    said yes then Dracula might just be the book for you. Dracula, or should I say Count Dracula, is an elderly looking gentlemen who lives in a castle in Transylvania.

A man by the name of Van Helsing plots an attack on Dracula to bring him down. If you would love to learn more about this nail biter, then continue reading. “Listen to them, the children of the night. What music they make!” In the story Dracula there is a clash of religion. Dracula is more of a satanic or evil character. He only creeps about at night. If he does come out during the day he is covered from head to toe. Light represents good. Dark represents evil. He mostly remains in the darkness throughout the story. When people in the story hear that Harker is going to Dracula’s castle they form crosses with their hands. The crucifix is used to ward off evil by the majority of religious people. A crucifix is a symbol of Christian religion and typically has Jesus crucified on it. Not all have the crucification on it. A lot of them are actually just a cross. It is believed that it can protect you…

    With reference to the key concepts of purity and impurity, magical thinking, mythmaking, formalization, and the strong emotions it can be shown that the character Count Dracula is dangerous, and that is was right for him to be treated as such. To be dangerous in this case means to be have both the potential and the desire to cause some sort of extreme detriment to others, whatever the motive behind the action is.

    The novel Dracula written by Bram Stoker’s has countless adaptations due to Stoker’s unique construction of the monstrous character Count Dracula.

    The story of a vampire, Count Dracula, written by Bram Stoker. Back in 1879 when this piece of literature was written it did not take much to push fear into an average persons mind. But what about this novel makes it so horrifying? Motifs such as revenants, somnambulism, mist/fog, curses, cemeteries, and many more are what give many gothic novels their appeal and emotional interest. This novel has a way of making the reader overthink everything and second guess themselves when it comes to…

    When people think of the infamous Wallachian ruler Vlad III Drăculea, they think of the famous literary monster of nightmares, Bram Stoker’s Count Dracula. Dracula, who has appeared in many media outlets from the big screen of Hollywood to the bright lights of Broadway, is thought by many to have been inspired by the Wallachian Voivode that is better known as Vlad the Impaler. There is, however, little evidence that backs this assumption. In fact, there is actually a lot of evidence that refutes…

    exact location of Count Dracula’s castle on any of the maps that he viewed. This set the mood of the novel for me. I think the author, Bram Stoker, put in little hints of “horror” to set the tone for the rest of the novel. Being that I have not read nor seen Dracula, I thought the first chapter was very intriguing. Whenever the topic of Count Dracula came about it seemed as if everyone in the novel deemed him to be something bad; he’s almost like a curse. There was even a point in which…

    Once Harker escaped and arrived safely home with his new wife, the count seizes the opportunity to use both his time and means to toy with these mere mortals, to the point of insanity. “Bah! What good are peasants without a leader? Where ends the war without a brain and heart to conduct it?” (Stoker 30). The boyar Count Dracula signifies the cold, adverse characteristics of an immoral conqueror, only out for his own interests as his violent ancestors in their Turkish wars. As Harker and his…
