This Norton Critical Edition includes:

The first edition of the novel, published by Archibald Constable in London in 1897 and chosen by the editors in order to give readers-insofar as such a thing is possible-a more historically authentic reading experience than has been generally available. Arcane words and usages are footnoted at first appearance.
Editorial matter by John Edgar Browning and David J. Skal.
Eight background pieces, five of them new to the Second Edition, on Count Dracula specifically and vampires more generally; seven reviews and reactions to Dracula’s publication, five of them new to the Second Edition; and six selections, two of them new to and two others updated for the Second Edition, on Dracula’s many dramatic and filmic variations.
Eleven critical essays on Dracula’s central themes, six of them new to the Second Edition.
A selected bibliography.

Publisher Review

"The notes in Dracula are exactly at the right level for students. The headnotes are extremely helpful. It really does [meet the needs of today's students]. It is my favorite NCE to teach." -- Carrie D. Shanafelt, Fairleigh Dickinson University
