In the first place, it’s easy to say Jonathan is naive for not realizing Dracula is a vampire although in reality because we have read the title we have a decent expectation of what the plot will contain. Bram Stoker made Dracula 's lineage as a nobleman crucial because this allows Dracula to set
Hanker describes Dracula as strong, “saying he moved impulsively forward, and holding out his hand grasped mine with a strength which made me wince.” (Stoker ) So not only is Dracula strong, he made Hanker wince. In that same meeting, he felt the ice coldness of his hand. He also grabs up Hankers luggage instead of calling a servant.
Another convention of German Expressionism is a harsh set design. Jagged lines, winding roads, jolting architecture and looming archways are all classic pieces to an expressionist set design. And while the set design of Metropolis was extremely elaborate and still astonishing to this day, it does not truly fit the expressionist style. The city
A beautiful portrait of the fair is built with Larson’s detailed depictions of “the buildings, waterways, and scenery” (Larson 274) within this spectacle. The clear pictures painted in the reader’s mind transports them to this wonder-filled attraction. However, more disturbing images are depicted in subtle ways, like the fact that Holmes “often smelled vaguely of chemicals” (Larson 46.) An image of horror conjures within the mind of the reader at this seemingly minuscule detail.
The approach of Irving to the creation of national literary icons which will be accepted and read by every new generation could not be estimated. The activity of Irving in this direction almost always makes him different from the other authors. In “Rip Van Winkle” among the features which could be able to attract the attention of the reader we can point out the tone of the story. Indicating
Classic features of German Expressionism consist of dark and abstract sets and heavy shadows. However, this is not limited to set, the makeup and costume design also use heavy shadows-
Burton uses this excellently to show an even darker tone to the move if you pay attention. A great use of this is in Edward scissor hands in the attic of the mansion when he first meets Peg, she asks him if he had a mom or dad then proceeded to ask where they were Edward responds with, “they never woke up”. With a similar depth of meaning beetle guise says he survived the black plague which means he was alive before the renaissance. As you can see this is just some of the depth and meaning in Burtons films. Overall Burton’s dark style is obviously seen in his films like Edward Scissor hands And Beetle juice.
While Victor at first appears “tranquil” and calm when he sees Henry and is talking, Victor become “evidently constrained” once they return to his apartment and believes the monster was coming to attack him. Here his “confusion had become adduced as a proof of (his) guilt” when Henry questions Victor with “How ill you are!” and asking “What is the cause of all this.” (pg.85) Elizabeth also states that Justine has “worked up (in) her mind an appearance of courage” which correlates directly with Victor’s thought process throughout these final chapters in volume one where he immediately blames his monster for murdering William. Despite being proven true at the end of the monster’s tale, it’s a pretty illogical leap for Victor to make the assumption that his monster, who he created back in Ingolstadt, would kill his brother in the woods despite seeing his figure wander around in the same area.
In the stories of “Adventures of the German student” and “La Belle Dame Sans Merci”, the characters become victims of demonic oppression. The first protagonist, Gottfried Wolfgang was a smart and intelligent individual who studied at one of the top schools, but because of his research he ends up facilitating demonic infestation through performing rituals. By practising Wolfgang breaks the law of invitation and brings a demon into his life, that later takes advantage of him. Then in the second tale, the knight-at arms was a gentleman that becomes captured by Bella Dame’s charms and falls for her. Then during their time together, she seduces him, and he falls into a coma for many months, only to live the same dream repeatedly.
The successful use of the word “snakes” trigger us to those negative connotations about snakes such as betrayal and sins as in the biblical stories. This shows the inherited evil that the Nazis ideology transplant into the souls of the guards. Another striking irony is shown in the line “grants us a grave in the winds” in which the word “grants” (Celan 17). This word is only associated with positive connotations such as granting one a wish, but in this context, it is used ironically to further increase the horror of the prisoners when the guard sets his hounds to kill the prisoners and later burn them to send their remains into the
Allowing a deadly viper to roam free increases the risk of being bitten. Buckley coerces the jury into believing it would be downright sinful to allow such a threat to live. Buckley makes Bigger’s guilt appear impossible to deny. His appeals create a call for action to put the beast to
