Description


Bram Stoker's gothic horror masterpiece pits good against evil and life against death, all under the thrall of the original vampire...

Count Dracula sleeps in a silent tomb beneath his desolate castle. His eyes are stony and his cheeks are deathly pale. But on his lips, there is a mocking smile--and a trickle of fresh blood. He has been dead for centuries, yet he may never die...

Here begins the most celebrated vampire story in history, a tale of age-old evil that is forever new. With its haunting mix of suspense and horror, Bram Stoker's Dracula is a novel of compelling power. Reader, be warned: once you enter Castle Dracula, you might not escape its baleful spell--even after you close this book.

With an Introduction by Leonard Wolf
and an Afterword by Jeffrey Meyers

About the Author


Bram Stoker (1847-1912) was born in Dublin. After attending Dublin University, he spent ten years as an Irish civil servant, trying to keep up his writing in his free time. By 1871, he had become the drama critic for the Dublin Mail and had gained experience as a newspaper editor, reporter, and short story writer. In 1878 he became the personal assistant to Sir Henry Irving, the foremost Shakespearean actor of his day, accompanying him on tours and managing Irving's theater. After Irving's death in 1905, Stoker worked on the literary staff of the London Telegraph. Dracula, his most famous work, was published in 1897. Leonard Wolf is a teacher, an author, a leading translator of Yiddish literature, and an award-winning authority on Gothic literature and film. He has edited such volumes as Wolf's Complete Book of Terror and Blood Thirst: 100 Years of Vampire Literature. Jeffrey Meyers has published forty-five books and 630 articles on literature, film, and art. A distinguished biographer, he's written lives of Hemingway, Lawrence, Conrad, Poe, Fitzgerald, Frost, Orwell, Bogart, and Modigliani. He's had twenty-five works translated into twelve languages and published on six continents. He is one of ten Americans who are Fellows of the Royal Society of Literature, and in 2005 he received an Award in Literature "to honor exceptional achievement" from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
