Bram Stoker's initial notes and outlines for his landmark horror novel Dracula were auctioned at Sotheby's in London in 1913 and eventually made their way to the Rosenbach Museum and Library in Philadelphia, where they are housed today. Until now, few of the 124 pages have been transcribed or analyzed. This painstaking work reproduces the handwritten notes both in facsimile and in annotated transcription. It also includes Stoker's typewritten research notes and thoroughly analyzes all of the materials, which range from Stoker's thoughts on the novel's characters and settings to a nine-page calendar of events that includes most of the now-familiar story. Ample annotations guide readers through the construction of the novel and the changes that were made to its structure, plot, setting and characters. Nine appendices provide insight into Stoker's personal life, his other works and his early literary influences.

Includes the short story “Dracula’s Guest,” thought to be the omitted first chapter of Dracula. Dracula is Bram Stoker’s classic gothic tale of Count Dracula, one of the most famous characters ever created in fiction, his relationship with Jonathan and Mina Harker, pursuit by Professor van Helsing and ultimate destruction in the name of love. Intent on immigrating to England, Count Dracula enlists the services of Jonathan Harker to arrange the purchase of a suitable residence. Intrigued by the young Harker and his beautiful wife, Mina, Dracula sets in motion a series of events that threatens the sanity of all. Recognized today as a horror classic, at the time of its publication in 1897 Dracula touched on and challenged such contemporary themes as the role of women in Victorian England, sexual conventions, and colonialism. Using historical and regional folklore as a basis, Stoker defined the modern vampire, and his definition continues to influence current depictions of vampires across all forms of media. Widely believed to be the deleted first chapter of Dracula, “Dracula’s Guest,” taken from Bram Stoker’s collection of short stories, follows an Englishman, presumed to be Jonathan Harker, on a visit to Munich en route to Transylvania. Despite warnings from his hotelier, the Englishman leaves the safety of his carriage and wanders towards an abandoned “unholy” village. “Dracula’s Guest” was originally published and introduced as the “excised chapter” in Dracula’s Guest and Other Weird Stories by Stoker’s widow, Florence. HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.
