Dracula—The Allure of the Monster

Lecture no. 17 from the course: Heroes and Legends: The Most Influential Characters of Literature

Dracula—The Allure of the Monster

Taught by Professor Thomas A. Shippey | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

The 19th century produced a radically different kind of hero: the spooky and fantastical Dracula. After observing the structural complexity of this novel, you’ll examine the hidden fears and repressed sensuality that led Bram Stoker to create this vampire and his seductive brides. Then ponder Dracula’s lasting effect on world literature.
