HASH(0x9aac9558) von 5 Sternen Most Thoroughly Annotated Edition Currently In Print. 9. November 2004
Von mirasreviews - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
"The Essential Dracula" is the latest edition of "Dracula" to be annotated with copious footnotes by renowned "Dracula" scholar Leonard Wolf. In 1975, Wolf published the first thoroughly annotated edition of the novel, called, appropriately, "The Annotated Dracula". "The Essential Dracula" has retained and augmented the thousands of comments and explanations offered in that book, but lacks "The Annotated Dracula"'s more than 100 illustrations, most notably full-page artwork by the artist Sätty. Instead, the artwork of Christopher Bing introduces each chapter in "The Essential Dracula". There are also small illustrations scattered throughout, but "The Essential Dracula"'s illustrations are more decoration than material. Don't be misled by the blurb from Ingram on the back cover that oddly refers to the 1975 edition's "100 photos, maps, and drawings", not to this edition. Comments on "Dracula" by 19 writers and artists are an interesting addition between the chapters. Leonard Wolf or his publisher have perfectly chosen a handsome, modern, black and red cover to announce this novel's arrival in the 21st century.

Leonard Wolf's copious footnotes provide the reader with an ongoing lesson in social history. He addresses every imaginable allusion in the text, sometimes with short essays. The notes are more elaborate and cover a broader variety of subjects than the footnotes in the Norton Critical Edition of "Dracula". Some intriguing notes include: recipes for the Romanian dishes on which Jonathan Harker dines, population demographics for Transylvania in the late 19th century, translations of old Mr. Swales' dialect, explanations of Victorian figures of speech, and the particulars of Victorian typewriters that Mina employs so frequently. Leonard Wolf's annotations are blessing to "Dracula" fans. My only reservation about them is that the notes in "The Essential Dracula" cannot be easily read. Unlike its predecessor "The Annotated Dracula", which placed its sizable notes in the margins, "The Essential Dracula"'s notes are truly footnotes. They are written in a miniscule font at the bottom of the pages. One cannot simply peruse the notes, as I so enjoy with "The Annotated Dracula". It is too difficult to determine what text is being referenced. So you really do have to read these notes as you read the novel, which I find impractical and not as enjoyable as studying them later.

"The Essential Dracula" offers 3 Appendices. Appendix A is the legendary and entirely superfluous deleted first chapter of "Dracula", entitled "Dracula's Guest". Appendix B provides a selected Dracula filmography and a list of notable theatrical dramatizations. The filmography includes title, alternative title, director, studio, country, and leading performers for 71 Dracula films, 1920-1992, that feature Count Dracula but are not necessarily based on Bram Stoker's novel. Appendix C is a bibliography.

HASH(0x9aac95ac) von 5 Sternen A must for serious fans 14. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
While this exhaustively (at times exhaustingly) annotated book may overwhelm the reader coming to Stoker's novel for the first time, those who are past reading for the plot alone will definitely appreciate Wolf's additions, which include detailed footnotes on everything from the train schedules to literary allusions to inconsistencies in continuity. Most chapters feature brief articles by modern fantasy writers, who comment on the novel's influence in their lives and writing. The filmography and introduction are excellent. Those who enjoy looking at the fine details will certainly appreciate this scrupulously researched book.

HASH(0x9aac9780) von 5 Sternen An Open Door For The Curious Mind 8. November 2000
Von Kenneth Theimer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This is far and away the best edition of the original novel you could read. In addition all it's footnotes and explanations provide a trail for any curious reader to explore for just about any particular aspect of the novel. From legends of Vampires, historical facts of Vlad Dracul III, all the way to obscure but curious details of the lendary Scholomance School Of Magic taught by the Devil himself!

HASH(0x9aac9db0) von 5 Sternen Absolute best version for study or pleasure reading! 11. Oktober 2013
Von Suzanne - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I teach Advanced Placement Literature and Composition at the high school level and this book is my go-to for not only Dracula, but for an example of what an annotated text can be! There are so many references that the reader might never even know he/she had missed without these alternatingly insightful, humorous and historical annotations. I am so sad this version is out of print, as (in my humble opinion) this should be the premier version available at any book store. HIGHLY recommend!

HASH(0x9aac9d5c) von 5 Sternen Rich edition of the classic novel 13. Dezember 2012
Von James R. Gilligan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
With this--probably my second or third--reading of "Dracula," certain surprising aspects of the novel (which would elude most first-time readers) became glaringly apparent to me. I will forego a summary of the plot, since the tale is almost universally known. Instead, I'll simply identify those aspects of the novel that seem to go unrecognized in the wake of its legacy and undeniable impact on the horror genre and our culture's insatiable fascination with vampires. First of all, the narrative structure of "Dracula," despite its being a conventional Victorian romance, is quite postmodern--the titular character is, in fact, the antagonist of the story rather than the protagonist; the tale is told from the perspectives of numerous narrators, and this poly-vocal, cobbled-together story features numerous narrative voices (none more annoying than Van Helsing's convoluted and at times unintelligibly purple prose) and genres (diaries, letters, newspaper stories). And, shockingly, the conclusion of the novel deconstructs the entirety of the narrative that has preceded it. Jonathan Harker writes:

"We were struck with the fact, that in all the mass of material of which the record is composed, there is hardly one authentic document; nothing but a mass of type-writing, except the later note-books of Mina and Seward and myself, and Van Helsing's memorandum. We could hardly ask any one, even did we wish to, to accept these as proofs of so wild a story." (pp. 444-445)

This edition is particularly rich and rewarding for readers who are returning to "Dracula" for subsequent readings. Leonard Wolf's introduction and his abundant footnotes enrich the tale and supplement the story in a highly entertaining fashion. It's like reading the novel with a literary tour guide looking over your shoulder and making sure you don't miss any point of interest.

Ultimately, a careful rereading of "Dracula" reveals just how little it contains of what we now consider conventional about the vampire myth. The "horror" it contains is also quite tame--much of the terror throughout the novel is masterfully implied rather than blatant, and Dracula himself is hardly even present for the majority of the action. "Dracula" is indeed a classic--one that rewards rereadings, reconsideration, and constant review.
