Frank Kirchbach, Lenore



Date: 1896

Illustration inspired by Lenore, poem written by German author Gottfried August Bürger in 1773, published in 1774.

Lenore is generally characterised as being part of the 18th century Gothic ballads, and although the character that returns from its grave in the poem is not considered to be a vampire, the poem has been very influential on vampire literature.
