Quotes from The New Annotated Dracula

Despair has its own calms.

We learn from failure, not from success!

This man belongs to me, I want him!

Good women tell all their lives, and by day and by hour and by minute, such things that angels can read.

Ah, it is the fault of our science that it wants to explain all; and if it explain not, then it says there is nothing to explain.

There are darknesses in life and there are lights, and you are one of the lights, the light of all lights.

Reviews of The New Annotated Dracula

Bram Stoker's Dracula...appears in an abridged edition with haunting pencil illustrations in gray and red that seem to mysteriously dissolve into the darkness. Glossy pages bordered in red, make the book look as if it has been dipped in blood, offering delectably spinetingling trappings to the classic tale.

It is plot as well as place and people that give Dracula longevity: Tóibín describes "a fierce clarity in the outline" and "in how events twist and turn". This "haunted work" was a conduit for ideas about the rational versus the unconscious being formulated by Freud.

Twilight's anaemic adolescent bloodsuckers look paler than ever next to the primal horror of Stoker's 1897 creation: a ruby-lipped ancient who corrupts the flower of Victorian womanhood, and threatens the heart of the empire itself. Stoker's tale fuses folklore and myth with scientific rationalism...

...Dracula has spawned many modern-day vampires, but this most iconic character still unleashes the mind's deepest, darkest fears.
