“Rumours of the great plague”: medicine, mythology and the memory of the Sligo cholera in Bram Stoker’s 'Under the sunset’

Hughes, W (2014) '“Rumours of the great plague”: medicine, mythology and the memory of the Sligo cholera in Bram Stoker’s 'Under the sunset’.' In: Killeen, J, ed. Bram Stoker: centenary essays. Four Courts Press, Dublin, pp. 114-130. ISBN 9781846824074

Item Type: Book Chapter or Section
Additional Information:

Despite his vampire creation, Dracula, being world-famous, and in spite of a host of academic studies of the novel in which this vampire first appeared, Stoker himself remains a figure shrouded in darkness, and his other writings are virtually unknown and ignored. This collection addresses this large gap. The main aim of the collection is to read Stoker in the round, expanding the critical focus away from an exclusive obsession with Dracula and taking account of the full extent of Stoker’s writing.
