Stoker still not getting deserved recognition

YOUR correspondent Jim Yates (Letters, May 10) makes an apt point that the recent recognition of Dublin as a city of literature by UNESCO has yet to be reflected in any meaningful tribute to the city's literary greats.

He urges the staging of the plays of Oscar Wilde, and his letter is captioned with a handsome picture of the statue to Oscar in Merrion Square.

Oscar Wilde is lucky. Not so fortunate is his one-time college friend and fellow Dubliner, Bram Stoker, author of ‘Dracula’ and other ghostly thrillers and romances.
