Overview

Unlike other volumes in the series, this one does not profile writers of a particular era but instead focuses on one novel published in 1897. Aiming to provide a convenient and thorough resource for scholars (interest is burgeoning; the vampire myth remains widely popular), Miller (Memorial U. of Newfoundland) provides an introductory essay. She then presents a plethora of material—essays, selections, and primary documents—in three sections on Bram Stoker's life and career, the vampire before Dracula, and literary contexts for the novel. B&w illustrations complement the text. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
