A Monster in the Midst: Dracula and Victorian Morality.
This essay analyses Bram Stoker's novel Dracula in the contexts of Victorian cultural and the social morality that dominated 19th century London. Stoker's novel is both a criticism of the effects of sexual repression, as well as an eroticized account of the necessity of moral virtue. Stoker portrays contradictory characters that are manifestations of perverse sexuality (homosexual, bisexual, promiscuous women) and contrasts these with morally virtuous persons who must confront the realms of seduction without succumbing. This essay explores how these encounters portray the loss of innocence in Victorian society, and also validate the moral superiority of purity. 6 pgs. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
