Thesis On Dracula And Religion

332 Words2 Pages

The topic I have chosen for my essay is how Dracula is meant to remind society of the importance of religion, specifically Christianity, in Stoker’s time. I intend to do this through analyzing symbols in Dracula, drawing connections between these symbols and Christianity, and analyzing the implications Stoker attempts to make. I chose this topic because vampires and their sacrilegious implications, such as burning when touching a cross, have always been of interest to me, hence why I chose to study Dracula in the first place.
My thesis is:
Stoker uses Count Dracula as symbol to represent what society may become if they abandon religious beliefs. The Count, someone who has abandoned all Christian values, is portrayed as a monster.
