¶ The most famous and influential of all vampire novels. "Although it is based in part on the crude VARNEY, THE VAMPIRE and the superior Carmilla by LeFanu, Dracula remains the definitive treatment of the classical vampire, a work of great imagination and conviction. While it is generally conceded that it has technical weaknesses - wooden characters, sentimental writing, needless complexity - its virtues overweigh its flaws and it is one of the great classics of supernatural fiction." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction (1983); item 1546.
