Introduction and Notes by Dr David Rogers, Kingston University.

'There he lay looking as if youth had been half-renewed, for the white hair and moustache were changed to dark iron-grey, the cheeks were fuller, and the white skin seemed ruby-red underneath; the mouth was redder than ever, for on the lips were gouts of fresh blood, which trickled from the corners of the mouth and ran over the chin and neck. Even the deep, burning eyes seemed set amongst the swollen flesh, for the lids and pouches underneath were bloated. It seemed as if the whole awful creature were simply gorged with blood; he lay like a filthy leech, exhausted with his repletion.'

Thus Bram Stoker, one of the greatest exponents of the supernatural narrative, describes the demonic subject of his chilling masterpiece Dracula, a truly iconic and unsettling tale of vampirism.

Back cover copy

A popular bestseller in Victorian England, Stoker's hypnotic tale of the bloodthirsty Count Dracula, whose nocturnal atrocities are symbolic of an evil ages old yet forever new, endures as the quintessential story of suspense and horror. The unbridled lusts and desires, the diabolical cravings that Stoker dramatized with such mythical force, render Dracula resonant and unsettling a century later.

About Bram Stoker

Bram Stoker, geb. 1847 in Dublin, gestorben 1912 in London. Seine Biografie ist hinter dem Ruhm seines Dracula in Vergessenheit geraten. Die ersten sieben Jahre seines Lebens war er durch eine schwere Krankheit ans Bett gefesselt, ein Trauma, das er erst mit der Niederschrift seines Vampirromans ganz überwinden konnte. An der Dublin University entwickelte Stoker ungeahnte geistige und körperliche Talente, wurde Präsident einer philosophischen und einer historischen Studentengemeinschaft und war der Star einer Fußballmannschaft. Nach dem Studium schlug er sich als unbezahlter Theaterkritiker und Zeitschriftenherausgeber durch, bis er 1878 Manager des berühmten Shakespeare-Darstellers Henry Irving wurde. In seiner Freizeit veröffentlichte er zehn Bücher, von denen allerdings nur Dracula internationale Anerkennung fand. Bram Stoker starb 1912, genau zehn Jahre bevor mit Murnaus Film "Nosferatu" der Durchbruch des dunkelsten Helden der Weltliteratur gelang.
