Summary : Dracula is one of the most famous public-domain horror novels in existence, responsible not just for introducing the eponymous Count Dracula, but for introducing many of the common tropes we see in modern horror fiction. Count Dracula isn’t the first vampire to have graced the pages of literature—that honor is thought to belong to Lord Ruthven in The Vampyr, by John William Polidori—but Dracula is the vampire on which modern vampires are based. Dracula wasn’t as famous in its day as it is today; readers of the time seemed to enjoy it as nothing more than a good story, and Stoker died nearly penniless. But its long-lasting influence is undeniable, and for all its age Dracula remains a gripping, fast-paced, and enjoyable read. This book is part of the Standard Ebooks project, which produces free public domain ebooks.

Summary : A biography of the real 15th-century Wallachian leader known as Vlad the Impaler, who inspired the classic horror novel by Bram Stoker. Dreaded by his enemies, emulated by later rulers like Ivan the Terrible, honored by his countrymen even today, Vlad Dracula was surely one of the most intriguing figures to have stalked the corridors of European and Asian capitals in the fifteenth century. Vlad Dracula also served as the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s classic vampire tale. However, as this biography proves, “the real Dracula is far more interesting than the fictional vampire” (Houston Chronicle). Covering Vlad Dracula’s entire life and subsequent legend, this book includes “a fascinating chapter on the mystery of Dracula’s empty grave” (New York Times Book Review). Praise for Dracula, Prince of Many Faces “Florescu and McNally manage to capture the ruthlessness, romance, and courage that characterized Dracula’s ultimately pitiable life. . . . A fascinating look at political intrigue in fifteenth-century Eastern Europe.” —Lamar B. Graham, Boston Phoenix Literary Supplement

Summary : This is the Complete Unabridged Collectors Edition of Dracula, the 1897 classic horror novel by Irish author Bram Stoker, featuring as its primary antagonist the vampire Count Dracula. It was first published as a hardcover in 1897 by Archibald Constable and Company. Dracula has been attributed to many literary genres including vampire literature, horror fiction, the gothic novel and invasion literature. Structurally it is an epistolary novel, that is, told as a series of letters, diary entries, ships' logs, etc. Literary critics have examined many themes in the novel, such as the role of women in Victorian culture, conventional and conservative sexuality, immigration, colonialism, postcolonialism and folklore. Dracula has inspired countless movies, books, and plays. But few, if any, have been fully faithful to this, Bram Stoker's original, best-selling novel of mystery and horror, love and death, sin and redemption. Dracula chronicles the vampire's journey from Transylvania to the nighttime streets of London. There, he searches for the blood of strong men and beautiful women while his enemies plot to rid the world of his frightful power. REVIEWS: "Dracula is a virtual textbook on Victorian repression of the erotic and fear of female sexuality." - Playboy "Before all the vampires of modern cinema and horror novels, there was Bram Stoker's Dracula, the original head honcho of horror. All others pale in comparison." - Stephen King "In this volume, lovingly restored to its original unabridged and untouched glory, the power and majesty of Bram Stoker's masterpiece emerges from the coffin dripping with new life." - Fangoria Magazine

Summary : “I am Dracula. Welcome to my house. Enter freely and of your own will.”Jonathan Harker has little idea that his business trip to meet the mysterious Count of Transylvania would turn into his worst nightmare. Held captive in Dracula’s strange, dark castle, Jonathan discovers that the Count is in fact a vampire, who has been living on human blood for centuries! Soon, Dracula claims his first victim, the beautiful Lucy Westenra, a friend of Jonathan’s wife Mina. But this is just the beginning of Dracula’s cruel intentions. And evil must be vanquished, before it can claim more victims! Now, it will take some clever and courageous people—Professor Van Helsing, Dr Seward, Arthur Holmwood, Quincey Morris, Jonathan and Mina Harker—to outwit and completely destroy the indomitable Dracula. Much before vampires became a fad for the 21st-century reader, Bram Stoker wrote Dracula. Packed with action, thrill and horror, and written in an epistolary form, this mother-of-all gothic novels is a classic page-turner.

Summary : This study of Bram Stoker focuses on Stoker as a Gothic writer. Identified with Dracula, Stoker is largely responsible for taking the Gothic away from medieval castles and placing it at the center of modern life. The study examines Stoker’s contribution to the modern notion of Gothic and thus to the history of popular culture and demonstrates that the excess generally associated with the Gothic is Stoker’s way of examining the social, economic, and political problems. His relevance today is his depiction of problems that continue to haunt us at the beginning of the twenty first century. What makes the current study unique is that it privileges Stoker’s use of the Gothic but also addresses that Stoker wrote seventeen other books plus numerous articles and short stories. Since a number of these works are decidedly not Gothic, the study puts his Gothic novels and short stories into the perspective of everything that he wrote. The creator of Dracula also wrote The Duties of Clerks of Petty Sessions in Ireland, a standard reference work for clerks in the Irish civil service, as well as The Man and Lady Athlyne, two delightful romances. Furthermore, Stoker was fascinated with technological development and racial and gender development at the end of the century as well as in supernatural mystery. Indeed the study demonstrates that the tension between the things that can be explained rationally and the things that cannot is important to our understanding of Stoker as a Gothic writer.

Summary : Jonathan Harker, a young English lawyer, travels to Castle Dracula in the Eastern European country of Transylvania to conclude a real estate transaction with a nobleman named Count Dracula. As Harker wends his way through the picturesque countryside, the local peasants warn him about his destination, giving him crucifixes and other charms against evil and uttering strange words that Harker later translates into “vampire.”Frightened but no less determined, Harker meets the count's carriage as planned. The journey to the castle is harrowing, and the carriage is nearly attacked by angry wolves along the way. Upon arriving at the crumbling old castle, Harker finds that the elderly Dracula is a well educated and hospitable gentleman. After only a few days, however, Harker realizes that he is effectively a prisoner in the castle.

Summary : Dracula is an 1897 Gothic horror novel by Irish author Bram Stoker. Famous for introducing the character of the vampire Count Dracula, the novel tells the story of Dracula's attempt to move from Transylvania to England, and the battle between Dracula and a small group of men and women led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing. Dracula has been assigned to many literary genres including vampire literature, horror fiction, the gothic novel and invasion literature. The novel touches on themes such as the role of women in Victorian culture, sexual conventions, immigration, colonialism, and post-colonialism. Although Stoker did not invent the vampire, he defined its modern form, and the novel has spawned numerous theatrical, film and television interpretations. Adaptations The story of Dracula has been the basis for numerous films and plays. Stoker himself wrote the first theatrical adaptation, which was presented at the Lyceum Theatre under the title Dracula, or The Undead shortly before the novel's publication and performed only once. Popular films include Dracula (1931), Dracula (alternative title: The Horror of Dracula) (1958), and Dracula (also known as Bram Stoker's Dracula) (1992). Dracula was also adapted as Nosferatu (1922), a film directed by the German director F. W. Murnau, without permission from Stoker's widow; the filmmakers attempted to avoid copyright problems by altering many of the details, including changing the name of the villain to "Count Orlok". The character of Count Dracula has remained popular over the years, and many films have used the character as a villain, while others have named him in their titles, including Dracula's Daughter, The Brides of Dracula, and Zoltan, Hound of Dracula. As of 2009, an estimated 217 films feature Dracula in a major role, a number second only to Sherlock Holmes (223 films). Most adaptations do not include all the major characters from the novel. The Count is always present, and Jonathan and Mina Harker, Dr. Seward, Dr. Van Helsing, and Renfield usually appear as well. The characters of Mina and Lucy are often combined into a single female role. Jonathan Harker and Renfield are also sometimes reversed or combined. Quincey Morris and Arthur Holmwood are usually omitted entirely (Bram Stoker's Dracula being a notable exception).
