Since its publication in 1897 Dracula has enthralled generations of readers with the alluring malevolence of its undead Count, the most famous vampire in literature. Though Bram Stoker did not invent vampires, his novel helped catapult them to iconic stature, spawning a genre of stories and movies that flourishes to this day. A century of imitations has done nothing to diminish the fascination of Stoker's tale of a suave and chilling monster as he stalks his prey from a crumbling castle in Transylvania's Carpathian mountains to an insane asylum in England to the bedrooms of his swooning female victims. A classic of Gothic horror, Dracula remains an irresistible entertainment of undying appeal.

"Do you not think that there are things which you cannot understand, and yet which are; that some people see things that others cannot? But there are things old and new which must not be contemplate by men´s eyes, because they know -or think they know- some things which other men have told them. Ah, it is the fault of our science that it wants to explain all; and if it explain not, then it says there is nothing to explain."

From the Jacket

THE POPULARITY OF VAMPIRES in contemporary culture traces its roots to this 1897 novel: the Transylvanian tale of the bloodthirsty Count Dracula; the naive young English lawyer who becomes his prisoner; the women Count Dracula stalks, including the lawyer’s fiancee and her friend; and the amazing Professor Van Helsing and his companions, who try to thwart Dracula’s bloodthirsty adventures. Vampires had been wreaking devilment through European folklore for generations before Dracula was published, and others had written vampire novels, but Bram Stoker elevated the nocturnal creature to iconic stature. A classic of Gothic horror, an undying wellspring of modern mythology, and irresistible entertainment, Dracula lives forever in the classics of literature. No stake through the heart or mouthful of garlic can destroy this fantastic Victorian adventure novel.
