Bram Stoker, Dracula
Jonathan Harker arrived at the Golden Krone Hotel when the land lady gave him a crucifix to protect him. The next day Jonathan took a public coach to the Borgo Pass where he met the Count’s coach. The driver of this coach was very strange: he had very red eyes and pointed teeth. The journey in the coach was like a nightmare. The driver sometimes stopped the coach when he saw faint blue flame. Finally the driver of the coach left Jonathan in front of the door of the Count’s castle. Just then a tall old man with a long white moustache opened the door. This strange old man was Count Dracula. At first they talked about the old estate that Dracula was buying in England, but certain strange things began to happen. For example, one morning Jonathan could not see the Count’s reflection in the mirror. When the Count saw that Jonathan had some blood on his chin from a cut, the Count tried to grab his throat. Fortunately, Jonathan had the crucifix around his neck. After this event he realised he was a prisoner. Also the Count warned him not to fall asleep in other parts of the castle. But he disobeyed the Count, and he fell asleep in a room where noble women had once lived. There, three women appeared who did not cast shadows in the moonlight. They came close to Jonathan and one of them was about to kiss his throat with her lips. Just then Dracula appeared and grasped the neck of the woman, and pulled her away. Jonathan realised that Dracula was going to kill him, and that he was some kind of monster. In fact, Jonathan found the Count lying in a box in the chapel. Jonathan realised that he was helping to bring that monster to London. He picked up a shovel and tried to hit Dracula, but the Count blocked him with some magical power of this eyes. He ran out of the vault. Later the Count’s box going away. Jonathan decided to escape by climbing down the wall of the castle.
After Mina’s best friend Lucy came to visit her in the town of Whitby, many strange things happened. For example one night Mina found Lucy on a bench with something black with red eyes bending over Lucy’s body. After that night, Lucy became increasingly ill. Arthur called Dr Seward for help, and he called his friend Van Helsing from Holland. At first van Helsing did not express his opinion on Lucy’s situation. He said that he had to return to Amsterdam first. When Lucy’s situation became extremely bad, Dr Seward telegraphed Van Helsing and asked him to come back immediately. Van Helsing came and performed a blood transfusion on Lucy. Finally, one morning Dr Seward and Van Helsing arrived at Lucy’s home and they found Lucy’s mother dead on Lucy’s bed and Lucy almost dead. After yet another blood transfusion, Lucy told that a wolf had broken through the window, and she died. After Lucy’s death, many little children started to disappear. When they returned home they had punctures on their necks and they told of the “bloofer lady”. Van Helsing tried to explain to Dr Seward who the bloofer lady really was, but he did not want to accept the horrible truth. So, Van Helsing took him to the graveyard. The first night they went there Lucy’s coffin was empty. The second time they went Lucy was in her coffin. Then Van Helsing explained that they had to destroy the vampire that the real Lucy could be free. He also said that Arthur had to do it. So, Arthur, Dr Seward and Van Helsing went to the graveyard to wait for Lucy. When Arthur saw Lucy he accepted to kill her. They went into the tomb; Van Helsing gave Arthur a hammer and a stake. Arthur put the stake over Lucy’s heart and hit it. Then they could see that the vampire in her had been destroyed.
After Lucy’s death they started to look for the boxes, but while they were looking, Dracula came to the lunatic asylum to suck Mina’s blood. The only person who knew about this was Renfield and he now liked Mina. So, Renfield tried to prevent Dracula from coming into the asylum but one night Dracula attacked Renfield and almost killed him. When the men returned to the asylum that night, Renfield told them how Dracula had entered in the asylum. The men then ran immediately to Mina’s room. When they entered room, Mina was drinking blood from a cut in the Count’s chest. The Count disappeared when the men walked towards him holding the Sacred Wafer and silver crucifixes. After that the men continued looking for the boxes of earth, but now Van Helsing tried to protect Mina by touching her forehead with the Sacred Wafer burn her. Then one morning before the dawn Mina called Van Helsing to her room. She told him that he must hypnotise her so she could enter into the Dracula’s mind. She told them that she could hear the lapping of water. This was how they knew that the Count was on a ship called the Czarina Catherine which was going to the port of Varna. They took a train to Varna, but when they arrived they discovered that Dracula tricked them. The ship had gone to another port called Galatz. And the Count’s box was now on a boat going up a river. So, Van Helsing and Mina went in a carriage to the castle; Arthur and Jonathan went in a steam launch up the river; and Quincey and Dr Seward followed on horses on the banks of the river. Mina and Van Helsing arrived first at the Count’s castle. Van Helsing went into the castle and found the graves of the three vampire women. He then drove a stake through their hearts. When he had finished the Count’s wagon was arriving with a group of armed men. Then they saw their friends arriving on horseback. When the Dracula’s wagon was near them, they heard their friends shout “halt”. They all raced up to the Count’s wagon. There was a fight with the Count’s men, and Quincey was hurt. They threw the box to the ground and pulled off the lid. In that moment, the sun was going down, but just then Jonathan cut through the Count’s throat and Quincey stabbed the Count in the heart. The Count’s body then turned to dust.
