Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Context According to Library of Philadelphia "mash-up novels combine literary classics (or historical figures) with anything". The “anything” in this case are zombies. When presented with the title of this parody novel, one might immediately wonder why the author chose zombies of all the possible literary monsters. Setting aside the popularity of the "undead" among the modern society, this choice is not that very far-fetched, considering the time Austen lived in. With the upper-society worried about a possible French invasion and a lower-class revolution brewing, introducing zombies - creatures who have no place in the ordinary social classification and often representing uprisings - seems like the perfect way to shed light on these issues.
Moreover, Cronenberg’s films were successful due to his uniqueness of making body horror films and also different compared to classical horror movies. Other than that, technology is one of the main criteria in his movies. He tends to merge technology with human,
Taking the novel Interview with the vampire as an example, the narrator Louis is regarded as an introspective vampire, who differs a lot from Dracula in many ways. Throughout his life he seeks to find knowledge about God and Hell, wanting to figure out the value of existence without God in a faithless world. He tries to find redemption for himself but failed. Although the introspective vampires have formed their family, the companions are from inside rather than outside and thus virtually they are individuals. According to the senior vampire Armand’s description of Louis “you are the spirit, you are the heart .
Seward, Quincey Morris, and Arthur Holmwood are all surprised and intrigued with the learning of Van Helsing’s knowledge on vampires and the fact that he is a vampire hunter. Van Helsing is the leader of the group when they go off to kill vampires. He formulates the plans to end Dracula’s evil reign and terror. Van Helsing is a great leader, and the most significant trait in him that helps him be a great leader is that he is intelligent in many different fields of medicine and is far more advanced scientist than anyone else of his time. Dr. Seward writes to Van Helsing and it can be known on how intelligent Van Helsing is right away by writing to him.
Another way is through television shows. One of my favorite television shows is Supernatural, which reveals my cultural identity. In this show, the main characters, Dean and Sam, want to stop the apocalypse but Lucifer, the darkness, and everything evil stands in their way, so Dean and Sam continue fighting evil while trying to find a way to stop it. The writer, Andrew Dabb and director, Robert Singer, have a great plot and have a unique way of keeping the viewers interested. They chose amazing actors like, Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, and Mark Sheppard.
Turning a passage of Dracula into a book cover. I have read the book Dracula published in 1887, by Bram Stoker. Jonathan Harker, a lawyer, travels to Transylvania in order to help his client count Dracula, who intends to immigrate to England and who needs Jonathan's help with the legal details. Harker is at first glance much impressed by the count but is soon creeped out by Dracula's ability to claim on walls, speak to wolves and by his lack of servants in his castle. Harker realises too late that he is being held as a prisoner and approximately escapes the castle with his life being on hold.
With a lot of mediaeval history of the Templars, East Indian mysticism, pre-Christian gods such as Odin and Thor, Free Masonry and Hitler, these are some fantastic mysteries in a contemporary setup. The Lodge of the Lynx the second novel in the series is the sequel to Adept the debut novel of the series. Taking place no more than a few weeks after the end of the first novel, it is more of a second part of one novel. “The Adept” have for centuries been fighting off the Evil Powers that have been attempting to take over the world. They have so far been successful but now the Darkness is fighting back, having taken the form of an unholy cult believed to have gone extinct for
All the vampire movies have some similarities and differences but four literature pieces in particular will be gone through in this comparison. The four pieces of literature to be compared in this comparison are Dracula by Bram Stoker, Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992) by Francis Ford Coppola, Nosferatu (1922) by F.W. Murnau, and Dracula (1931) by Tod Browning. In these works of fiction, there are answers to what it would have felt like to be a vampire, what it would have felt like to have a vampire in one’s life, and what the folklores were like. The bigger names such as the Dracula’s and Nosferatu’s were like.
The original template for a vampire has been created through Bram Stokers, Dracula. In this story, Count Dracula has a strange and refined way of communicating and behave strangely towards the protagonist Jonathan Harker; he also displays a wide collection of supernatural abilities, such as strength, the ability to shapeshift and his thirst for blood. Many authors have used this template in order to create their own vampiric creatures; each vampire having a special ability than the next within the realm of horror. As time moved on the vampiric creatures made their way into other genres; such as romance, comedy, science fiction and many more. An example of this evolution would take place in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight.
RAMOS, PATRICIA R61 153486 LIT13 Saved by Nonconformity Twilight. The Vampire Diaries. These are just two of the prime examples that prove the rise of the glossed-over vampire series of the new generation. Vampires are no longer characterized by their pointy teeth and bloodlust, but romanticized to the point that they become love interests and heroes. No longer are they considered to be poster boys for scary Halloween costumes; Dracula is not the face of this race, but Edward Cullen.
