Dracula stands for Satan, and that stands for whatever is evil and bad. He hates goodness and tries to perpetuate evil while at the same time keeping an almost charming since about himself. However despite the vampires charm and strangely enticing appearances their wickedness could not be hidden from the band of men. Even beautiful Lucy, when she becomes a vampire, is hated by this band of men, despite the fact they were in love with her before. This is clearly a battle between the two most significant supernatural beings in the Christian Faith.
It is there that Dracula in a burst of anger stabs the cross, and renounces God and everything pure. Dracula is immortal everyone knows that. He has the ability to control minds as we’ve seen from both R. M. Renfield and Mina’s friend Lucy. With Lucy we also saw that he has the ability to shape shift when he turned into a werewolf type creature when he rapes her, and thought he doesn’t see her Mina is standing back watching when he says “No! Do not see me!” When this happens he quickly hides, and Mina forgets what she ever saw and truly thinks to herself that “Lucy, you're dreaming.
Customarily, one champion saunters through the stages monomyth alone. However, in Bram Stoker’s Dracula, the protagonists of the novel collectively advance through and represent the different phases of the heroes’ journey in their quest to defeat Dracula. Jonathan Harker’s separation, Mina Harker’s initiation, and Quincey Morris’s sacrifice all contribute to the eradication of the Nosferatu. Initially, the hero’s journey begins with the hero being called to an adventure, leaving the ordinary world, and crossing the threshold between the ordinary world and the special, supernatural one. In addition, commonly, “The hero feels the fear of the unknown and tries to turn away from the adventure, however briefly” (Vogler).
Filled with theatrical themes, dramatic irony and symbolism, Dracula acts as much more than a vampire novel. Bram Stoker writes of an assembly of people who have to contract a way to save themselves and others by putting their lives in danger against a resilient vampire. Although society of the time period frowned upon certain behaviors, Stoker managed to get away with writing shocking the social values of a Victorian reader. Through symbolism, Stoker explores female sexual corruption and Christian salvation by contrasting the power of good over evil. Dracula opens with Jonathan Harker, a man who is newly engaged to Mina Murray, traveling to Transylvania on a business trip while telling of his journey through a web of journal entries that last from May to June.
The same goes for Lucy and Arthur. When Lucy is bitten by the vampire and becomes close to death due to loss of blood, Arthur is the first to volunteer himself for the transfusions at the hands of the expert Van Helsing. As the story progresses, teamwork begins to root itself at the core of the plot, eventually everyone must band together and take down Dracula, this shows the concept of teamwork as a major theme in the
In the beginning of the book, right after the creation of the monster, Victor fled his home to get away from the creature, only to return and find that it had escaped. While in the mountains Victor is approached by the monster who begs for understanding from Victor, that it's killing of Victor's younger brother William Frankenstein was out of confusion and it was only intending to hurt Victor, as he saw him as his cruel creator. The monster then asks Victor to create him a female monster, equally grotesque to be his soul mate. If Victor was so passionate about his work you would think he'd keep his monster locked up or under some kind of control, but since victor left his monster free to roam, it left Victor not knowing any better. It is Frankenstein’s responsibility to teach the monster and see it as a friend.
I guess this particular incident in Watchmen (graphic novel) involving Rorschach bursting out in tears just before his death is a very significant one! It's significant not just because this is the first time that Rorschach actually shows some emotions, but also because Rorschach himself pretty much "orders" (or permits, in a way) Dr. Manhattan (Jonathan Osterman) to kill him! The two words that Rorschach speaks before his death - "DO IT" - make him pretty much one of the wisest of the characters in the Watchmen super heroes! Before I further elaborate on this, let me remind you that Rorschach is the only super hero in Watchmen known for his singular Black & White view of the world. He feels that there is either absolute right or absolute
The pain that Bella feels when Edward abandons her is extremely well written and is really what this story is about. Most of the things that happen to Bella in New Moon are as a result of the overwhelming loss that she is trying to bear. Her friendship with Jacob has a doomed quality to it not only because he obviously loves her while she is in love with Edward but because he is a werewolf and he naturally hates all vampires. Things are only getting more dangerous for Bella, but she doesn't care. Victoria, an evil vampire, then comes back to Forks avenging her mate James.
In addition, Frankenstein himself believes that he has created 'a thing such as even Dante could not have conceived'. Therefore, the reader's impression of the creature is biased at this point. Even before the creature is introduced to the reader, the choice of diction in the chapter prepares its entrance. Firstly, the fact that the corpse was brought to life on a 'dreary night of November' underlines its importance in Frankenstein's life. It also implies that Frankenstein was only
