Below is an essay on "Dracula" from Anti Essays, your source for research papers, essays, and term paper examples.

All the vampires are in the Novel Dracula by bram stoker are

very sexual suppressed and this is a metaphor there desire for blood. Many humans are sexual

concealed and it is a type of need for them just as blood is a must for vampires. Sexuality being

the biggest theme, the quote that most interest me is “'Back, I tell you all! This man belongs to

me!'" (pg 39) which is said by Count Dracula to the three women attacking Harker. At first this

may perceived in a sexual manor but as the novel progresses it appears untrue. The men keep

giving Lucy there own blood to substitute for the amount Dracula took from here. This in a way

can also be said that her blood belongs to Dracula. Because of all of these things this novel has a

very gothic and horrific style to it. I extremely enjoyed this novel and I am in no way gothic. The

reason I liked this novel is because it has so many surprises and turns that it captures the reader

and makes you never want to put the novel down. Bram Stoker uses clever words which at first

seem to have one meaning but as you read further into the book you realize that there are other  

explanation. No matter what genres you like this novel will be perfect for you; it is full of action,

horror, mystery and most of all passion. Dracula by Bram Stoker is not only a fascinating novel

but an exhilarating experience.
