Stephen Kings is a highly celebrated American author of contemporary horror, thriller and science fiction. With over 200 stories and over 50 novels published in the last 5 decades, he is a known figure not only in the literary society but also in the entertainment industry, with his works being turned into movies, TV Series and comics. Most of his famous works that will be called classics are based on supernatural horror, with science and psychology thrown in the mix for just the right effect that makes them relatable to readers on a completely different level than the stories of other horror writers. King is celebrated for his knack of using the mundane lives lead in unexciting and monotonous towns, with dull and glaringly unremarkable people, to convey how horror is there right around the corner, not just in fiction that cannot touch the reality. Social issues and the psychological problems rampant in the world since the Great War of 1910 serve as the building blocks of horror and thriller in his works.
Dracula’s Immortality No horror novel has achieved the fame of Dracula. Bram Stoker’s imaginative battle between a motley crew of characters and a centuries-old vampire is one that has captivated for over a century. This longevity cannot be attributed to the plot alone. Dracula is able to captivate because it contains many types of struggles, each one relatable to different social contexts.

He then falls but is able to bypass a large pit in the middle of the dungeon. In addition, he finds a sharp pendulum hanging over him dropping slowly, driving him to near madness. Towards the end, the raw food which his captives had given him helps to draw rats to the narrator and gnaw away the bonds on the contraption he was tied to.
This is important because it shows how the author uses symbolism to convey messages through the character’s thoughts which is an example of Steinbeck 's voice. Ultimately, the reader learns that the smallest of details can make a huge difference, and they change one’s life in an instant.

The first aspect, an element that defies natural law, is included in each story by transforming the main character into an insect, an example of Kafka drawing from “The Transformation of Arachne into a Spider.” Secondly, including an element treated as realistic, is shown in The Metamorphosis by having Gregor’s boss show up at his house because he was late to work, shown when Gregor’s father says, “the chief clerk has come round and wants to know why you didn 't leave on the early train.” This element is shown in “The Transformation of Arachne into a Spider” by having Pallas appear and the townspeople act as if nothing strange has happened, demonstrated when “The maid alone stood unappall 'd.” The third aspect, revealing human truth, is done through writing a deeper meaning and message into the story.
