Essay Topics

Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

Throughout the novel, Stoker presents very strict, complicated ways of killing vampires -- and yet Dracula's own death doesn't seem to abide by these rules. Write an essay that addresses this complicated ending and what experience it leaves the reader with at the conclusion of the novel.

Essay Topic 2

The tone of "Dracula" can often be described as dark, tense, and foreboding. Discuss what a tone like this does to the reader and three literary devices Stoker uses throughout the text to create such a consistent tone.

Essay Topic 3

Pick two seemingly minor characters in the novel (such as Renfield and Mr. Swales) and discuss how Stoker uses them in at least three ways to contribute to the novel.
