Ce qui est intéressant ici, ce n'est pas tant l'histoire (que nous connaissons tous) mais de redécouvrir le livre en lui-même, son "patchwork" de journaux intimes, de coupes de presse... Et les dossiers aussi, sont vraiment là pour vous aider à comprendre pourquoi ce livre à été une critique avisé du monde Victorien.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Full-Featured Critical Edition for Fans and Students. 16 octobre 2004
Par mirasreviews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I'll comment on the features of the Norton Critical Edition of "Dracula", as reviews of the novel can be found elsewhere. The novel, itself, is reproduced from the 1897 British edition that was published by Archbald Constable and Company and is preceded by a short but useful Preface that discusses the contexts in which "Dracula" was written and received over a century ago. The text of the novel is amply footnoted. Not only are terms defined, but allusions are explained, and passages of particular interest are treated with some commentary. The footnotes are worthwhile, but easy to ignore if you prefer. I had reservations about the footnotes in the early chapters of the book. Too many of them referred to points later in the story, acting as minor spoilers. I found this stopped after the action moved to England, so it only applies to a small portion of the book. Following the text of the novel are sections on Contexts, Reviews and Reactions, Dramatic and Film Variations, and Criticism.

"Contexts" includes some 19th century source material on vampires, Bram Stoker's working papers for the novel annotated by Christopher Frayling, and "Dracula's Guest", which was originally to be the novel's opening chapter, before Bram Stoker decided to situate the novel in Transylvania. The working papers are thoroughly uninteresting, and "Dracula's Guest" is not as chilling as the introduction that replaced it. "Reviews and Reactions" includes 5 reviews of the novel written shortly after it was published, in 1897 and in 1899, three of which are favorable.

"Dramatic and Film Variations" contains an essay about "Dracula"'s theatrical adaptations, including a list of major plays, by David J. Skal, who wrote "Hollywood Gothic: The Tangled Web of Dracula from Novel to Stage to Screen" and is one of this edition's editors. An essay by Gregory Waller discusses Tod Browning's 1931 film "Dracula". Editor Nina Auerbach gives "Dracula" a feminist reading in her essay about the later film adaptations of the novel: the Hammer films of the 1950s and 1960s and John Badham's 1979 film. There is also a list of major film adaptations.

"Criticism" includes 7 essays that represent widely varying interpretations of Bram Stoker's novel, including Oedipal, Marxist, sexual, gender reversal, xenophobic, and homoerotic interpretations. These essays vary in quality a great deal. The best, in my view, are Christopher Craft's "Gender and Inversion" and Stephen D. Arata's "Reverse Colonization" essays. But, taken together, all of the essays give insight into "Dracula"s continuing -in fact, ever-growing- popularity. The novel can be interpreted through virtually any doctrine. There is a chronology of events in Bram Stoker's life at the end of the book.

If you plan to purchase a copy of "Dracula", this Norton Critical Edition provides the most material for your buck and the best footnotes that I've seen in any edition currently in print.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 ONE OF THE BEST EDITIONS OF THE NOVEL 14 juillet 2001
Par rene@centroweb.net - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Everything I've read in the Norton Critical Editions is always very good. It of course includes the text of the work, usually complete (Herodotus was an exception). But most useful is a selection of critical opinion over time so that the reader is able to compare his own evaluation with that of others. And it is amazing what a non-professional (like me, in the field of literature) misses and how professional critics can deepen understanding. But read the novel first, and then the critics.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Original Vamp 7 septembre 2000
Par Kellyannl - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is the horror novel that launched a thousand vampires.
Actually, it's not really a novel - it's a collection of letters. Two women, best friends Mina and Lucy, are happily sharing their love lives with eachother on paper. Mina is about to marry her beau Jonathan Harker; and Lucy is trying to choose between Dr. Arthur Seward and Quincey Morris, true-blue good guys both. Suddenly, a stranger from Transylvania comes to town and Lucy becomes gravely ill. Seward writes to his mentor, Dr. Van Helsing for help. The good doctor does indeed know what they're dealing with, but he's too late to save Lucy. The group barely has time to grieve before strange things start happening, and by the time they realize that the stranger,Dracula, is in fact a vampire, he's set his malevolent eye on Mina...
Some people find the letters tedious, and that there's far less of Drac around than they'd expected - but try to read them as if you also don't know what he is yet. The "news clipping" about the Ghost-ship's arrival from Transylvania, for example, is still chilling - and the final chase scene, in which the friends lose one of their own, still packs an emotional and adrenaline punch.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Bram Stoker's Dracula: A Parable For Our Times 26 septembre 2008
Par alldayReader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Book Groups of America, put down your Oprah choices, your Eat, Pray, and Love drivel, your watered elephants, and read Bram Stoker's Dracula. I wanted to read some long books before my book-a-day project begins and Dracula was on the list of recommended must-reads. My son's English teacher was right, everyone should read this book.

I finished Dracula last night after midnight. WIth a shiver I went off to bed and I dreamt of mist coming in under doors, bats beating against windows, garlic flowers and golden crucifixes. This novel is a really great read and ten million times better than any movie version ever made. The novel is deep and dense and scarily engaging, with compelling characters, great atmosphere, and a plot that teases thrillingly; Evil approaches, then withdraws, moves forward and is then pushed back again, if only until the sun sets and enabling darkness again descends.

The novel reads like the metaphor used often by its characters: a chess match. The match is between Evil (Count Dracula and his lovely undead) and Good (Mina and Jonathan Harker, Dr. Seward, Professor Van Helsing, Lord Godalming and the brave American, Quincey Morris); the pawns include the lunatic Renfield and the lovely and beloved virgin Lucy Westerna, as well as many other minor characters dragged nefariously into Dracula's plot to infiltrate London.

Clearly the novel is about temptations of the Devil being finally vanquished by the deep and intensely held faith of the righteous in their God: eternal life as offered by Count Dracula is spurned in favor of eternal paradise as offered by God.

But the novel is also an appropriate, and apropos, parable about greed. Count Dracula is not satisfied with living only one life; he wants to live the durations of a hundreds of lives. His greed grows and grows, and he feeds on the blood of the oppressed to further power his driving ambition. Greed begets greed and Evil begets evil. There is no end in sight until the forces of Good combine their faculties of intelligence, observation, and action to overcome the Evil and save the world from greed gone wild. As a political commentary, Dracula is frighteningly astute (and makes a sound argument for a much-needed third party in this country, the intelligent, observant reformer party).

Each character in the novel is well-defined and individually presented, each character grows and changes through the course of the novel; there is no stereotyping or predictability (even in Count Dracula). The heroine, Mina Parker, is viewed by the other characters through the lens of sexism but she is presented by Bram Stoker as intelligent, tenacious, and brave; she is never hysterically brave or mother-protecting-her-young brave, as so many movies and novels portray female bravery, but is wisely and timely brave.

The plot moves forward through letters, journal entries, and stenographic recordings, all from the point of view of the various forces of Good; our unease grows into fear as we catch clues that our braver heroes miss. I stayed up way too late to reassure myself that in the end the clues were caught, interpreted, and used to solve the mystery of where and how to catch the vampire villain. Count Dracula is finally brought down (I don't think I'm ruining it for anyone) through such diverse means as hypnotism, detailed knowledge of train schedules, buying of drinks for information (tipping for tippling), and of course, garlic, the sacred communial wafer, golden crucifixes, and the stake through the heart. There are also plenty of wolves, bats, mists, spiders, superstitious (quite rightly so) Roumanians, and long moon-lit nights.

Read this book. For more great book recommendations, visit readallday.org.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Often imitated "Dracula" is still THE book about vampires 15 juillet 2001
Par AmazingMrKimble - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
"Dracula" is not a great novel, it is just a great story. Stoker's device of trying to let all of the characters tell their own story in the first person gets a bit trite after a while, but what is important here is that he sets the rules for what everybody knows about vampires. The first half of the book, while the Count entertains Jonathan Harker and first comes to London and preys upon Lucy and Mina, is the best part of the book. The final chase and staking of Dracula ends up being somewhat anticlimatic. Still, I think this book reads better than "Frankenstein." Oh, and I do know enough about science to recognize that someone drained of blood cannot receive a transfusion from everybody. A minor error given the times, but it still makes me smile. "Dracula" remains the standard by which Anne Rice and the rest who have followed in his footsteps are necessarily judged.
