"We have finally done it we killed Dracula" said Quincey. Jonathon was determined to escape. Arthur, Abraham, Jonathan, and Quincey are determined to kill Dracula. In order to get out of the Count's castle Jonathan thinks of three things survival, escaping and kill the Count for trapping him in the castle. "I can't die I have to get out, I have to end his rain of terror, he can`t get away with what he did to me" said Jonathan.
By killing Dracula, he saves his companions as well as the society as a whole. D. In How to Read Literature like a Professor, Thomas C. Foster declares that the essentials of a vampire story are, “A nasty old man, attractive but evil, violates young women, leaves his mark on them, steals their innocence” (16). Foster adds that there needs to be “…a continuance of the life force of the old male; the death or destruction of the young woman” (19). 1. With his thirst for blood, a nasty old man who steals young women’s innocence, and benefits from that is the perfect portrayal of Dracula, making him the diabolic villain.
He got revenge by forcing Mina to drink his blood. By drinking Dracula’s blood, Mina became at risk for becoming a member of the Un-dead. As the Count was leaving the Harker’s room, the other men, Dr. Seward, Dr. Van Helsing, Quincey, and Arthur, saw the remaining mist slip out beneath the door. Traveling as mist allowed Dracula to evade capture after terrorizing
He possessed the power to hypnotize and control his victims, as he controlled Mina when he forced her to drink his blood (Stoker, 1897/2001). He lives with three beautiful female vampires in his castle, but their relationship to the Count is not clarified in the book. In chapter 3, when they are scolded by the Count for attacking Harker, they taunt him that he does not love, Dracula responds that “Yes, I too can love; you yourselves can tell it from the past” (Stoker 1897/2001; pp. 39). Although they exist in the castle and are fed by the count as noted in Jonathan’s diary entry, Dracula has no apparent interest in them.
But he ends up finding out that the count is actually a vampire and flees. As Dracula the vampire successfully reach London, he transforms Lucy, a friend of Harker¡¯s fianc¨¦e Mina, into a vampire whom her fianc¨¦ finally has to destroy with the help of a knowledgeable professor Van Helsing. The men decide to hunt down the vampire as Harker joins them. Unfortunately, Mina is attacked and begins to change into a vampire slowly as they succefully track down the boxes the count uses as sanctuary at night. They sterilize the boxes, forcing the count back to Transylvania.
The evil character Count Dracula is a vampire who wants to move to London and turn everyone into vampires. To demolish his plan Jonathan Harker, Mina Murray, Arthur Holmwood, Dr. Seward, Quincey P. Morris and Dr. Abraham Van Helsing come out and put an end to his world domination. “Is that the end of Dracula? We will never know” (Har-el). Bibliography: Works Cited Lidston, Robert.

It makes a lot of sense that Lucy Westerna was the Count’s first victim in the book of which we are fu... ... middle of paper ... ...forced stay at the castle Dracula. The Count takes away Lucy from Arthur, Dr. Seward, and Quincy, and towards the end of the book almost manages to take away Mina from all of them, but is unsuccessful. Dracula is a lonely immortal, who reminds me to a certain extent of Lenny from Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men. He yearns for companionship, but destroys everything he picks for a companion, turning it into something dark and evil. Dracula’s ultimate demise is momentous for all characters involved.
The other victim stated before is Mina, who is innocent and married to Jonathan Harker. Dracula goes to hunt her and Jonathan, and when he sees them he makes Mina drink blood from his chest and makes her a victim. Mina is the real victim in this novel because of her past by displaying the values of a Victorian woman more than Lucy. The theme of good versus evil is apparent throughout the whole novel and is the main theme of the book. Dracula represents all evil in the novel and has become a main villain in many other novels and movies.
This eventually leads Van Helsing to recognize the bond between Mina Harker and the Count, which helps them to find Dracula and finally kill him. Dracula’s invasion over Renfield also reveals a weakness in the Counts power. Renfield, an obedient servant of Dracula, claims he is ‘here to do Your bidding, Master. I am Your slave’ (Stoker, 88). Renfield’s devotion is quickly reversed when he sees that the Count is taking life from Mina.
