Pequena biografia
In 1816, Dr. John Polidori became the personal physician of Lord Byron and accompanied him on a trip through Europe. Polidori was present during the famous summer at the Villa Diodati on Lake Geneva in Switzerland when Byron, the Shelleys, and Claire Clairmont created ghost stories to amuse each other.

Though one of the earliest English-language pieces of fiction about vampires, other than this claim, I don't find much terribly of interest to the very dense, somewhat overwrought (and yet paradoxically lacking in emotion) short story here.

(Bracketed, somewhat confusingly, by real world letters/discussion about Lord Byron, aside from referencing the gathering that led to the writing of Frankenstein, among other things.)

Certes, on a fait plus sanguinolent et bien plus inquiétant depuis, mais cette nouvelle est celle qui a popularisé la figure du vampire et a donc un intérêt en tant que telle.
J’ai bien aimé la façon dont la figure du vampire apparaît déjà comme jouisseuse, s’offrant même des voyages en Italie en vogue à l’époque. C’est aussi la notion d’honneur qui est au centre de la nouvelle, puisque c’est l’honneur qui empêche le narrateur de parler et de dénoncer le vampire, vampire qui a lui-même peut-être de l’honneur puisqu’il ne vide la sœur du narrateur de son sang qu’après l’avoir dûment épousée !… (mais)
