About this book

Bram Stoker, Dracula and the Victorian Gothic Stage re-appraises Stoker's key fictions in relation to his working life. It takes Stoker's work from the margins to centre stage, exploring how Victorian theatre's melodramatic and Gothic productions influenced his writing and thinking.

Reviews

"Bram Stoker, Dracula and the Victorian Gothic Stage does an admirable job of placing Dracula in conversation with the literary Gothic, supernatural Gothic, and melodramatic drama on offer at Irving's Lyceum Royal Theatre. It also situates the novel in relation to the function of science, literature, and the theatre in "legitimixing brutality" towards women as a means of rehabilitating them." - Victorian Periodicals Review, 2015
