This project explores Dracula's many shifting guises and identities, chiefly examining them through an Irish/Mytho-Celtic lens. Among these are Dracula's role as conqueror, mythical Celtic figure, sexual liberator, imperialist, aristocrat, landlord, victim and agent of imperialism. Although Dracula's nature and his portrayal in the novel is often contradictory, this project seeks to acknowledge the contradictions while at the same time pushing beyond them to get at the, for lack of a better phrase, soul of Dracula's character.
