John Polidori's The Vampyre; A Tale. Set in Italy, Greece, and London, The Vampyre is a reaction to the dominating presence of his employer Lord Byron, and transformed the figure of the vampire from the bestial ghoul of earlier mythologies into the glamorous aristocrat whose violence and sexual allure make him literally a "lady-killer." Polidori's tale introduced the vampire into English fiction, and launched a vampire craze.
Hagakure (Kyūjitai: 葉隱; Shinjitai: 葉隠; meaning Hidden by the Leaves or hidden leaves), or Hagakure Kikigaki is a practical and spiritual guide for a warrior, drawn from a collection of commentaries by the samurai Yamamoto Tsunetomo, the third ruler of what is now Saga prefecture in Japan. Tsuramoto Tashiro compiled these commentaries from his conversations with Tsunetomo from 1709 to 1716. It is also known as The Book of the Samurai, Analects of Nabeshima or Hagakure Analects.
