Bram Stoker’s immortality is proving more unpierceable than that of his bloodthirsty creation, Dracula.

事实证明,布拉姆·斯托克(Bram Stoker)的不朽比他笔下嗜血的产物德古拉(Dracula)的更无法刺破。

Stoker, who was born in Ireland on this day in 1847, gave everlasting life to Dracula, the Transylvanian vampire, in the 1897 novel of the same name, and then took it away.

1847年的今天,斯托克生于爱尔兰。在1897年的同名小说中,他赋予了特兰西瓦尼亚吸血鬼德古拉无尽的生命,然后又将其夺走。

Since then, Stoker’s tale has been reimagined countless times, in books, on television and in films, like “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” (1992).

自此之后,在书中、电视上和电影里,斯托克的故事被重新阐释了无数次,比如《惊情四百年》(Bram Stoker’s Dracula,1992)。

Now, one of his descendants is hoping to revive previously unpublished parts of the story.

现在,他的一名后人希望能重新恢复这个故事中此前未出版的部分。

Stoker took seven years to write the original novel, clawing his way through an overabundance of imagination and research that left much of the material in drafts.

斯托克花了七年来创作这部原创小说,在丰富的想象力和研究中一路前行,草稿里因此留下了大量素材。

The novelist’s great grandnephew Dacre Stoker announced he will release a prequel, “Dracul,” in 2018. It draws heavily from Bram Stoker’s original notes and private journal, and from family legends. Paramount has already bought the movie rights, so Dracula may be resurrected on the big screen once again.

这位小说家的曾侄孙戴克·斯托克(Dacre Stoker)宣布将于2018年出版前传《德拉库》(Dracul)。前传大部分取材于布拉姆·斯托克的原作和私人日记,还有家族传说。派拉蒙已经买下了电影版权,所以德古拉可能会再次重现在大银幕上。
