Bram Stoker's Dracula is the most famous vampire in literature and film.

This new collection of sixteen essays brings together a range of internationally renowned scholars to provide a series of pathways through this celebrated Gothic novel and its innumerable adaptations and translations.

The volume illuminates the novel's various pre-histories, critical contexts and subsequent cultural transformations.

Chapters explore literary history, Gothic revival scholarship, folklore, anthropology, psychology, sexology, philosophy, occultism, cultural history, critical race theory, theatre and film history, and the place of the vampire in Europe and beyond.

These studies provide an accessible guide of cutting-edge scholarship to one of the most celebrated modern Gothic horror stories.

This Companion will serve as a key resource for scholars, teachers and students interested in the enduring force of Dracula and the seemingly inexhaustible range of the contexts it requires and readings it might generate.
