First Thoughts When I first started reading Fever 1793, I already expected it to be an exceptional book. Since there was suspense of family and friends catching yellow fever, it made the book extremely intriguing. The book, Fever 1793, was about a girl named Matilda Cook, whose town got infested with a terrible pestilence called yellow fever. Like Matilda, I have had the feeling of losing my grandfather. Although I have never been to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, there has been a severe flu season this year.

As stated in the Norton, “Walter Jekyll, encouraged him to write in Jamaican dialect, or Creole” (Norton 2721).

Vampires as archetype villains have evolved and indeed represent the context in which they are created. The vampire archetype has adapted to the time and context to suit the modern day audience to entertain the 21st century generation. Stoker created the unethical villain Dracula that embodied the appearance of the vampire archetype and religion of society in the late 19th century. The vampire diaries created by Williamson in 2009 is an example of how this archetype character has evolved to suit modern audiences through acceptance and the romance genre.
