Dracula: The Irish Vampire

ID : 8864   
« back to classes page
Most people don't know that Abraham Stoker, an Irishman, wrote the novel that got the whole vampire craze started, Dracula.  We will read this original novel and look at the history both of vampire lore and of Ireland in Stoker's time.  Was Dracula a sly attack on the British response to The Great Famine?  Why are we so interested in (and scared of) the vampires in these stories?  What did people at the time think of them?  We will read Stoker's novel and other short vampire stories that predate this.  And we willl look at more recent incarnations of the monster in Francis Ford Coppola's misnamed movie, "Bram Stoker's Dracula" (1992).  (Garlic and crosses optional.)
