4.0 out of 5 stars The story of a vampire-beast, 20 Dec. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Dracula (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
This is the first novel on vampires and their existence in the folklore of Rumania. Written by Bram Stocker in 1897 it is a vivid story of the dark forces, the forces of evil that so much are discussed in our times. Count Dracula is the undead itself representing a plague that takes the lifes of the innocent leaving their souls damned to live in the night. The undead drink the blood of their victims so as to live theirselves and this picture is the one that this novel describes. Written in the way diaries are written it begins on the 3d of May, we don't know the year and ends on the 6th of November. The surroundings are those of the gothic novel. Castles and grotesque air of the places that it takes place. Transylvania in Rumania and 19th century London that are dominated by the undead count and his whereabouts. Long night descriptions and a group of people trying to save the beautiful Mina who the count is trying to turn into his bride. It is no strange the fact that it has been the original that so many times it was shot in film, most of the times though unsuccessfully, beacuse in the journals of the 15th century and forth the story of vampires drinking blood was a story so many times told and written. A nice book for the fans of gothic literature and those that are fascinated by the grotesque.
