When estate agent solicitor’s clerk Jonathan Harker visits Transylvania to assist Count Dracula with the purchase of his London house, he discovers more about his client and his castle than he might wish.... Bram Stoker’s classic novel Dracula, originally titled The Un-Dead, was first published in 1897. It has had a pro­found influence on world literature. It has enjoyed enormous popularity since its publication and is singu­larly responsible for spawning an extraordinary vampire subculture in the second half of the twentieth century. Over a thousand novels and hundreds of films feature Dracula or other vampires, not to mention the countless cartoons, comics, and tele­vision programmes which were ultimately inspired by Stoker’s work. This edition includes the short story “Dracula’s Guest”, which was published in 1914 by Stoker’s widow, Florence, who said of the story: “It was originally excised owing to the length of the book, and may prove of interest to the many readers of what is considered my husband’s most remarkable work.” Abraham “Bram” Stoker was born in Clontarf in Dublin on 8 November 1847 and died in London on 20 April 1912. He was an Irish novelist and short story writer, who worked as the personal assistant of actor Henry Irving and business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London, which Irving owned. Mathew Staunton is printing historian from Dublin and proprietor of The Onslaught Press. He produced the illustrations for this edition on his press in Oxford.

Review:

Dracula is one of the few horror books to be honored by inclusion in the Norton Critical Edition series. (The others are Frankenstein, The Turn of the Screw, Heart of Darkness, The Picture of Dorian Gray, and The Metamorphosis.) This 100th-anniversary edition includes not only the complete authoritative text of the novel with illuminating footnotes, but also four contextual essays, five reviews from the time of publication, five articles on dramatic and film variations, and seven selections from literary and academic criticism. Nina Auerbach of the University of Pennsylvania (author of Our Vampires, Ourselves) and horror scholar David J. Skal (author of Hollywood Gothic, The Monster Show, and Screams of Reason) are the editors of the volume. Especially fascinating are excerpts from materials that Bram Stoker consulted in his research for the book, and his working papers over the several years he was composing it. The selection of criticism includes essays on how Dracula deals with female sexuality, gender inversion, homoerotic elements, and Victorian fears of "reverse colonization" by politically turbulent Transylvania.

From the Publisher:

One of the most popular stories ever told, Dracula (1897) has been re-created for the stage and screen hundreds of times in the last century. Yet it is essentially a Victorian saga, an awesome tale of thrillingly bloodthirsty vampire whose nocturnal atrocities reflect the dark underside of a supremely moralistic age. Above all, Dracula is a quintessential story of suspense and horror, boasting one of the most terrifying characters in literature: centuries-old Count Dracula, whose diabolical passions prey upon the innocent, the helpless, the beautiful. Bram Stoker, who was also the manager of the famous actor Sir Henry Irving, wrote seventeen novels. Dracula remains his most celebrated and enduring work -- even today this Gothic masterpiece has lost none of the spine-tingling impact that makes it a classic of the genre.
