Clasen, Mathias. “Attention, Predation, Counterintuition: Why Dracula Won’t Die.” Style, vol. 46, no. 3–4, 2012, pp. 378–398. JSTOR, www.jstor.org/stable/10.5325/style.46.3-4.378. Accessed 13 Feb. 2021.

The author analyzes many different topics of the book such as themes that seem to be counterintuitive, Victorian cultural norms and examining Dracula’s character from. a biological standpoint. The reception of the novel throughout the generations following its release was also a prominent theme in the paper. The one that is most applicable to me is the author’s examination of Dracula from a biological standpoint. I never noticed how traits typically observed in monsters in the horror genre are characteristics of real life predatory animals. This article will be useful in my examination of The character of Dracula from a biological standpoint.
