Sherry Yielding Karen Sanders English 1003 April 9, 2016 Vlad the Impaler and Bram Stoker’s Dracula Vlad the Impaler was a man who lived in and ruled Wallachia, a territory in modern-day Romania, in the 1400's. There are many differing myths and legends surrounding his life and also, his death. Was Vlad actually a vampire or simply a man with a figurative thirst for blood? Is Vlad really dead?

TO BELONG OR NOT TO BELONG Throughout the gothic history, the vagueness between the “outside” and “inside” has existed for a long time, which is considered as one of the main features of gothic novels. According to this, the development of the differentiation between “outside” and “inside” has encountered two periods, using vampire gothic novels as examples. Firstly, in the novel Dracula, Count Dracula is defined as the “outside”, who yet reflects some human tendency and instinct. Secondly, using the novel Interview with the vampire as an example, the introspective vampires like Louis are considered as the “inside”, who symbolize modern consciousness however lacking in the “outside”. Ultimately the “outside” is transformed into the deeper inside
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.
Dracula Sucks While the image of vampires has become vastly distorted through the commercialization of the horror genre to a more comical and tacky depiction of a once-feared fictional monster, Stoker’s use of gothic elements in a Victorian environment, the masked theme of xenophobia that is weaved throughout the novel, as well as the combination of multiple different types of terror frightened Victorian readers and, in some parts, frightens us still today. According to Stephen King in Danse Macabre, there are “three types of terror”: the “gross-out”, comprised of gore and and blood; “horror”, or the supernatural fears like the undead and unnaturally large insects; and “terror”, which is the fear of strange happenings that are disturbing or unsettling without a known cause. (cite) Stoker mainly uses horror to incite fear in his readers over the course of Dracula; the novel’s plot is centered around the existence of a vampire disguised as a Transylvanian nobleman. Stoker also utilizes gross-outs often to adhere to the gothic theme of the
Blood is involved way more in the story of Dracula than people are able to see just by simply reading the story. During the writing of Dracula, victorian England was a society governed by the strict morals of society. Bram Stoker wrote Dracula in order to voice an opinion on politics and the morality of society when it was incredibly looked down upon to do so in public. The book was significant because it was one of the first to indicate sexual topics in a novel without explicitly saying them. In Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Blood is the driving force that transfers the book from plot point to plot point and is active spiritually and physically.
Rosemary adds ‘the narrative gestures more specifically toward popular debate about science by arguing that it is their very reliance on scientific rationality that makes the English so vulnerable to Dracula's threat’ (274). Count Dracula, who has powerful hypnotic and telepathic abilities and defies the normal laws of life and death, is proof of occult forces beyond the reach of contemporary science. The Count is able to go unnoticed in Whitby as modern
In my opinion, the film and story create a sense of insecure and tension as the descriptive and similes make you imagine what is happening. The story and the film also have the same setting as they are both set at the Count’s home. Another similarity is that Count Dracula and Count Orlok share the same clothing and appearance as they are tall, clad in black from head to foot. Even though in the Dracula extract is also says that Dracula carried an antique silver lamp but in the film Count Orlok is hunched
