This study examines Stoker’s contribution to the modern notion of Gothic and demonstrates that Gothic excess is Stoker’s way of focusing on social, economic, and political problems. What makes this study unique is that it privileges Stoker’s development of modern Gothic in Dracula but also addresses Stoker’s works that are decidedly not Gothic. The creator of Dracula wrote for the Irish Civil Service as well as created The Man and Lady Athlyne, two romances. Understanding the Stoker, who was fascinated with technology and racial and gender development as well as Gothic mystery, helps readers understand fin de siècle tensions.
