Home » Levy Lecture Series Presents via Zoom: Megan Wells' presentation of Bram Stoker's Masterpiece, "Dracula"
Written in 1897, the Gothic horror novel tells the story of a solicitor, Jonathan Harker, who travels to Transylvania for a meeting with a new client, the nobleman Count Dracula. At the castle where Count Dracula lives, Harker is warned not to wander into certain rooms, a caution he ignores. He encounters three vampire women. Count Dracula rescues Harker from the women, but then abandons him as he leaves the castle to travel to England. Harker manages to evade the three women and escape the castle, but once outside, he collapses and is hospitalized with delirium.
Having arrived in England, Count Dracula begins to wreak havoc, destruction, and death among Harker's friends. He is pursued by the cunning physician and vampire hunter, Dr. Abraham Van Helsing. As Dracula becomes increasingly more desperate, he travels back to Transylvania, where the ultimate denouement occurs.
Bram Stoker wrote the novel in the epistolary style, using diary entries, articles, and letters. "Dracula" is considered one of the most significant pieces of English literature in the world, and it continues to inspire creative people to this day.
