Jonathan Harker, an English solicitor, visits Transylvania, Romania, to help Dracula, a local count, buy a house in London. It does not take him long to find out that his client is a vampire. Harker escapes. Dracula, anyhow, reaches England and, then, begins a series of uncanny occurrences of a new kind, never experienced by English people. Told through letters, diary notes and articles, Dracula is a quintessential work of horror fiction. The only criticism it receives is for its too much gothic content. Recently, it has also been commended for its symbolism of the horrors of suppressed sexuality and desire in the Victorian Age. It has been made into films on more than thirty occasions.
