About the Book

Dracula

by Bram Stoker

The punctured throat, the coffin lid slowly opening, the unholy shriek as the stake pierces the heart --- these are just a few of the chilling images Bram Stoker unleashed upon the world with his 1897 masterpiece, DRACULA. Inspired by the folk legend of nosferatu, the undead, Stoker created a timeless tale of gothic horror and romance that has enthralled and terrified readers ever since.

A true masterwork of storytelling, DRACULA has transcended generation, language and culture to become one of the most popular novels ever written. It is a quintessential tale of suspense and horror, boasting one of the most terrifying characters ever born in literature: Count Dracula, a tragic, night-dwelling specter who feeds upon the blood of the living, and whose diabolical passions prey upon the innocent, the helpless, and the beautiful. But DRACULA also stands as a bleak allegorical saga of an eternally cursed being whose nocturnal atrocities reflect the dark underside of the supremely moralistic age in which it was originally written --- and the corrupt desires that continue to plague the modern human condition.

The Dracula mythology has inspired a vast subculture, but the story has never been better told than by Stoker.
