Description

This Norton Critical Edition includes:

  • The first edition of the novel, published by Archibald Constable in London in 1897 and chosen by the editors in order to give readers-insofar as such a thing is possible-a more historically authentic reading experience than has been generally available. Arcane words and usages are footnoted at first appearance.
  • Editorial matter by John Edgar Browning and David J. Skal.
  • Eight background pieces, five of them new to the Second Edition, on Count Dracula specifically and vampires more generally; seven reviews and reactions to Dracula 's publication, five of them new to the Second Edition; and six selections, two of them new to and two others updated for the Second Edition, on Dracula's many dramatic and filmic variations.
  • Eleven critical essays on Dracula 's central themes, six of them new to the Second Edition.
  • A selected bibliography.
