THEMES

Major Theme

This is almost like an epic poem. The theme in this case is of good versus evil. The evil has almost supernatural powers yet the good triumph over it. The good consists of ordinary men, god fearing and courageous. They are consistent in their effort to stamp out evil. In the end they triumph over evil even though the evil is very strong. This theme slowly and steadily gathers momentum until it becomes clearer in the end.


Minor Theme

The minor theme is of loyalty and bravery. All the protagonists are very loyal to the teachings of God. They are fiercely brave for they know in their triumph is God's triumph. The theme of bravery filters through the book as Jonathan Harker escape, Dracula's trap to Quincey Morris's death. Mina Harker is brave and loyal, though she knows that she is in the power of Dracula. Her willpower is immense. The theme of loyalty and bravery are akin to epic poems. Yet, in this case the protagonists are ordinary brave men, but the antagonist stands out almost like the devil.

MOOD

The mood is very action oriented. It escalates between terror to triumph. Jonathan Harker is terrified when he realizes he is in the clutches of Dracula. Then there is triumph when he escapes and marries Mina. Then Lucy becomes a vampire and the horror begins to end in triumph on her death. The protagonists hunt Dracula and kill him.
