Abstract [en]

This study is a literary analysis of Bram Stoker's novel Dracula and Stephenie Meyer's novel Twilight. The purpose of this study is to analyse Bram Stoker's novel Dracula and try to arrive at what effects the author works with that has made the story to the classic it is. The study will also treat what properties his terror figure, the vampire Dracula, has been equipped with to be as fearsome as the reader has found him to be. The study of Dracula will take up the main part of the paper, but it will also include a comparison to a typical modern works such as "mass entertainment", Twilight. In the comparision part of the essay I’m going to study what of the classic vampire image that has been retained, and finally, I ask, what are the new elements that differ from the classic. The results demonstrated in this essay indicate that there are some similarities between the classic and the modern sequel. The major difference between these two effects is that classic contains many more parts of horror and terror than what the follower does.
