I believe Van Helsing is one of the most interesting characters in the whole book of Dracula. At a glance I think of Van Helsing as a very intelligent, down to earth, and caring man. The thing is with him is there is something about this man that separates him from all the other characters. If you read a summary of the story, I feel like you really would not even touch what his true self is like. Van Helsing is an essential part of the book, and without him the story would not be the same.
As Stephen King once said, “Get busy living, or get busy dying.” Stephen King, an american horror author, is considered by the masses to be one of the most influential authors of the late nineteenth and twentieth century. With at least 136 works from novels to novellas written, King has left a lasting impact on everyone all around the world. King combined horror with mystery to give readers a story to remember. Kings books not only appear in almost every library, but are shown through movies ranging from The Shining (1980) to It (2017). King was placed number one on New York Times best-seller list before the book It was officially published.

The thought of men as a dominant creature has always been prevalent. Men are typically imaged as powerful, masculine, and brave. The novel reveals these attributes by having the men fight against Count Dracula. Their willingness to take on such a task shows their bravery. Dr. Van Helsing carries the trait of decisiveness as he was able to make tough decisions to save the lives of others.
Dracula wanted his victims to feel the way that he feels with staying alive forever and not dying. However, it was unlikely that anyone would kill Dracula especially in a country such as England which the doctor explained. The doctor let this be known when he assumed, “The strength of the vampire is that people will not believe in him” (Browning). The doctor knew that people were unlikely to kill Dracula in England because people did not think that the myth of a vampire could be true. The Doctor knew that English people did not believe that the folklores were true but the doctor believed in the folklores and knew that the stories of Dracula were true.

In Act III, Macbeth is now king and he wants people to respect him and listen to what he has to say. Macbeth talks to the murderers and they answer with,“We shall, my lord, perform what you command us” (III.i.139-140). Macbeth tells the servants to get his drink ready and tries to make everything seem normal before he commits the crime. This quote helps us get an understanding of how Macbeth wants to kill King Duncan and that he has put a lot of thought into it. He doesn't want anything to seem out of the ordinary so no one suspects him of anything when the time comes.
Dracula himself embodies the extremes of tradition. When Jonathan Harker first meets Dracula, the Count is already a man past his prime. “We Szekelys have a right to be proud, for in our veins flows the blood of many brave races who fought as the lion fights, for lordship.” (65) Dracula feels deserving of power because he inherited it- and he annihilates any threat to it. Count Dracula’s stubbornness makes the tradition he stands for appear childish and insensitive. In his dedication to his lineage, Count Dracula employs simple, technologically outdated methods for his plans, such as using horses in his trips instead of a train, or using a old ship where a steamboat would have been more efficient.
Lady Macbeth is very passionate that the king must die in order for Macbeth to become the King, but she is worried that he will be to “soft” to do such a thing. “ Yet I do fear thy nature, it is too full o’ th milk” ( 1.5.16). Throughout her soliloquy, she fears that his sympathy will be his downfall and will prevent him from going along with her plan. She is confident that the only way for her plan to work, is to take action right away and,”play false” (1.5.22). Macbeth won’t do anything that will harm his friend, the King, and Lady Macbeth knows that so she knows what to do, she will make sure that he will go through with the regicide.
At first, Macbeth was hesitant about killing the king because he knew that King Duncan is a great ruler. The people love him, Macbeth is his host, and he is afraid of getting caught. Despite these considerations, however, Lady Macbeth convinces him. She tells him that they will murder Duncan at night, and they will blame it on the guards. After Macbeth agrees to the plan, explains that he has “no spur To prick the sides of my intent, but only Vaulting ambition, which o’erleaps itself And falls on the other…” (I, sc vii, 25-27).
