John William Polidori (1795-1821) was, for a brief period, the personal physician to Lord Byron. Half Italian, he was the uncle of the Rossetti siblings, and it was William Michael Rossetti, in his role as family recorder, who published Polidori's manuscript diary after nearly a century, in 1911. This account of his time with Byron (which ended two months later when they quarrelled and parted company) is the only contemporary account of the few weeks, crucial to the development of the Romantic movement, during which Mary Shelley's Frankenstein arose from a storytelling competition at the Villa Diodati. Polidori's later career as a physician and writer was hampered by a severe accident in 1817 which left him with brain damage. His most famous work, The Vampyre, was published in 1819, but attributed to Byron, leading both men to threaten the publisher with lawsuits. Polidori died (probably a suicide) two years later. William Michael Rossetti (1829 - 1919) was an English writer and critic. Publisher's note

El vampiro by John William Polidori( )

17 editions published between 1824 and 2020 in 4 languages and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The meeting between Aubrey, a young and rich English gentleman, imbued with ideals of purity and honor, and Lord Ruthven, an aristocrat with a magnetic gaze and undisputed charisma, seems to sanction the beginning of a mutual friendship. The two thus embarked on a journey that must have had Greece as a final destination. But already in Rome, his companion's loose behavior induces Aubrey to continue in solitude. In Athens, he falls in love with Ianthe, a beautiful local girl who tells him the legend, famous throughout Greece, of vampires. When the young woman dies in mysterious circumstances, everyone is certain that the culprit is indeed a vampire. Following, an escalation of mysteries and macabre discoveries about Lord Ruthven, who will prove capable of atrocious crimes and reprehensible baseness. A masterpiece, born from a collaboration between the genius of Lord Byron and the invective of John William Polidori, which will make the reader remain breathless.--Google translation of page [4] of cover
