Perhaps the most famous vampire story of all time, and the most popular, Dracula is recreated in its entirety in this unabridged audio program. The story of Dracula has been retold and recreated many times in film and on the stage in the last hundred years. Yet, it is essentially a Victorian saga, an awesome tale of a thrillingly bloodthirsty vampire whose nocturnal atrocities embody the dark underside of an outwardly moralistic age. Dracula represents all the hidden and repressed power of male and female sexuality, of animal lust, and passion unleashed. Above all, Dracula is a quintessential story of suspense and horror, boasting one of the most terrifying creatures in literature: centuries-old Count Dracula. Near the beginning of this tale, Jonathan Harker knows little of what is in store when he receives the following letter: "My friend - Welcome to the Carpathians. I am anxiously expecting you. Sleep well tonight. At three tomorrow the diligence will start for Bukovina; a place on it is kept for you. At the Borgo Pass my carriage will await you and bring you to me. Your friend, Dracula."
