Dracula is a myth that captivates both the young and old. More than a hundred years after the vampire’s success as the protagonist of Bram Stoker’s classic novel (Dracula, 1887) it is more than overdue to dedicate a comprehensive work to this unconventional hero.
The present illustrated book informs Dracula specialists and everyday readers about the myth’s historic beginnings, its fictional representations in literature, and its film, TV, or stage adaptations during the 20th century. This collection of images is a must-have for everyone interested in Dracula and the world of horror - and might prove to today’s younger generation that vampires did not begin with the Twilight series.
The author Elizabeth Miller worked as a professor of English literature at the Memorial University of Newfoundland in Canada. Since 1990 she has specialised in Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula, its sources and influence. She is the renowned researcher and lecturer of this genre who may be regarded as an unchallenged expert on both Dracula and other vampires. Her publications include articles and books such as Bats, Vampires and Dracula (1998), Dracula: Sense & Nonsense (2000), Vampire Hunting in Transylvania (2002) or A Dracula Handbook (2005). She also participates in television shows and documentaries on vampires.
