A true masterwork of storytelling, <i>Dracula</i> has transcended generation, language, and culture to become one of the most popular novels ever written. It is a quintessential tale of suspense and horror, boasting one of the most terrifying characters ever born in literature: Count Dracula, a tragic, night-dwelling specter who feeds upon the blood of the living, and whose diabolical passions prey upon the innocent, the helpless, and the beautiful. But <i>Dracula</i> also stands as a bleak allegorical saga of an eternally cursed being whose nocturnal atrocities reflect the dark underside of the supremely moralistic age in which it was originally written -- and the corrupt desires that continue to plague the modern human condition. <br> Pocket Books Enriched Classics present the great works of world literature enhanced for the contemporary reader. This edition of <i>Dracula</i> was prepared by Joseph Valente, Professor of English at the University of Illinois and the author of <i>Dracula's Crypt: Bram Stoker, Irishness, and the Question of Blood,</i> who provides insight into the racial connotations of this enduring masterpiece.
