In Villiers de l’Isle-Adam’s L’Eve Future and Bram Stoker’s Dracula, networks of orality and literacy collide with one another. Written more than a decade apart and with no known connections to one another, Stoker and Villiers create novels in which unnatural mediums create and control oral information networks that question the primacy of literacy in the late nineteenth-century. In this study, I examine how the oral and literate networks of L’Eve Future and Dracula function, and question the role phonographic sound recordings affected orality’s position within literate information networks.
