The story of The Vampire, which is reproduced below, arose in 1816, in a meeting between Lord Byron, Marhiew Lewis, Claire Clairmont, Percy and Mary Shelly and Polidori himself, at Villa Diodati, in Geneva. Inspired by a German book of ghost legends, those present came to a challenge: each had to write a horror story. As a result of this provocation, Mary Shelley developed the plot of Frankenstein, and Polidori the story whose main character, Lord Ruthven, a mysterious aristocrat, is probably inspired by Byron himself.
