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.

Rose of Sharon leaves to live with family on the reservation, and Junior leaves only to later freeze to death (Alexie, 2003). In the poem "Burial", those things and people that are important to the speakers grandmother are taken from her one at a time, as we see in the lines, "the stroke which claimed your right side,/the land you gave up when you remarried, /your grief over my grandfather’s passing," (Che, 2014). They each show how friends are lost to time. Time would rob of us our dignity, if we allow it.
