Smartly enough Van Helsing makes a circle of wafer crumbs around them to keep them safe from the devilish spirits that roam the lands around them. This turned out to be a smart plan for Dracula's wives come and attempt to seduce Van Helsing but did not work on him unlike Jonathan Harker. In Jonathan's case the sweet singing which reminded himself of Mina's voice guided him into the ghastly chamber of the three hellish women. To his demise, he falls for their trickery as they slowly feast on his blood. As Jonathan looks upon the three beautiful beasts, he says “I felt in my heart a wicked burning desire that they would kiss me with their red lips” (53).
Their commitment to each other has no boundaries, as described in Sonnet 116. Their rebellion against their families proves their determination to preserve their love, at all costs. In the play, Juliet fakes her death so she can run away with Romeo. However, Romeo thinks she’s actually dead because he doesn’t receive her message and in response, kills himself using poison. When Juliet sees Romeo dead beside her, she tries to kiss his lips so she’s poisoned by the same poison as him but it doesn’t work so she stabs herself with the help of his dagger.
Hamlet feels betrayed by his mother and feels like he can 't trust anyone. Shakespeare gives Hamlet these struggles in the play to amplify the mental and psychological events that make the reader feel bad about what all happened to Hamlet. Hamlet eventually kills Claudius like his father told him to, but only did it after his mother, Gertrude, drank the poison that Claudius meant to give Hamlet. This is a result of external action from all the sorrows that was building up in Hamlet’s life. This brings us to our next character, Gertrude, Claudius’s wife and Hamlets
As Jonathan found himself lying in a hospital bed after being held prisoner by Dracula, he was thought to be delirious by his doctors and nurses. Jonathan was acting in strange ways and saying strange things, which led the nurses to assumed that it was due to his presumed illness. This is exactly what one of the nurses wrote to Mina in a letter, “He has had some fearful shock—so says our doctor—and in his delirium his ravings have been dreadful; of wolves and poison and blood; of ghosts and demons; and I fear to say of what. Be careful with him always that there may be nothing to excite him of this kind for a long time to come; the traces of such an illness as his do not lightly die away” (page 86). The nurse believes that the possibility of wolves, poison, blood, ghosts, and demons existing is inconceivable and absolutely preposterous.
The evil part is considered the behavior that shows Dracula to kill everyone who interferes in his plans. The good part is Jonathan Harker who will fight against the vampire in order to avoid the danger in the society. This novel presents a variety of characters in which the principal that I considered
This potion will feign her death for forty two hours by putting her in a cold, death like, deep sleep. Juliet has a fearful thought that in fact the sleeping potion is a pernicious poison and the Friar is trying to kill her. However, she assuages these fears by reminding herself he is a holy man who would not commit such cunning actions. This foreshadows the lamentable death of Juliet, relating to the tone of tragedy. “What if it be a poison which the Friar subtly hath minist’red to have me dead… methinks it should not for he heath still be tried a holy man.” (Shakespeare iv.
Passion and Destruction As W. Somerset Maugham once said, “Passion doesn’t count the cost...Passion is destructive.” In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Victor Frankenstein leaves Geneva, his home town in the pursuit of knowledge, ding so he created a creature. Frankenstein gets frightened after the created the creature, so he leaves the creature in fear, only when he returns the creature is no longer there. The creature goes off on his own and get revenge on Victor by murder the people he is close to. Victor wants the creature dead and the creature wants Victor dead, in the end they both get what they wanted. The theme that passion can be destructive is shown through the creature, Victor's self destruction, and Victor and the creature’s passion to get revenge on each other.
Furthermore, they also share corresponding behaviours, which is illustrated by Van Helsing’s action of breaking into Dracula’s place. Van Helsing says “Come. If there be no way open to get in, we must make one. Time is all in all to us now” (183), which can be linked with Dracula forcing his way into Lucy’s bedroom having a wolf break the window glass. Another interesting parallel that emerged in the novel is when Van Helsing hypnotizes Mina so that they are able to find out the whereabouts of Count Dracula, which is similar to Count Dracula having the ability to control Lucy (which was the cause of her sleep
To Victorians, the characters and actions within Dracula were very scandalous. For example, the exchange of blood. During this time period, the exchange of blood was seen as an intimate task between two people. In the beginning of the novel, Lucy Westenra is a victim of Dracula as he regularly consumed her blood. It was decided that Lucy wasn’t doing very well and she needed a blood transfusion.
For example, in the silence and darkness of night, after Macbeth kills Duncan and Lady Macbeth frames the guards, she states, “My hands are of your color, but I shame to wear a heart so white,”(2.2.61-62). Saying that her hands were of his color means that her hands were covered in blood, an ubiquitous image that is used multiple times throughout the play. Notably, blood is connected to death and darkness, especially throughout Macbeth. The blood contributes to the evil theme and creates a dark tone; therefore, causing Lady Macbeth to be seen as evil. Along with the blood connection, the fact that she told macbeth that she would be ashamed if her heart was white (weak) as his reveals her desire to be strong.
The downfall of Lucy Westerna and the arrival of Dracula arose fears in which only challenging their sense of humanity and understanding of the world could they be able to overcome the dangers which had surrounded them. A sense of urgency is created in when Bram Stoker uses exclamation marks, as the turn of Lucy begins. “Arthur! Kiss me!” she states it as if it must happen now, or it never will. As Lucy becomes a vampire, she becomes increasingly sexualized.
Juliet herself drank the sleeping potion when Romeo was on his way earlier than anticipated, whom bought poison upon hearing of her "death" , planning to kill himslef on her tomb alongside her. The friar 's inability to succesfully delivering the letter to Romeo stating that Juliet was alive was a gap that caused romeo to make his harsh decision, but it was too late once he got to the tomb. Upon killing Paris and himself with the poison, Romeo fell beside Juliet, whom stabbed herself once she awoke upon seeing Romeo dead before her eyes. Had Romeo and Juliet respected their families wishes, had they not gone into secrecy, had their relatives stayed out of their love, they wouldnt have blindly caused
