Summary

Este ebook presenta "Drácula (texto completo, con índice activo)", con un sumario dinámico y detallado.
 
Drácula es una novela publicada en 1897 por Bram Stoker, que ha convertido a su protagonista en el vampiro más famoso. Drácula, parte de la existencia de Vlad Tepes, es un personaje histórico situado en la Rumania del siglo XV, y conocido por su heroicidad contra la invasión otomana, pero también por su crueldad. A partir de esta historia y de no pocas leyendas acerca de él, Bram Stoker escribe esta novela en forma de diarios y cartas que los personajes principales van intercambiándose. Una obra trascendental de la literatura gótica que abrió un nuevo camino en la novela de terror y que instauró la figura del aristócrata transilvano como arquetipo del mal y modelo de seducción perversa.
 
Bram Stoker (1847 - 1912) fue un novelista y escritor irlandés. En su momento fue conocido como el asistente personal del actor Henry Irving y como el gerente del Teatro Lyceum de Londres (del que Irving era dueño), pero hoy en día se le recuerda por la creación de una de las historias de terror más influyentes de todos los tiempos, su novela Drácula, basada en la figura legendaria de Vlad Tepes.

    The first volume of the classic collection of Middle Eastern stories, including “Tale of the Three Apples” and “Tale of the Trader and the Jinni.”   To be chosen by King Shahriyar as a wife was a death sentence.

To that end, each night she spun a new enchanting, erotic, mesmerizing tale, always keeping the king guessing as to its conclusion—and sparing her life for another thousand and one nights.   The first volume of this collection, translated by the renowned British explorer Sir Richard Burton, begins the stories that Scheherazade told . . .

    "That the wish of giving happiness to you might add force to the other inducements which led me on, I shall not attempt to deny." - Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice 
     
    Mr. Bennet had very often wished that, instead of spending his whole income, he had laid by an annual sum for the better provision of his children, and of his wife, if she survived him.  
     
    Alas, he did not live long enough to do it.  
     
    After her father's untimely death, Miss Elizabeth Bennet reads a letter from him in which he tasks her with the protection of her family. 
     
    Elizabeth is willing to do everything in her power to fulfill her father's dying wish, even if it means marrying a man she cannot love. 
     
    There is, however, one man whom she can love. Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy. The two start out as friends, but Mr. Darcy wants more. Much more.  
     
    Surely Elizabeth will not always sacrifice her own happiness for the sake of her family. Or will she?
