Abstract:

"Originally published in French in 2004, Matei Cazacu's Dracula remains the most authoritative scholarly biography of the Wallachian prince Vlad III the Impaler (1448, 1456-1462, 1476). Its core is an exhaustively researched reconstruction of Dracula's life and political career, using original sources in more than nine languages. In addition Cazacu traces Dracula's metamorphosis, at the hands of contemporary propagandists, into variously a bloodthirsty tyrant, and an early modern "great sovereign." Beyond this Cazacu explores Dracula's transformation into "the vampire prince" in literature, film and folklore, with surprising new discoveries on Bram Stoker's sources for his novel. In this first English translation, the text and bibliography are updated, and readers are provided with an appendix of the key sources for Dracula's life, in fresh and accurate English translations." -- Publisher's description
