Beastly Journeys

Tim Youngs

Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Richard Marsh’s The Beetle, both from 1897. It reads them both as examples of reverse colonisation and draws a connection betwen the titular characters’ shape-changing and the multiple narratives of the texts. The critical roles played by money and animality reflect anxieties about social, physical and moral identities.

Keywords:   Dracula, Bram Stoker, Richard Marsh, The Beetle, reverse colonisation
