Summary
Overview essays examine the literary history of the vampire and the critical reception of Stoker's most famous work. Other essays examine the use of sacred rituals within the novel and offer a psychological perspective. A final essay combines Marxist, feminist, and postcolonialist readings into a consideration of race, capitalism, and aesthetics.
