This study of Bram Stoker focuses on Stoker as a Gothic writer. Identified with Dracula, Stoker is largely responsible for taking the Gothic away from medieval castles and placing it at the centre of modern life. This book examines Stoker's contribution to the modern notion of Gothic.
Carol Senf, a professor at Georgia Tech, has written three books on Stoker as well as a number of shorter works on Stoker and other Victorian writers.
