"Dracula" by Bram Stoker

Friends of the CCCB

Exclusive for Friends of the CCCB

Antonio Lozano suggests reading Dracula, a masterpiece of Victorian literature, a classic that establishes the foundations of the vampire genre, by presenting such unforgettable characters as Count Dracula himself or the vampire hunter par excellence, the professor Van Helsing.

 

Dracula (Titan Books) 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 so he may find new blood and spread undead curse, 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.
