    • GROUP 1: VAMPIRES, AN INTRODUCTION
    • VAMPIRES: AN INTRODUCTION
      • DEFINITION : Vampires are mythological or folkloric beings who subsist by feeding on the life essence (generally in the form of blood) of living creatures. In folkloric tales, vampires often visited loved ones and caused mischief or deaths in the
      • neighbourhoods they inhabited
      • when they were alive.
      Vampiren, by Edward Munch
    • VAMPIRES: AN INTRODUCTION
      • APPEARANCE : They wore shrouds and were often described as swollen
      • and with dark face.
      • This is markedly different from modern fictional portrayals of gaunt, pale vampires beginning in the early
      • 19th century.
      Vampire make-up
    • VAMPIRES: AN INTRODUCTION
      • HISTORY : Vampiric entities have been recorded in many cultures and the "belief in vampires and bloodsucking demons is as old as man himself".
      • However, the term vampire was not popularized until the early 18th century, after an influx of vampire superstition into Western Europe from areas where vampire legends were frequent, such as the Balkans and Eastern Europe,.
      • This increased level of vampire superstition in Europe led to mass hysteria and in some cases resulted in corpses actually being staked and people being accused of vampirism
    • VAMPIRES: AN INTRODUCTION
      • VAMPIRE FICTION :
        • The charismatic and sophisticated vampire of modern fiction was born in 1819 with the publication of The Vampyre by John Polidori.It was the most influential vampire work of the early 19th century.
        • However, it is Bram Stoker's 1897 novel Dracula that is remembered
        • as the quintessential vampire novel and which provided the basis
        • of modern vampire fiction. Dracula drew on earlier mythologies of werewolves and similar imaginary demons and "was to voice the anxieties of an age", and the "fears of late Victorian patriarchy".
        • The success of this book spawned a distinctive vampire genre, still popular in the 21st century, with books, films, video games, and television shows. The vampire is adominant figure in the horror genre.
    • HOW IS A VAMPIRE’S BODY?
      • EYES: Vampire’s pupils expand very much and they can see at night. The sun blinds vampires.
      • EARS: Vampires have big ears. They can find their way through sounds, just like bats!
      • TEETH: Vampire’s canine teeth are very, very long to bite their victim’s neck.
      • SKIN: very light and thin. They are very sensitive to sun radiation.
      • NAILS: They are hard and they keep growing. They let vampires break the skin of their victims and drink their blood quickly.
      • LUNGS: Vampires don’t breathe. They get oxygen from their victim’s blood.
      • MUSCLES: their muscular fibres are very elastic. They are very strong, too.
    • VAMPIRE CHARACTERISTICS
      • Vampires can convert into
      • insects, bats,rats or wolves.
      • The most mentioned in popular
      • culture is the bat form .
      • They don’t reflect in mirrors, they don’t have a shadow, maybe because they don’t have a soul.
    • VAMPIRE CHARACTERISTICS
      • Vampires’ demonic nature makes them hate christian
      • symbols. That’s why they run away when someone uses
      • a christian cross or holy water. They can’t go across
      • consecrated land such as churches.
      • They hate garlic and they are vulnerable to sunlight.
    • VAMPIRE CHARACTERISTICS
        • They are indestructible using common means and they
      • are extremely strong and fast, but they weaken next to
      • water currents
        • They have a natural affinity with magic, especially
      • with black magic and necromancy.
        • They feed on their victims’ blood.

    • GROUP 2: VAMPIRES IN HISTORY
    • VAMPIRES IN HISTORY
      • Some people drank blood for pleasure or
      • with magical purposes.
      • ELIZABETH BATHORY drank
      • blood in the 17th century
      • to keep eternal youth.
    • VAMPIRES IN HISTORY
        • PETER K ÜRTEN (1883-1931), the vampire of
        • Dusseldorf, drank animal or human blood
        • and he felt great
        • pleasure.
              • PRINCE VLAD DRACULA
              • “ The Impaler”
      • Vlad Dracula, later named Vlad the Impaler after his favourite form of torture, was a 15th century Romanian prince who ruled with an iron fist.
      • This infamous ruler controlled his subjects with such violence that he is now referred to as the bloodiest ruler in history .
      THE REAL DRACULA
    • Vlad was born in Transylvania in 1430 or 1431. His father, the warrior Vlad Dracul, was a member of a secret society of knights called the order of the Dragon. This society was formed to fight and defeat the Turks, as well as secure the throne of Wallachia (a town located in present-day Romania). Young Vlad was nicknamed Dracula after his father. In Romanian, Dracul translates to ‘dragon’ or ‘devil,’ and the ‘a’ stands for ‘son of.’ So Dracula literally translates to ‘son of the dragon’ or ‘son of the devil.’ THE REAL DRACULA: VLAD THE IMPALER
    • In 1444 Dracul was travelling with Dracula and his youngest son across the Danube River when they were captured by the Turks. Dracula was imprisoned for four years. These years are thought to be the beginning of Vlad Dracula’s violent nature. It wasn’t long before Dracul was assassinated and Dracula’s brother was buried alive by the Ruler of Hungary, Jamos Hunyadi. Fearful for his life, Dracula joined Hunyadi who taught him cunning and severe military tactics that would soon secure Dracula the throne of Wallachia. THE REAL DRACULA: VLAD THE IMPALER
    • As Prince, Vlad Dracula continued to battle the Turks. Those taken hostage were impaled (a large pole was driven through their body). But it was not only Dracula’s enemies who suffered. Many townspeople were also subject to his wrath. Woodcut of Vlad surrounded by his victims THE REAL DRACULA: VLAD THE IMPALER
    • One story tells of Dracula noticing a peasant man who was wearing a shirt that was too short. When Dracula asked the man’s wife why the man was improperly dressed,she said she was too busy cooking and cleaning to sew. She was immediately impaled. Graciously, Dracula chose a new wife for the man. He made sure to show the new wife what had happened to the old so that she would not make the same mistake. THE REAL DRACULA: VLAD THE IMPALER
      • Dracula died in battle in 1476. He was promptly
      • decapitated by order of the Turkish sultan.
      • His head was then sent to the sultan who
      • displayed it, fittingly, on a stake for all
      • to see. He is buried in front of the altar
      • of the Church of Snagov Monastery .
      THE REAL DRACULA: VLAD THE IMPALER
    • Although gone, rumors of Vlad Dracula and his relentless temper spread throughout Europe. Stories of his villainy were published, read, and reread and it was these stories that led Bram Stoker to create the infamous Count Dracula we know today. The BRAN CASTLE, near Brasov is said to be one of Dracula’s residences. It can be visited by tourists. Do you want to have a look? DRACULA’S CASTLE THE REAL DRACULA: VLAD THE IMPALER

    • GROUP 4 VAMPIRES IN LITERATURE: BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA (I)
    • VAMPIRES IN LITERATURE: BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA
              • The most famous vampire in literature appeared in 1897.
              • That year the Irish writer BRAM STOKER published his novel Dracula. It made Vlad the Impaler famous worldwide.
    • BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA
          • Stoker read the stories about Dracula printed
          • In the 15th-16th centuries. He was surprised
          • by his acts of cruelty and decided to make him
          • his character. He also read some books about
          • Transylvania and thought that this "exotic”
          • land would be a proper setting for Dracula.
          • Dracula’s qualities: he is immortal. He has got
          • supernatural powers and he drinks human
          • blood!
    • COMPARISON: VLAD VS COUNT DRACULA VLAD DRACUL COUNT DRACULA
    • COMPARISON: VLAD VS COUNT DRACULA
      • Stoker used Vlad only as a source of
      • inspiration. In his novel, Dracula is not prince
      • Vlad the Impaler, but a Transylvanian count
      • living in a mysterious castle where he lured his
      • victims. His story takes place in the Bistritza
      • area, and the castle lies near the Carpathian
      • Mountains. As Stoker had never visited
      • Transylvania, most places and happenings were
      • pure fiction.
    • ABOUT THE AUTHOR
      • BRAM STOKER: LIFE
      • He was born in Dublin in 1847.
      • After finishing university there
      • he worked for the government.
      • He married a Dublin girl. Stoker
      • was very interested in the theatre and in 1878 he
      • moved to London, where he became the manager of a
      • famous actor. Together they ran the sucessful Lyceum
      • Theatre in London. He died in 1912.
    • BRAM STOKER
      • BRAM STOKER: WORKS
      • His novel Dracula was published in 1897.
      • There have been stories about vampires in
      • Eastern Europe for a very long time. Stoker,
      • who worked on his noveL for four years,
      • probably knew about these stories. He said
      • that the Dracula story came to him in a
      • nightmare one night after a large dinner of
      • crab meat.
    • BRAM STOKER
      • BRAM STOKER: CONCLUSION
      • Stoker is often called “the least-known author
      • of the best-Known book”. He wrote many
      • other books, but it is because of Dracula that
      • we remember him today.
      • There have been many films about Count
      • Dracula and the book, which has never been
      • out of print, is as popular today as it was a
      • hundred years ago.

    • GROUP 5 VAMPIRES IN LITERATURE: BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA (II)
    • CHARACTER STUDY
      • COUNT DRACULA - A centuries-old vampire and Transylvanian nobleman, Count Dracula inhabits a crumbling castle in the Carpathian Mountains. Beneath a veneer of aristocratic charm, the count possesses a dark and evil soul. He can assume the form of an animal, control the weather, and he is stronger than twenty men. His powers are limited, however—for instance, he cannot enter a victim’s home unless invited, cannot cross water unless carried, and is rendered powerless by daylight.
      • Read an in-depth analysis of Count Dracula.
    • CHARACTER STUDY
      • JONATHAN HARKER - A solicitor, or lawyer, whose firm sends him to Transylvania to conclude a real estate transaction with Dracula. Young and naïve, Harker quickly finds himself a prisoner in the castle and barely escapes with his life. He demonstrates a fierce curiosity to discover the true nature of his captor and a strong will to escape. Later, after becoming convinced that the count has moved to London, Harker emerges as a brave and fearless fighter.
    • CHARACTER STUDY
      • MINA MURRAY - Jonathan Harker’s fiancée. Mina is a practical young woman who works as a schoolmistress. Eventually victimized by Dracula herself, Mina is also the best friend of the count’s first victim in the novel, Lucy Westenra. Mina is in many ways the heroine of the novel, embodying purity, innocence, and Christian faith—virtues she maintains despite her suffering at the vampire’s hands. She is intelligent and resourceful, and her research leads Van Helsing’s men to Castle Dracula.
      Read an in-depth analysis of Mina Murray .
    • CHARACTER STUDY
      • LUCY WESTENRA - Mina’s best friend and an attractive, vivacious young woman. The first character in the novel to fall under Dracula’s spell, Lucy becomes a vampire, which compromises her much-praised chastity and virtue, and banishes her soul from the promise of eternal rest. Determined that such an end is unfit for an English lady of Lucy’s caliber, Van Helsing’s crew hunts down the demon she has become and kills it, following the rituals of vampire slaying, and thus restoring Lucy’s soul to her body and to heaven.
      • Read an in-depth analysis of Lucy Westenra.
    • CHARACTER STUDY
      • VAN HELSING - A Dutch professor, described by his former pupil Dr. Seward as “a philosopher and metaphysician, and one of the most advanced scientists of his day.” Called upon to cure the ailing Lucy Westenra, Van Helsing’s contributions are essential in the fight against Dracula. Unlike his comrades, Van Helsing is not blinded by the limitations of Western medicine: he knows that he faces a force that cannot be treated with traditional science and reason. Knowledgeable about vampire folklore, Van Helsing becomes Dracula’s chief antagonist and the leader of the group that hunts Dracula down and destroys him.
      • Read an in-depth analysis of Van Helsing.
    • CHARACTER STUDY
      • JOHN SEWARD - A talented young doctor, formerly Van Helsing’s pupil. Seward is the administrator of an insane asylum not far from Dracula’s English home. Throughout the novel, Seward conducts ambitious interviews with one of his patients, Renfield, in order to understand better the nature of life-consuming psychosis. Although Lucy turns down Seward’s marriage proposal, his love for her remains, and he dedicates himself to her care when she suddenly takes ill. After her death, he remains dedicated to fighting the count.
    • CHARACTER STUDY
      • ARTHUR HOLMWOOD - Lucy’s fiancé and a friend of her other suitors. Arthur is the son of Lord Godalming and inherits that title upon his father’s death. In the course of his fight against Dracula’s dark powers, Arthur does whatever circumstances demand: he is the first to offer Lucy a blood transfusion, and he agrees to kill her demonic form.
