Abstract

Bram Stoker’s Dracula is one of the most popular literary texts ever written in English. Like most other Victorian prose fiction, Dracula is set in a gothic atmosphere and builds a shocking suspense, evoking fear and therefore destabilising emotional equilibrium in the readers. The mysterious and exotic geography of Eastern Europe metonymically portrayed through Carpathian Mountains, textualises the imperial strategies of demonization/dehumanization of the non-British. This paper attempts a critique of the popular novel Dracula to uncover the British anxiety of an anticipated political setback and social relativism as well as the social/psychological /sexual and political hegemony.

Key words: Fear, threat, Christianity, other, discourse and diabolism
