From the Paper:

"Mary Shelly's Frankenstein and Bram Stoker's Dracula both express views on the nature of good and evil. The authors use point of view as a device to establish plot and tell the story. Frankenstein and Dracula also both use the themes of dangerous science and redeeming religion. These warnings against science make the books not just shocking horror stories, but stories meant to teach the reader something about how to live. The character of Dracula is in every way evil. He is both tricky and wise, and his appearance is intimidating and frightening. Harker describes Dracula: "His eyes were positively blazing. The red light in them was lurid, as if the flames of hellfire blazed behind them" (Stoker 40). The counts actions are also undeniably evil; immediately following his description of the count, Harker tells of how the count feeds a live, human baby to three vampire women."
