Vampires are Really Complicated
Gloria Onyekwere & Briana Farias Period 2
Suppression of Women (Gloria)
Like most novels written by men, Dracula appeals more to the male audience and fantasy. Firstly, it is more than apparent that there are strong themes of female sexuality and its symbolism. The entire Victorian culture revolves around the suppression of women and their belittlement is evident in several scenes and events throughout the novel closing with an ultimate "moral" of the story regarding these "New Victorian" views. In addition, only a subtle factor of how grudgingly a woman’s reputation influences a man’s judgment and leaves very little room for superstition is addressed.
