Klinger brings the same impressive breadth of knowledge that distinguished The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes to this definitive examination of one of the classic horror novels of all time. Adopting the conceit that Stoker's narrative is based on fact, Klinger elucidates the plot and historical context for both Stoker devotees and those more familiar with Count Dracula from countless popular culture versions. Because he had privileged access to the typescript Stoker delivered to his publisher, Klinger is able to note changes between it and the first edition and comment on the reasons for them. Through close reading, Klinger raises questions about such matters as the role of lead vampire-hunter Van Helsing and whether the villainous count is actually dispatched at book's end. An introduction by Neil Gaiman, numerous illustrations, essays on topics ranging from Dracula in the movies to the academic response, and much more enhance the package.--Amazon.com

A great gorgeous lavish heavy tome. The annotations and appendices outweigh the actual text of the original 1897 Dracula novel. This book is actually more a work of scholarship (along the lines of a university textbook) than for general readers. Only a Dracula devotee would read the whole book, but it is fun to browse for those holding merely a casual interest in the subject.

This is an engageing version of the book, if filled with too many notes.
