Howling can constantly be heard everywhere the Count is and they are quieted at the command of Dracula. Wolves are known for their servitude to evil. From this, the reader can assume Dracula plays a role as the antagonist.
The tone of this passage is very gloomy with the ways he describes how the wolf looked and felt. The tone is also depressing when he says, “he closed his eyes then could see her running in the mountains, running in the starlight”(McCarthy line 46), this point shows the wolf was innocent and never did wrong, which makes the impact of her death truly depressing. The mood of the passage is created by the past tense the author uses to describe each traumatic event that happened. The feeling I get while reading this is sad and mournful because the wolf not only meant a lot to the main character but to nature itself. Tone and mood are similar in meaning but they both help in expressing the impact the wolves death left on

Count Dracula, a fictional character in the Dracula novel written by Bram Stoker was inspired by one of the best-known figures of Romanian history, Vlad Dracula, nicknamed Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler), who was the ruler of Walachia at various times from 1456-1462. Born in 1431 in Sighisoara, he resided all his adult life in Walachia. "The Impaler” suggests, that his practice in impaling his enemies was part of his historical reputation, using this notorious act it conjures up the emotion that runs deep within ourselves which is fear. Alongside this, it specifically also arises in the result of the unknown. Fear being an emotion generally associated with anxiety – the powerful feeling that is brought upon by worry, dread and tension.
But in the Polish/German version of the article "Three billy goats gruff", there is a wolf on a narrow mountain path. "But a wolf laid himself across the narrow mountain path".

I 've got two spears, And I 'll poke your eyeballs out at your ears; I 've got besides two curling-stones, And I
The story references the wolf in “Little Red Riding Hood”: “...the jaw and chin and cheeks slightly darkened, because he hadn 't shaved for a day or two, and the nose long and hawk-like, sniffing as if she were a treat he was going to gobble up...” (Oates 510). Arnold proved similar to the wolf as he also disguised himself. The subtle reference to “The Three Little Pigs” is noticed towards the end of the story when Arnold, or the wolf, tries to lure Connie out of the house: “This place you are now-inside your daddy 's house-is nothing but a
The novel, Dracula, had various themes present in the novel some including “Good vs. Evil”, gender, and the consequences of female expression. My creative response portrays the themes of this novel as well as other main parts in the books through the variety of parts and colours I used. The black box represents the “boxes of earth” which Dracula must sleep in when he is powerless during the day. In a way, it was one of his most prominent weaknesses which lead to his downfall at the end of the novel. I painted the box of earth, black on the outside and white on the inside to illustrate the theme “Good vs. Evil” since black is usually known as a colour of evil and darkness, and white is known as good and light.

The book also mentions that the vampires are repelled by communion wafers and the cross. This give the impression that they are unholy and truly are demons that need to be killed. In addition, the group stuck these items around Lucy, after returning her innocence. This could give the book a central topic of the prospect of Christen salvation. Dracula features several topics, but few themes.
