The popular appeal of Bram Stoker's Count Dracula, now over a hundred years old, shows little sign of waning. No other monster has endured, and proliferated, in quite the same way - even if we now seem to prefer interviewing, rather than staking, our vampires. It is only over the last twenty years, however, that Dracula has begun to receive much serious critical attention. This volume collects the most significant contemporary work on the novel from a wide variety of theoretical perspectives, including Marxist, Psychoanalytical, Historicist and Feminist giving a unique collection which engages with questions about the psychological and social significance of this highly transgressive and enduringly popular text.
GLENNIS BYRON is Lecturer in English Studies at the University of Stirling.
