In order to investigate and present some of Stoker's lesser known works, the analysis is concentrated on the most prominent elements present in his novels, like: the negative impact of the natural environment on the mind and body, the transgression of moral and social boundaries, and the relationship between woman and evil. Prior to a close investigation, each chapter first presents the theory behind each topic, and exemplifies it by giving an overview of prominent literary works that appeared before 1900.
