Summary
"Since its publication in 1897, Dracula has never been out of print in English and has inspired literally hundreds of popular films. In fact, this remarkable work, like its predecessor Frankenstein, almost immediately established itself as an important modern myth. It explores various fin de siecle anxieties about race, class, and gender as well as tensions about the place of science and technology in the modern world, all questions that continue to haunt readers a century later."--Jacket
