„Dracula“ is a story about unconditional friendship, love and the fight against evil, which Jonathan Harker and his comrades-in-arms take up. It is built up with special stylistic means (diary excerpts, newspaper excerpts, letter texts) and told in a stirring way. The material contains far more than many film adaptations have made of it and rightly belongs to world literature.
In this early montage novel the great oppositions of the 19th century meet on top of each other. Science struggles with faith, empiricism with intuition, Protestantism with Catholicism, the West with the East, the visible with the invisible. This novel even refers to the coming emancipation of women, and does not limit its female protagonists to the role of victims. But more than anything else, this is a novel on eternal love and infinite grief.
Bram Stoker (1847-1912), born in Dublin and unable to walk until the age of seven, became the most successful football player at Dublin University as a student. For 27 years he worked as a manager for the actor Henry Irving and as an English agent for Mark Twain. He did not live to see the worldwide success of his novel Dracula.
The size of the eBook is about 500 pages.
