Reading Dracula Again, For the First Time: review of Bram Stoker's Dracula (Article) - 6/14/2009 9:40:31 AM
Frank, I have read Dracula more times than I can count since I was a young girl. I am trying to think if you are also dissing the book because of the use of language of the time - it is a Gothic novel, and melodrama - in journal form. I read your entire article, and the spirit of the book is to see through the eyes of most of its characters the same actions and melodrama can be 'cheezy' - but look at your basic soap operas that have been on the air for years - are they brilliant television???? brilliant language?
Probably one of the coolest books of its time and frightening if you wave the London fog and see - Dracula bringing his wives bags of babies to consume - the 'bloofer' lady (beautiful) lady Lucy - who comes to the young to feed - even the ending - it is an amazing book that no one has really replicated for its originality and subject matter.
If you have ever seen Francis Ford Coppolla's Bram Stoker's Dracula, you will see probably one of truest versions of the book. Although it was terribly miscast.
Coppolla's 'view' of Dracula as a demon, I didn't care for, but Gary Oldman was a good choice for Dracula -
His interpretation of the creation of Dracula was brilliant - and the redemption - was a wow!
You have to have fun with Dracula - envision yourself 100+ years ago and reading it in a darkened room lit by candlelight and a roaring fire during a storm...
Wishing you great reading -
