Polidori is known for his associations with the Romantic movement and credited by some as the creator of the vampire genre of fantasy fiction. The story was titled:The Vampyre: A Tale by Lord Byron.
Despite not having been written by Byron himself, the title stuck due to Lord Byron's reputation as a well-known author. The Vampyre was arguably the first vampire story to be written in English prose, with such a wide-ranging influence, that it created the now-popular image of the vampire as an aristocratic seducer.
