Bram Stoker by Carol A Senf( )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 1,880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study of Bram Stoker focuses on Stoker as a Gothic writer. Identified with Dracula, Stoker is largely responsible for taking the Gothic away from medieval castles and placing it at the centre of modern life. The author examines Stoker's contribution to the modern notion of Gothic and thus to the history of popular culture, and demonstrates that the excess generally associated with the Gothic is Stoker's way of examining social economic and political problems. His relevance today is his depiction of problems that continue to haunt us at the beginning of the twenty-first century. What makes the current study unique is that it privileges Stoker's use of the Gothic but also addresses the other books, numerous articles and short stories that Stoker wrote. Since a number of these works are decidedly not Gothic, the study puts his Gothic novels and short stories into the perspective of everything that he wrote. The creator of Dracula also wrote The Duties of Clerks of Petty Sessions in Ireland, a standard reference work tier clerks in the Irish civil service, as well as The Man and Lady Athlyne, two delightful romances. Furthermore, Stoker was fascinated with technological development and racial and gender development at the end of the century as well as having an interest in supernatural mystery. Indeed, this book demonstrates that the tension between the things that can be explained rationally and the things that cannot is important to our understanding of Stoker as a Gothic writer."--Page 4 of cover

11 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Best known today as the author of Dracula, Bram Stoker also wrote several other works, including The Jewel of Seven Stars, Lady Athlyne, and The Lair of the White Worm. In his exploration of supernatural subjects, such as vampirism, he is clearly a Gothic writer. The fantastic elements of his novels seem very much at odds with the world of science. Stoker, nonetheless, draws upon a large body of scientific theory and technological innovation throughout his writings. This book studies his blending of Gothic subjects with emerging discoveries in science and technology. The volume begins with

"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
