‘We are in Transylvania; and Transylvania is not England. Our ways are not your ways, and there shall be to you many strange things.’
Earnest and naive solicitor Jonathan Harker travels to Transylvania to organise the estate of the infamous Count Dracula at his crumbling castle in the ominous Carpathian Mountains. Through notes and diary entries, Harker keeps track of the horrors and terrors that beset him at the castle, telling his fiancé Mina of the Count’s supernatural powers and his own imprisonment. Although Harker eventually manages to escape and reunite with Mina, his experiences have led to a mental breakdown of sorts.
Meanwhile in England, Mina’s friend Lucy has been bitten and begins to turn into a vampire. With the help of Professor Van Helsing, a previous suitor of Lucy’s, Seward, and Lucy’s fiancé Holmwood attempt to thwart Count Dracula and his attempts on Lucy and consequently Mina’s life.
Arguably the most enduring Gothic novel of the 19th Century, Bram Stoker’s Dracula is as chilling today in its depiction of the vampire world and its exploration of Victorian values as it was at its time of publication.
A true masterwork of storytelling, Dracula has transcended generation, language, and culture to become one of the most popular novels ever written. It is a quintessential tale of suspense and horror, boasting one of the most terrifying characters ever born in literature: Count Dracula, a tragic, night-dwelling specter who feeds upon the blood of the living, and whose diabolical passions prey upon the innocent, the helpless, and the beautiful. But Dracula also stands as a bleak allegorical saga of an eternally cursed being whose nocturnal atrocities reflect the dark underside of the supremely moralistic age in which it was originally written—and the corrupt desires that continue to plague the modern human condition.
seminal horror novel that launched a thousand vampires, with its mists flowing in under doors, open caskets, bats beating
ferociously against windows, garlic flowers and golden crucifixes hanging in
Widely considered to be one of the top
100 books of all time, Bram Stoker’s Dracula has spawned a host of film,
television, and stage adaptations, and more than 100 years after its initial
publication, it continues to hold readers spellbound.
A classic work of gothic horror, Bram Stoker’s novel takes the form of letters and entries in diaries and journals, telling the story of Jonathan Harker, Abraham Van Helsing, and their friends and colleagues, as they encounter the Count, first as hunted, then as hunters.
The book deals with such themes as sexuality, Victorian womanhood, and colonialism, and is sure to offer something of interest for any reader.
