HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. 'Do you not know that tonight, when the clock strikes midnight, all the evil things in the world will have full sway?' When solicitor Jonathan Harker arrives in Transylvania to organise the estate of a mysterious client, his growing uneasiness quickly turns into terror. Count Dracula has something more monstrous in mind and Jonathan finds himself trapped, a prisoner in a castle of horrors. Soon after, a darkness sweeps across the seas to England: Lucy Westenra begins to suffer from night-time wanderings, followed by a set of unexplained bitemarks, and a series of disturbing deaths captures the attention of vampire hunter, Van Helsing. A nineteenth-century Gothic triumph that explores the deep-seated anxieties and fears of Victorian society, Bram Stoker's Dracula remains as chilling today as it was at its time of publication.

Dracula's Guest (1914) is a collection of short stories by Irish author Bram Stoker. Edited and published by Florence, the author's wife, following Stoker's death only two years prior, Dracula's Guest helped to establish the Irish master of Gothic horror's reputation as a leading writer of the early-twentieth century. In "Dracula's Guest," an unnamed Englishman journeys by carriage into the countryside from his hotel in Munich to take in some of the local scenery. On the journey, his driver warns him of the dangers of Walpurgis Night only hours away, a time in which demons and ghosts are rumored to roam the land. Stopping near an abandoned village, the Englishman ignores his driver's unease and, sending the carriage back to Munich, makes his way into the hills alone. Lost in the dark, a sudden appearance of moonlight reveals his eerie surroundings-a dark and dreary cemetery. As a storm abruptly begins, he takes shelter in the doorway of a tomb, accidentally disturbing the entrance to reveal, at its center, the body of a beautiful, sleeping woman. In "The Judge's House," a scholar on holiday in a seaside town spends the night in a mysterious home, despite the warnings of locals who beg him not to stay at such a place. Dracula's Guest compiles nine works of short fiction by Bram Stoker, the secretive and vastly underrated creator of Dracula, one of history's greatest villains. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Bram Stoker's Dracula's Guest is a classic of Irish literature reimagined for modern readers.

The Lair of the White Worm (1911) is a novel by Irish author Bram Stoker. Published only a year before Stoker's death, The Lair of the White Worm helped to establish the Irish master of Gothic horror's reputation as a leading writer of the early-twentieth century. The novel is partly based on the legend of the Lambton Worm, a story from popular English folklore dating back to at least the 14th century. In 1860, an Australian named Adam Salton is contacted by his great-uncle, who invites him to make a visit to England. Arriving by boat in Southampton, Salton is greeted by the elderly Richard, who surprisingly names him heir of the family estate in Derbyshire. When he gets to Lesser Hill, he is quickly overwhelmed by terrifying and mysterious events. His neighbor, Edgar Cawall, is a strange man obsessed with mesmerism and protecting his crops from pigeons. At his own estate, Salton is forced to use mongooses to combat an infestation of black snakes. Meanwhile, a local woman named Arabella March appears to be involved in a series of strange disappearances rumored to have something to do with the legendary White Worm, an ancient creature haunting the landscape of rural Derbyshire. The Lair of the White Worm is a gripping work of Gothic horror by Bram Stoker, the secretive and vastly underrated creator of Dracula, one of history's greatest villains. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Bram Stoker's The Lair of the White Worm is a classic of Irish literature reimagined for modern readers.

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. 'We are in Transylvania; and Transylvania is not England. Our ways are not your ways, and there shall be to you many strange things.' Earnest and naive solicitor Jonathan Harker travels to Transylvania to organise the estate of the infamous Count Dracula at his crumbling castle in the ominous Carpathian Mountains. Through notes and diary entries, Harker keeps track of the horrors and terrors that beset him at the castle, telling his fiance Mina of the Count's supernatural powers and his own imprisonment. Although Harker eventually manages to escape and reunite with Mina, his experiences have led to a mental breakdown of sorts. Meanwhile in England, Mina's friend Lucy has been bitten and begins to turn into a vampire. With the help of Professor Van Helsing, a previous suitor of Lucy's, Seward, and Lucy's fiance Holmwood attempt to thwart Count Dracula and his attempts on Lucy and consequently Mina's life. Arguably the most enduring Gothic novel of the 19th Century, Bram Stoker's Dracula is as chilling today in its depiction of the vampire world and its exploration of Victorian values as it was at its time of publication.

Undaunted, Rupert travels to the Land of the Blue Mountains, where he befriends the local peasantry by purchasing them a stockpile of weapons with which to defend themselves from an impending Turkish invasion. One night, however, in the middle of a violent storm, he discovers a strange woman who seems to have wandered into the castle seeking warmth. She continues to visit, and, despite suspecting her to be a vampire, Saint Leger falls in love with the mysterious woman. When a group of soldiers kidnaps her, however, he finds himself caught between romance and a quickly escalating conflict involving a local warlord and an invading Turkish army. The Lady of the Shroud is a work of adventure and Gothic horror that explores the rich history and ancient mythology of the Balkan peninsula. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Bram Stoker's The Lady of the Shroud is a classic of Irish literature reimagined for modern readers.

Introduction and Notes by Dr David Rogers, Kingston University. 'There he lay looking as if youth had been half-renewed, for the white hair and moustache were changed to dark iron-grey, the cheeks were fuller, and the white skin seemed ruby-red underneath; the mouth was redder than ever, for on the lips were gouts of fresh blood, which trickled from the corners of the mouth and ran over the chin and neck. Even the deep, burning eyes seemed set amongst the swollen flesh, for the lids and pouches underneath were bloated. It seemed as if the whole awful creature were simply gorged with blood; he lay like a filthy leech, exhausted with his repletion.' Thus Bram Stoker, one of the greatest exponents of the supernatural narrative, describes the demonic subject of his chilling masterpiece Dracula, a truly iconic and unsettling tale of vampirism.

A true masterwork of storytelling, Dracula 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 Dracula 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.

Pocket Books Enriched Classics present the great works of world literature enhanced for the contemporary reader. This edition of Dracula was prepared by Joseph Valente, Professor of English at the University of Illinois and the author of Dracula's Crypt: Bram Stoker, Irishness, and the Question of Blood, who provides insight into the racial connotations of this enduring masterpiece.

R129 Discovery Miles 1 290 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The Primrose Path (1875) is the debut novel of Irish author Bram Stoker. Written over two decades before Dracula, his masterpiece, The Primrose Path helped to establish the Irish master of Gothic horror's reputation as a leading writer of the early-twentieth century. Inspired by the temperance movement, Stoker crafts a simple narrative about a man brought low through temptation and a lack of opportunity. Originally serialized in The Shamrock, a weekly magazine published in Ireland, The Primrose Path is a largely unrecognized novel that deserves reassessment by readers and academics alike. Jerry O'Sullivan is a good man who wants noting more to provide for his young wife in order to start a family. Looking for work as a theatrical carpenter, he moves from his native Dublin to the sprawling city of London, where he soon finds work and hopes to settle down. After a series of accidents, however, he grows distant from his wife Katey and falls victim to the temptations of alcohol. As he begins to lose control, he grows jealous, loses his job, and begins to harbor dangerous fantasies. Soon, despite his moral upbringing, he risks committing an act too heinous to imagine. The Primrose Path is a gripping work of horror and naturalism by Bram Stoker, the secretive and vastly underrated creator of Dracula, one of history's greatest villains. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Bram Stoker's The Primrose Path is a classic of Irish literature reimagined for modern readers.

The Gates of Life (1905), also published as The Man, is a novel by Irish author Bram Stoker. Written at the height of his career, The Gates of Life helped to establish the Irish master of Gothic horror's reputation as a leading writer of the early-twentieth century. Inspired by the archetype of the New Woman-a type of literary character incorporating elements of 19th century feminism-Stoker crafts a novel capable of captivating the reader while critiquing the constraints of class and gender on women and men of the early twentieth century. Following the death of his young wife in childbirth, Squire Stephen Norman promises to raise his daughter as his heir. Naming her Stephen, he encourages her to befriend the local boys and refuses to constrain her in the manner typical for young girls of the time. She grows up alongside Harold, who is taken in by Norman after his father's death from pneumonia. As the story unfolds, a romance develops between Stephen and Leonard, complicating Norman's wish for his daughter to marry Harold. Having promised Norman on his deathbed that he would look after Stephen, Harold is heartbroken when she proposes to Leonard, but he refuses to give up hope. As time and distance drive them apart, they will need more than ancient promises and memories of a shared childhood to unite them once again. The Gates of Life is a gripping work of romance by Bram Stoker, the secretive and vastly underrated creator of Dracula, one of history's greatest villains. >With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Bram Stoker's The Gates of Life is a classic of Irish literature reimagined for modern readers.

The Snake's Pass - A Critical Edition (Paperback, Critical edition): Bram Stoker The Snake's Pass - A Critical Edition (Paperback, Critical edition)
Bram Stoker; Edited by Lisabeth C. Buchelt; Introduction by Lisabeth C. Buchelt
R844 Discovery Miles 8 440 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

In 1890, The Snake's Pass was published in serialized form in the periodical The People. It is the story of Arthur Severn, an Englishman who has inherited wealth and a title through an aunt who took him under her wing to the exclusion of closer relations. His inheritance includes land in Ireland, and now that he is a man of leisure, he decides to tour the west of Ireland. As Bram Stoker's first full-length novel, The Snake's Pass is a heady blend of romance, travel narrative, adventure tale, folk tradition, and national tale. This early novel shows that, long before Dracula, Stoker used the genre of the novel to engage with questions of identity, gender, ethnic stereotype, and imperialism. In this critical edition, Buchelt offers detailed and studied insight into both the novel and Stoker's life, demonstrating the significance of The Snake's Pass within the canon of late Victorian literature. The supplementary textual notes, scholarly material, and critical responses enhance the novel without distracting from the text. Readers will find a complexly layered and nuanced work that presents a pointed critique of British cultural attitudes and political positions concerning the Irish and Ireland.
