he 1897 Gothic horror novel Dracula was the pioneer in steering various
narratives on vampires. Bram Stoker's Count Dracula continues to evoke
the creative fantasies of many artists working across theatre, cinema and
television. The latter mediums have played a significant role in the novel's
success in the twentieth and the twenty-first century. The novel chronicles the
battle between Count Dracula and a small group of people led by Professor
Abraham Van Helsing as the former attempts to move to England from
Transylvania, where he wreaked havoc for hundreds of years.
An epistolary novel, Dracula's narrative unfolds through a series of letters,
diary entries, newspaper articles and telegrams.
