    Abstract: 這篇論文以維多利亞時代的文化及社會為背景,分析布蘭‧史托克的小說《德古拉》,同時以德古拉做為他者的方式來探討。此外,德古拉會被詮釋為一種能同時激發維多利亞人既戀又慮的「詭異」。第一章主要是釐清在接下來幾章會出現的心理分析詞彙。
    This thesis analyzes Bram Stoker’s Dracula in Victorian cultural and social contexts, and reads Dracula as the Other. Besides, Dracula is interpreted as “the uncanny,” which arouses Victorians’ anxiety and fascination. Chapter One mainly clarifies the psychoanalytic concepts, which are applied in the following chapters.
    Chapter Two discusses the issues of gender and sexuality, which are controlled by the patriarchal society or “the Symbolic” in psychoanalytic terms. The issues are explored through parental roles: the Father and the (m)Other. Dracula and Van Helsing are both paternal figures in the novel while the women, including the three female vampires, Lucy, and Mina, are represented as maternal figures and “New Woman.” What is the difference of Dracula’s and Van Helsing’s paternal identities? Is Dracula another incarnation of the patriarchal Father? What is the insinuation of women’s role simultaneously as the (m)Other and the New Woman in this novel? Do these women represent a transgressive power or a stabilizing force for the symbolic order? This chapter combines the social contexts with the textual discussions and expects to find the answers to the above questions.
    Chapter Three carries on the discussion of the Self and the Other in the relationship between the East and the West. The analysis is developed from three aspects. The first is how the novel divulges the British imperialist ideology, (which also corresponds to its historical background), and how the Victorians’ anxiety and fear stem from the “reverse-colonisation” of the East. Then, the discussion shifts to how the imperialist ideology is revealed through Britain’s “double.” Finally, the issues in this chapter are centered on how the imperial fantasy functions through the struggle between the Subject (the vampire hunters) and the Other (vampires), and whether the fantasy maintains the symbolic order.
    In Conclusion, traversing the vampiric fantasy is the ultimate goal for this thesis. Yet, the discussion of Dracula does not end but, in contrast, more reading possibilities based on my reading of the Other develop. The metaphors of dis-ease and virus are applied to characterize Dracula and offer a direction for future research.
