Draculas, Vampires, and Other Undead Forms : Essays on Gender, Race and Culture Hardback
Edited by John Edgar Browning, Caroline Joan (Kay) Picart
This provocative assembly of essays examines Dracula films and their movement across borders of nationality, sexuality, ethnicity, gender, and genre since the 1920s.
The essays analyze the complexity Dracula embodies outside the conventional landscape of films with which the vampire is typically associated.
Focusing on Dracula and Dracula-type characters in film, anime, and literature from predominantly non-Anglo markets, this anthology offers unique perspectives that seek to ground depictions and experiences of Dracula within a larger political, historical, and cultural framework.
