Summary

This is a spectacular, lavishly illustrated homage to Bram Stoker's Dracula

With a daring conceit, Leslie S Klinger accepts Stoker's contention that the Dracula tale is based on historical fact. Traveling through 200 years of popular culture and myth as well as graveyards and the wilds of Transylvania, this haunting narrative is illuminated in Klinger's notes (including a detailed examination of the original typescript of Dracula , with its shockingly different ending, previously unavailable to scholars). Klinger investigates the many subtexts of the original narrative--from masochistic, necrophilic, homoerotic, "dentophilic," and even heterosexual implications of the story to its political, economic, feminist, psychological and historical threads. Klinger mines this 1897 classic for nuggets that will surprise even the most die-hard Dracula fans and introduce the vampire-prince to a new generation of readers.
