DESCRIPTION : A labor of love, this fully annotated edition of Bram Stoker's Dracula is meant for the university level literature student. Can be used as a resource when reading Dracula or on its own. Inspired by the La Trobe University subject Gothic Literature and its Children, and initially made up of notes taken for that subject, and driven by the editor's difficulty in locating a digital annotated copy at a reasonable price. Hundreds of hours of work has gone into this edition and it is being offered at a low price to ensure that as many students as possible are able to benefit from it. Some of the most recent literary scholarly approaches to the text have been incorporated into the annotations, alongside definitive articles and interpretations. Students are offered a never before seen enriched text that both enhances the depth of reading and prepares for further scholarly investigation. Sheds light on often dismissed and neglected parts of the text and considers different scholarly approaches to interpretation, including post-colonial and gender studies. This edition also includes definitions for obscure terms, explanations of key parts of the text and important historical notes. Relying on dozens of sources, including many known to have been employed by Bram Stoker. Includes images from the British Library and other collections, to help illustrate key aspects of the text. Lavishly illustrated throughout, including over 20 original and exclusive artworks. This edition is a scholarly reference, a beautifully formatted novel and a creative piece of art. The original text of the American edition of Dracula has been carefully edited to provide the closest possible presentation of Bram Stoker's original vision. Important differences between the American and British editions are noted in the annotations and the text has been completely edited to fix spelling errors and typos, where doing so enhances, rather than diminishes, the integrity of the text. Possibly the most accurate, and faithful to the author's original intentions, edition of the Dracula text ever published. Meant for the university level student, but equally engaging for the casual reader or anybody with an interest in Dracula. Deliberately priced to allow for maximum possible accessibility. A truly enhanced edition of Dracula, and a labor of love.

DESCRIPTION : Before acclaimed playwright and filmmaker Neil LaBute became the creator and showrunner of Syfy’s hit series Van Helsing, he had already adapted Dracula for the stage—with a fierce female Van Helsing as the vampire hunter. In this masterful adaptation, Neil LaBute brings a rich theatricality and his provocative way with language and story to the world of Count Dracula, Van Helsing, Jonathan Harker, and his beloved Mina—this time, with very much a mind of her own—infusing the classic gothic tale of terror, obsession, and pathos with a modern edge. Chilling yet stylish in its atmosphere, dark yet deeply human in its emotional impact, Neil LaBute’s Dracula: A Thriller in 2 Acts is a tribute to both LaBute’s dramatic vision and the timelessness of Stoker’s novel.

DESCRIPTION : Post/modern Dracula explores the postmodern in Bram Stoker's Victorian novel and the Victorian in Francis Ford Coppola's postmodern film to demonstrate how the century that separates the two artists binds them more than it divides them. What are the postmodern elements of Stoker's novel? Where are the Victorian traits in Coppola's film? Is there a postmodern gloss on those Victorian traits? And can there be a Victorian directive behind postmodernism in general? The nine essays compiled in this collection address these and other relevant questions per the novel and the film at three distinct periods: (post)modern Victorianism, post/modernism, and finally postmodernism. Part I on (post)modernist issues in Stoker's novel establishes the link between Victorian themes and postmodern praxes that begins with colonialist concerns and ends with poststructuralist signification. Part II looks at the post/modernist traits in Stoker's Dracula, those obviously influenced by modernism but also, with the help of the novel's plasticity vis-a-vis the media over the last century, by postmodernism. Part III examines more closely the novel's postmodern characteristics, particularly with respect to Coppola's 1992 film, Bram Stoker's Dracula. Dracula defies time and promises to undermine any critical study of it that precisely tries to situate it within a given epoch, including a postmodernist one. Given its relationship to late-capitalist economy, to post-Marxist politics, and to commodity culture, and given its universal appeal to human fears and anxieties, fetishes and fantasies, lusts and desires, Stoker's novel will forever remain post/modern-always haunting our future, as it has repeatedly done so our past. Though scholars of Dracula and Gothic literature in general will find some of the essays innovative and engaging per today's literary criticism, the book is also intended for both an informed general reader and a novice student of the novel and of the film. As such, a few essays are highly specialized in postmodern theory, whereas others are more centered around the sociohistorical context of the novel and film and use various postmodern theories as inroads into the novel's or the film's study.
