Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:
Essay Topic 1
Write a paper that critically examines what happens to Lucy in the novel. Is her murder justified? Could her death even be considered a murder? Was it the only option? Was it an act of love or an act of despair -- or both? Would you have done the same thing to her? Would you have wanted your life to end the way hers did?
Essay Topic 2
Why does Stoker choose Lucy to die as a result of Dracula's bite instead of Mina? Give at least three reasons for his choice, making sure to use direct evidence from the text to support your argument.
Essay Topic 3
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.
