Overview

In this volume, the gothic novel Dracula is examined from a variety of critical viewpoints. Overview essays examine the literary history of the vampire and the critical reception of Stoker’s most famous work. Another essay considers Stoker’s novel in the context of the waning days of the Victorian era, as the creep of modernity threatened the period’s established beliefs and values. Other essays examine the use of sacred rituals within the novel and offer a psychological perspective. A final essay combines Marxist, feminist, and postcolonialist readings into a consideration of race, capitalism, and aesthetics.
