Dracula is a unique horror masterpiece and the most famous of all vampire tales.
Few readers will ever forget the nightmare atmosphere of Count Dracula\'s sinister castle in Transylvania, the prowlings of the Un-dead, the blood-curdling tension as Bram Stoker\'s tale races towards a thrilling climax.
Dracula recounts the struggle of a group of men and a woman - Dr Seward, Dr Van Helsing and Jonathan Harker and his wife Mina - to destroy the vampire, whose sinister earth-filled coffins are discovered by Harker in a ruined chapel adjoining Dr Seward\'s asylum. Cruel and noble, evilly and fatally desirable to women, Dracula possesses a terrifying lust for power and, like Dr Jekyll or Conan Doyle\'s Moriarty, is one of the immortal fictional monsters.
Through this powerfully retold version, students have an opportunity to read one of the most famous horror stories ever devised.
