''To die, to be really dead, that would be glorious.'' ---Dracula
Why would it be glorious to be really dead? What message was Bram Stoker trying to tell us in his tales of Dracula? One of the darkest tales ever to emerge from the mind of man is the story of the arch-Vampire, Dracula. It took Bram Stoker more than seven years to unravel and re-tell the history and mystery of this ancient myth. In all this time he must have uncovered more than just a simple horror story.
This work investigates Bram Stoker, his life, his friends, his associations and in so doing we find clues to the real truth behind the tale of Dracula. We enter the dark world of the vampire, its past, present and future. We delve into the dark recesses within the mind of man and come away with mysteries only guessed at in each age. We discover that to be dead, really dead, is indeed glorious.
