Northanger Abbey

One day, the Allens, a wealthy, childless couple offered to take Catherine with them on a trip. "Would you like to come to Bath with us, Catherine?" asked Mrs Allen. Of course Catherine wanted to go because her life had been quite sheltered until that moment. Bath was a resort for the wealthier members of British society, so it was a new world for Catherine. The life there differed from the one back at home. "How uncomfortable it is," whispered Catherine, "not to have a single acquaintance here" "Yes, my dear," replied Mrs. Allen, with perfect serenity, "it is very uncomfortable indeed." In Bath, Catherine met a young clergyman Henry Tilney. "Have you been long in Bath, madam?" "About a week," replied Catherine, trying not to laugh. "Really!" with affected...

''Dracula'' analüüs

The story ends with a note from Jonathan, written seven years after. The novel has 27 chapters. All the chapters are journals of characters. Also the book has ten pages of notes which are explanations of different places, names and expressions. ‘’Dracula’’ has cathegorised under many different genres of literature – vampire literature, horror fiction, gothic novel and invasion literature. For me it is mostly horror fiction, although I find this more as a fantasy literature or thriller. I do not think there is something really horrifying but there is the excitement of what is going to happen next. In my opinion, ‘’Dracula’’ is a story about the good and the evil. People in England are trying to save their country, even the world, from the evil...
