The Man

'The Man' is a gothic novel combining elements of horror and romance written by Bram Stoker, the author of the acclaimed 'Dracula' made famous by the 1931 movie adaption starring Bela Lugosi. Other masters of gothic fiction include Edgar Allan Poe and H.G. Wells.

'The Man' follows the story of Stephen, a lovely young woman and Harold, who is slowly approaching manhood. This story focuses on the immense social and physical proprieties required of the pre-industrial era in England and the struggles facing Stephen and Harold in overcoming them. Stephen is a remarkable character, that has an enlightened feminist perspective ahead of her time, liberating her from the confined conventions regarding a women's role in society. Stoker's descriptive powers seen in the renowned 'Dracula' are also vividly demonstrated in 'The Man' .
