The Land Beyond the Forest: Facts, Figures, and Fancies from Transylvania

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Feb 17, 2011 - Literary Criticism - 402 pages
Novelist Emily Gerard (1849-1905) went with her husband, an officer in the Austrian army, to Transylvania for two years in 1883. Then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, today a region of western Romania, Transylvania was little known to readers back in England. In the years following, she wrote this full-length account (published in 1888) as well as several articles on the region, which Bram Stoker used when researching the setting for Dracula. She describes encounters with the different nationalities that made up the Transylvanian people: Romanians, Saxons and gypsies. Full of startling anecdotes and written in a novelistic style, her work combines her personal recollections with a detailed account of the landscape and people. The second volume covers the gypsy and Jewish populations, as well as Gerard's mixed feelings on leaving the country.
