Four classic vampire tales: 1) Il Vampiro, by John William Polidori, is perhaps the first vampire tale. Lord Ruthven is a charming gentleman who torments the hero of the story shattering all his hopes. 2) Carmilla, by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, is a beautiful and bewitching woman who fascinates her young victims. 3) Il soldato e il vampiro, by W.R.S. Rolesten, is a classic Russian tale about a vampire-wizard. 4) Perché il sangue è vita, by Francis Marion Crawford, is the story of a young and wild girl who turns into a vampire because of an unrequited love.
