德拉库拉 (小说)

Novel, Gothic fiction by 布莱姆·斯托克

Blurb

《德拉库拉》是爱尔兰作家布拉姆·斯托克于1897年出版的以吸血鬼为题材的哥特式恐怖小说。
这部小说以15世纪时瓦拉几亚的领主弗拉德三世为原型创做的。小说中的主人公德拉库拉有别于以往古代神话和传说中的吸血鬼丑陋、没有智力的动物形象,作者将吸血鬼描绘成文质彬彬、聪明、具有吸引异性魅力,能够控制受害人的思想的绅士。这本小说的成功和流行使得德拉库拉成为吸血鬼的代名词。这本书和另一本关于吸血鬼的小说《Carmilla》一起成为吸血鬼文化的经典小说。

I enjoyed this book immensely, and can really see why it is named as a classic! Many ‘classic’ novels, I can’t see the worth of, but this one was different. A lot goes on in this story, including vampirism, bug-eating, and there is the famous Dr. Van Helsing! It’s a very typical Victorian novel, with a lot of honour and protection directed towards women, and groups of men acting together and being manly. Although I really enjoyed the book and would read it again, I found the ending a little anticlimactic. Of course, I don’t want to spoil the ending for you :)
