Stoker: Dracula

In this course, Professor David Punter (University of Bristol) explores Bram Stoker’s 1897 Gothic horror novel, Dracula. As we move through the course, we think about the centrality of blood to the novel (both literally and figuratively), the socio-political issues at stake in the novel, including the issue of equality, as well the impact of technology on society and culture.

Dracula and Blood

In this module, we think about the centrality of blood in the novel, both literally (as the thing that Dracula drinks to stay alive) and figuratively (with the meaning ‘family’, ‘dynasty’, ‘bloodline’).
