Description

Jonathan Harker viaja a Transilvania para cerrar un negocio inmobiliario con un misterioso conde que acaba de comprar varias propiedades en Londres. Después de un viaje preñado de ominosas señales, Harker es recogido por un siniestro carruaje que le lleva, acunado por el canto de los lobos, a un castillo en ruinas. Tal es el inquietante principio de una novela magistral que alumbró uno de los mitos más populares y poderosos de todos los tiempos: Drácula. La fuerza del personaje —del que el cine se adueñó hasta la saciedad— ha eclipsado a lo largo de los años la calidad, la originalidad y la rareza de la obra de Bram Stoker, sin duda una de las últimas y más estremecedoras aportaciones a la literatura gótica. Drácula, el muerto viviente, reina en la noche y busca a sus víctimas para beber su sangre. Espía los sueños, aparece en cualquier lugar y ejerce una diabólica fascinación —el conde Drácula es, sin duda, un fenómeno inmortal.




About the Author
Abraham (Bram) Stoker was an Irish writer, best known for his Gothic classic Dracula, which continues to influence horror writers and fans more than 100 years after it was first published. Educated at Trinity College, Dublin, in science, mathematics, oratory, history, and composition, Stoker' s writing was greatly influenced by his father' s interest in theatre and his mother' s gruesome stories about her childhood during the cholera epidemic in 1832. Although a published author of the novels Dracula, The Lady of the Shroud, and The Lair of the White Worm, and his work as part of the literary staff of The London Daily Telegraph, Stoker made his living as the personal assistant of actor Henry Irving and the business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London. Stoker died in 1912, leaving behind one of the most memorable horror characters ever created.
