Dracula is a horror novel about a vampire traveling to London from Transylvania in the late 1800s. The book is written in the form of dia- ries and letters by different characters in the story. Dracula opens with Jonathan Harker, a young salesperson traveling to Transylvania to sell Count Dracula a house in London. The Count takes the young man prisoner in his castle. Soon, Jonathan realizes that the Count is a vampire. Jonathan is afraid he will never be able to leave. He knows that he is in great danger. He decides to escape, but first he has to find a key in Dracula's room that will help him get out of the castle. Meanwhile, back to England, Jonathan's friends are worried about him, especially his girlfriend, Mina. After some time, Jonathan gets away from Count and returns to London. Soon after, Count Dracula arrives mysteriously in London, too. Jonathan and his friends try to discover how to stop Count Dracula from drinking people's blood. Before they can stop Dracula, he attacks Mina violently. He tries to turn her into a vampire, too.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1.7, University of Cologne, course: Gothic and Neo-Gothic Ficiton, 22 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Taking a look (an not even a close one) at movies or TV-series dealing with vampires, one immediately recognizes the vampire as a sexed-up figure, conveying the notion of the lascivious vamp as in Underworld, the noble alpha-male as in Blood Ties or the longed-for guardian and lover as in Moonlight. In her novels, Anne Rice describes the vampire's bite as a liturgical act (cf. Brittnacher 1994:131), Sheridan Le Fanu's female vampire Carmilla is actually a lesbian (cf. Leatherdale 1985, 54) and John Polidori's early story The Vampyre is considered to have successfully combined the vampire-motif with a seducing romanticism (Hurst 2002, 139; Leatherdale 1985, 51). There is a long tradition in sexing up vampire-figures, reaching back even to Bram Stocker's Dracula. Indeed, Bram Stoker combined different aspects of the literary vampire when he created Count Dracula (cf. Brittnacher 1994, 119ff; Hurst 141f). This mixture of well-tried elements may be one of the reasons why Bram Stoker's novel is widely seen as the "by far best-known literary treatment of the vampire myth" (Bentley 1972, 27). Amazingly, Dracula has never been out of print since it was first published in 1897 (Leatherdale 1985, 11; McNally et.al. 1994, 133) and can thus be said to have become the figurehead for the vampirism-phenomena. Consequently, James Twitchell asserts that "vampire and Dracula have become synonymous" (1981, 132).

E-BOOK EXCERPT

The 19th-century novel Dracula was such a seminal work that it influenced the horror novel genre and many other parts of popular culture as well. While readers may think they know this story through movies and books that followed its publication, they'll be surprised at how gripping the true Bram Stoker tale is, especially in enthralling graphic novel form. Stoker's haunting words and the unnerving images of illustrator Anthony Williams transform this classic work of literature into an edge-of-the-seat thriller for all levels of readers.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

The figure of the vampire has been around for centuries, and has lost none of its fascination. Although, the portrayal of the vampire in literature today has not much in common with its historical origins, the vampire belief is based on true events. Bram Stoker's novel ‘Dracula’ laid the foundation for the success story of the vampire. He created something sinister, a monster in the shape of a gentleman. The evil of the Victorian society was personified in the form of the revenant. Boundaries between good and evil, human and non-human, death and life are blurred and unrecognizable in his book. In contrast, Anne Rice creates a world where humans and vampires live next to each other. Her vampires resemble human beings not only in terms of their bodies, but also in terms of their minds. There is no horror detectable, but amazement and identification with the revenants by the reader. In this context, the differentiation of the constructed images of the vampires in the two novels, ‘Dracula’ by Bram Stoker and ‘Interview with the Vampire’ by Anne Rice, is analyzed. Thereby, the study investigates those elements that have been adopted, those ones that have developed over the time, and the consequences that go along with the manner of construction.

Will the Count succeed in his quest to create a race of blood-lusting creatures of the night?Which will prove the stronger?superstition or science?Defiantly challenging Victorian conventions, Bram Stoker?s Dracula examines the nature of evil and arrives at the horrific conclusion that the forces which would destroy humanity are not lurking in the shadows of the night, but within the human soul.Modern readers still find that their own most-cherished nightmares are evoked by Lucy's and Mina's battle against succumbing to the seductive enticements of the soulless vampire.
