Vlad Tepes, l’impalatore, nel XV secolo fu il principe della Valacchia, regione situata nel cuore dell’Europa Orientale. Personaggio leggendario per la sua ferocia e crudeltà, ben presto venne chiamato “Dracula”, e cioè drago o demonio. Ma chi è stato veramente l’uomo che la cultura popolare prima e la letteratura gotica poi hanno reso immortale con il nome di Conte Dracula? Un paladino della sua nazione e della fede cristiana, oppure un pazzo sadico e feroce, un bestiale e sanguinario torturatore? Quanto c’è di vero nelle leggende che circolavano finché Dracula era ancora in vita e che poi sono state trasfigurate nei secoli fino ad arrivare ai giorni nostri? Tante domande senza risposta circondano il nome di Vlad Tepes, ma il mistero più oscuro riguarda tutti noi: iniziare un viaggio dentro alla storia e al mito di Dracula significa partire per un viaggio tra i meandri più oscuri della mente umana, significa intraprendere un cammino molto rischioso dentro al lato oscuro che alberga nel cuore di ognuno di noi. Sì, anche dentro al nostro, che ci piaccia o no...

Most of the vast audience attracted to the subject of Dracula know him only in his fictional, one-dimensional form: vampire! Yet the truth behind the historical character--voevode, warlord--of 15th C. Romania is at least as equally fascinating as any contrived account of his supernatural persona. Vlad Dracula faithfully follows his life story as hostage, fugitive, prince, and prisoner, as well as his legend. His principality of Wallachia was caught between two voracious predators: the kingdom of Hungary and the Ottoman empire. They tried to break Dracula with overwhelming force and terror. But Dracula turned their own tactics against them, and against criminals and factions in his own land, earning the name Tepes--The Impaler--in the process. He was a strange mix of husband, father, soldier, statesman, and berserker. He annihilated 50,000 people--one-tenth of his own population. Cursed by his native Orthodox Christian Church, he indeed evolved into a legend. But even today he is Romania's Robin Hood.

Written in 1879 (18 years before Dracula) by 19-year-old Marie Nizet, Captain Vampire, in its method and tone alike, is way ahead of its time. Although its plot has supernatural elements, and its antagonist is manifestly demonic, the novel's true purpose is to bring out the horror of war. A significant work in the history of horror fiction, it is undoubtedly one of the finest literary works ever to have made use of the vampire motif.
