PhotobucketDracula is an 1897 epistolary novel by Irish author Bram Stoker, featuring as its primary antagonist the vampire Count Dracula. It was first published as a hardcover in 1897 by Archibald Constable and Co.
Dracula has been assigned to many literary genres including vampire literature, horror fiction, the gothic novel and invasion literature. Structurally it is an epistolary novel, that is, told as a series of letters, diary entries, ships' logs, etc. Literary critics have examined many themes in the novel, such as the role of women in Victorian culture, conventional and conservative sexuality, immigration, colonialism, postcolonialism and folklore. Although Stoker did not invent the vampire, the novel's influence on the popularity of vampires has been singularly responsible for many theatrical, film and television interpretations since its publication. - Wikipedia

PhotobucketFrankenstein, or, The Modern Prometheus is a novel about a failed artificial life experiment that has produced a monster, written by Mary Shelley. Shelley started writing the story when she was eighteen, and the novel was published when she was twenty-one. The first edition was published anonymously in London in 1818. Shelley's name appears on the second edition, published in France in 1823.
Shelley had travelled the region in which the story takes place, and the topics of galvanism and other similar occult ideas were themes of conversation among her companions, particularly her future husband Percy Bysshe Shelley. The actual storyline was taken from a dream. Shelley was talking with three writer-colleagues, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Lord Byron, and John Polidori, and they decided they would have a competition to see who could write the best horror story. After thinking for weeks about what her possible storyline could be, Shelley dreamed about a scientist who created life and was horrified by what he had made. Then Frankenstein was written.
Frankenstein is infused with some elements of the Gothic novel and the Romantic movement and is also considered to be one of the earliest examples of science fiction. Brian Aldiss has argued that it should be considered the first true science fiction story, because unlike in previous stories with fantastical elements resembling those of later science fiction, the central character "makes a deliberate decision" and "turns to modern experiments in the laboratory" to achieve fantastic results. The story is partially based on Giovanni Aldini's electrical experiments on dead and (sometimes) living animals and was also a warning against the expansion of modern man in the Industrial Revolution, alluded to in its subtitle, The Modern Prometheus. It has had a considerable influence across literature and popular culture and spawned a complete genre of horror stories and films. - Wikipedia

PhotobucketDrácula é um romance de 1897 escrito pelo autor irlandês Bram Stoker, tendo como protagonista o vampiro Conde Drácula. Sem dúvida trata-se do mais famoso conto de vampiros da literatura.
Drácula tem sido designado como vários gêneros literários, incluindo literatura de vampiros, ficção de horror e romance gótico. Estruturalmente, é um romance epistolar, ou seja, contada como uma série de cartas, entradas de diário, registros de bordo etc. Embora Stoker não tenha inventado o vampiro, a influência do romance na popularidade dos vampiros foi singularmente responsável por muitas peças de teatro, cinema, televisão e muitas interpretações ao longo dos séculos 20 e 21. - Wikipedia

PhotobucketFrankenstein, ou O Moderno Prometeu, mais conhecido simplesmente por Frankenstein, é um romance de terror gótico com inspirações do movimento romântico, de autoria de Mary Shelley, escritora britânica nascida em Londres. O romance relata a história de Victor Frankenstein, um estudante de ciências naturais que constrói um monstro em seu laboratório. Mary Shelley escreveu a história quando tinha apenas 19 anos, entre 1816 e 1817, e a obra foi primeiramente publicada em 1818, sem crédito para a autora na primeira edição. Atualmente costuma-se considerar a versão revisada da terceira edição do livro, publicada em 1831, como a definitiva.
O romance obteve grande sucesso e gerou todo um novo gênero de horror, tendo grande influência na literatura e cultura popular ocidental. - Wikipedia
