Theodor Dreyer's Vampyr (1932) and Harry Kümel's Daughters of Darkness in 1971.
A story of a young woman living in a solitary location with only her father and the help to keep her company. Laura is thankful to relieve her daily tedium when a visitor shows up in surprising circumstances, but little does she know that this mysterious character is far more than a pretty face.--Submitted by Anonymous
I recieved the following essay question: Carmilla is believed to be the pre-cursor to Bram Stoker's Dracula. How significant was Carmilla to the construction of Bram Stoker's novel Dracula? I have recently read both of the relevent texts but was wondering which features of Carmilla do you think were borrowed by Bram Stoker? Any opinions or example arguments would be much appreciated. Thank you in advanced, from the guy in the hat --> :hat:
The pre-cursor to Dracula. Anybody want to share opinions?
