Resurrected: Dracula author Bram Stoker's first attempts at Gothic horror

Resurrected: Dracula author Bram Stoker's first attempts at Gothic horror | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it
For more than a hundred years the name Count Dracula has struck a chill into the hearts of readers. The original Bram Stoker novel has spawned countless imitation stories and a rich tradition of vampire films that still thrill audiences today.

Now, in the centenary year of the author's death, a discovery of lost work by him has shed fresh light on a great horror masterpiece. An American author has unearthed writings by the Irish novelist that were published more than a century ago in periodicals that have long since disappeared, some of which give new insights into his 1897 story of the bloodsucking count.

Steampunk and the Frankenstein Meme

Steampunk and the Frankenstein Meme | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it

My current research interest has taken me far afield from my original scope of Steampunk and solidly into Gothic Territory.  I am speaking, of course, about Frankenstein.  I have realised that the relationship between Mary Shelley’s horror novel and the breathing NeoVictorian Subculture have more in common than may meet the eye at first glance.  But first a detour to yet another subject: memetics.

Inaugural Post: Steampunk and the Gothic | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it

So where’s the Gothic?  Originally, I found it in Steampunk when looking at the chronological, subcultural predecessors.  It was a simple jump from Steampunk, to Punk, to Gothic by way of Vivenne Westwood and Siouxsie and the Banshees.
