Who Was Dracula's Father?

Who Was Dracula's Father?

By John Sutherland



When it was first published in 1897 - 120 years ago - Irish author Bram Stoker's Dracula was ranked by the Daily Mail above work by Mary Shelley and Edgar Allan Poe, as well as Wuthering Heights . Yet it never made Stoker any money. Since 1931's film Nosferatu the Vampire , however, it has never been out of print and is legendary among fans of the dark, macabre and mysterious . Critic John Sutherland, a Dracula fan since childhood - and author of the literary puzzle classics Is Heathcliff a Murderer? and Can Jane Eyre be Happy? explores the enigmas and puzzles of this towering giant of gothic novels, such as: Who was Dracula's father? Why does the Count come to England? Does the Count actually give Jonathan a 'love bite'? Why does every country we know of have a vampire legend? And finally - how long is it before we're all vampires? The book also includes 'Dracula Digested' by John Crace, author of the Guardian 's Digested Reads column.
