Vampire literature covers the spectrum of literary work concerned principally with the subject of vampires. The literary vampire first appeared in poetry, before becoming the stock figure of gothic fiction with the publication of Polidori's The Vampyre (1819). The masterpiece of the gothic horror genre is Bram Stoker's Dracula (1897). Some later vampire stories can be classed as fantasy and science fiction or even chick-lit.
