Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, Technical University of Chemnitz, language: English, abstract: When Abraham «Bram» Stoker wrote his novel Dracula between 1890 and 1897, he chose his characters wisely. The horror novel contains eight main characters, only two of them female. The remaining six male figures all play a special role and fulfil a certain stereotype. It is the aim of this paper to display these roles and show how the characters stand in contrast or even resemble each other. Another factor to be analysed is how we get to know the characters in novel. Are they describing themselves ? Do we learn about their traits through their actions ? Or do other characters tell us how they usually behave ?
