Although definitely not the only one to experience such dangers, Nina Raspopova’s near death stories highlight some of the many dangers that the 588th faced, and she stresses in her account that she was never not afraid (Noggle, 2001). During one of her missions in 1942, she and her navigator, Larisa…

    The notion of "being damned" is not only linked to Dracula 's taking of Lucy and his biting of Mina, but seen in a larger sense. Dracula represents evil and a sense of the ungodly, while the vampire hunters represent good and the force of righteousness that seeks to stamp out evil. The very idea of being able to demonize or find an embodiment of evil occupies a large role in the text, making it a statement of good vs. evil, sin vs. redemption. I think that another large theme that comes out…

Mina should not be so fond of Dracula, due to what he has done to her best friend, Lucy, yet it shows in the movie that she slowly falls in love with him.

    First off, I thought it was interesting that Jonathan Harker couldn’t locate the 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…
