In Victorian England, a marked fear of Russia prevailed in the government and the public. As a result of the Crimean War and other Russian threats to the British empire, the English mind was haunted by a shadowy enemy of barbarous Eastern invaders. The influence of this Russophobia is evident in the works of Bram Stoker, who responded to the Russian challenge to British Imperial hegemony through the character of Dracula, a primitive and menacing Eastern figure destroyed by warriors pledged to the Crown. The text investigates the role of Russophobia in Stoker’s fiction, particularly his novels Dracula and The Lady of the Shroud. It offers historical information about Russophobia and the Crimean War, considers Slavic and Balkan connections, and analyzes Stoker’s vampire themes. The resulting work shows how two nations’ histories intertwine in an unexpected literary avenue. Illustrations include numerous political cartoons of the era.

Book Description McFarland & Co Inc, United States, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. During famed Dracula author Bram Stoker's life in Victorian-era England, there was a marked and prevalent fear of Russia, termed Russophobia, in the government and the British public. Events such as the Crimean War and World War I created this perception of barbarous invaders in the English mind, and in his work Stoker responds to the Russian challenge to British hegemony through the character of Dracula, a primitive and menacing Eastern figure destroyed by warriors pledged to the Crown. Until this book, little attention had been paid to possible Russian influences on Stoker. Through its five chapters, the text investigates the role that Russophobia played in the formation of Bram Stoker's fictional works, particularly his novels "Dracula" and "The Lady of the Shroud", both vampire novels, and argues that the author lived during a milieu rich in antagonism towards Russia. Offering historical information about Russophobia and the Crimean War, including the consequences of the post-war fallout, Slavic and Balkan connections and analysis of Stoker's vampiric themes, this is a work of two nations' histories that intertwine through an unexpected literary avenue. The book contains 28 photographs and illustrations, including historical political cartoons and editorial illustrations, as well as a full bibliography. Seller Inventory # AAN9780786424078
