Sample text

In 1890 Stoker visited Whitby, a trip which he famously revisits in Dracula in ways which, I argue, do not only contribute a picturesque setting to the novel but also inform its examinations of domesticity versus foreign threats and of evolutionary theory. Finally, 1893 saw the first of his subsequently regular trips to Cruden Bay in Aberdeenshire, which became the setting for The Watter’s Mou’ and The Mystery of the Sea, and here too the connotations of the location condition the meanings of the fictions.

In ‘The Burial of the Rats’, a tale centred on the repeated stripping to the bone of fresh corpses left accessible to rats, the gruesome events are specifically located near the Enceinte (DG: 101), which is the French term not only for a protective fortification but also for ‘pregnant’. In ‘A Dream of Red Hands’, motherhood, being in this case the product of seduction, is a hideous and fatal misfortune which can be only obliquely described: ‘I learned that her shame had come and that she had died in it’ (DG: 132).

It considers particularly the extent to which his novels can be seen as dealing with questions of Irishness and, above all, of Irish Home Rule, and the ways in which both the possibilities and the restrictions of London life are figured in his work. The fourth chapter, ‘On Holiday’, looks at Stoker’s travels. Almost as important to Stoker’s fiction as London are the places to which he (and even to some extent his friends) travelled during the years that he lived there. From 1883, the Lyceum company, and Stoker with it, toured America almost annually, and this is reflected in novels like The Shoulder of Shasta and Lady Athlyne, as well as in the important rôle played by the Texan Quincy Morris in Dracula.
