John later admits to his affair to save the lives of his loved ones. He goes from an individual who is prideful in himself, to someone who believes that showing loyalty and respect for others is superior to being a selfish person.

John struggles to do what he knows is right, which is to reveal his affair to the court.

Dr. Van Helsing adds, “We men are determined—nay, are we not pledged?—to destroy this monster; but it is no part for a woman,” (Stoker 221). Later, the men reluctantly allow her to be more involved with the pursuit of the Count because of her telepathic connection to him, but are reluctant to do so because they fear for her health. Because this novel was written during the Victorian era, there was a dramatic gender inequality between men and women, so for Mina to partake at all in their killing of the Count was unusual. Mina is capable and willing to help the men, but is only able to do so as an assistant by typing their diary entries. The gender roles of this time period play a role in who ultimately defeats Dracula, the group of men with Mina only as an onlooker.

It doesn’t matter to him that, once alone with it, the ghost could “assume some other horrible form,/which might deprive [his] sovereignty of reason” (1.4, 72-3). Hamlet wants to see his father and so he sees him. This, more than his opinion on his mother or uncle, solidifies Hamlet’s tendency to never adjust his opinion of someone. In some cases, he supports this by claiming to know the truth of a situation, but in many cases he feels this way without any proof. Even prior to the ghost’s appearance, he doesn’t like his mother or uncle.
“[...] the study and desire of the wisest men since the creation of the world was now within my grasp” (34). He was aware that there was still a lot of work necessary, but not once he doubted that he would achieve it in the end. “[…] but I doubted not that I should ultimately succeed.” (35) It is again a sign of his narcissistic nature which does not permit him to question his ability in the least. Hence, when deciding whether to animate a human being like himself or a simpler animal, he himself admits that his imagination, while only being able to think of the eventual success, would not allow him to settle with the easier task. “I doubted at first whether I should attempt the creation of a being like myself or one of simpler organization; but my imagination was too much exalted by my first success to permit me to doubt of my ability to give life to an animal as complex and wonderful as man.” (35) Victor 's self-absorbed nature leaves him no other choice as to always strive for the most demanding challenge, as he is confident he will not fail.

It might have been fun to watch the two men plan their duel only for the discovery of the oil beneath Mulch to interrupt their plan or for Ben to stop them perhaps revealing another twist. It’s a creative choice, but it doesn’t feel fully satisfying given how much the audience cares about these characters. The script is professionally presented, although occasionally there are some formatting flaws regarding capitalizing names etc. On page 41 a typo is noted: it should be “by yourself” vs.
