Reviews

"Bram Stoker's Dracula is an essential guide to criticism of Stoker's novel and provides an astute and critically subtle reading of the novel's complexities. However, it is also much more than that because Hughes's skilful location of Dracula within its literary, cultural, and historical contexts makes us think again about how we approach late Victorian fiction. Scholarly, clear and concise this book makes a significant contribution to how we understand Dracula and its complex Gothic contexts." - Professor Andrew Smith, University of Glamorgan, UK.
"Hughes's guide provides just about anything a reader might wish to know about Stoker's famous novel. Connections bonding Dracula with Stoker's other writings are assessed. Issues of Medicine, Religion, Sex, Gothicism, Gender are covered; useful editions of the novel, stage-film adaptations and critical commentaries are cited. The presentation is convincing. I predict a long shelf life." - Professor Benjamin F. Fisher, Department of English, University of Mississippi, USA.
