"Robert Pattinson today scooped our title of GLAMOUR.COM's 50 Sexiest Men for the second year in a row - and it looks like you ladies just can't get enough of vampires, as Twilight and Vampire Diaries stars make up our Top 5! Classic hotties like Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp
and David Beckham were usurped from the top slots as R-Patz and Taylor Lautner took places one and two respectively, whilst Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder, and Twilight's Xavier Samuel and Kellan Lutz completed the celebrated top five." By Jessica David T

"Dracula's Guest" Considered by many critics as originally intended to be the opening chapter of Dracula.This view is in keeping with Florence Stokers Preface to the posthumous 1914 edition of Stokers short stories she edited. Context: - Similarities with Sheridan Le Fanus Carmilla - Emily Gerads 1888 travelogue The Land Beyond the Forest - Dracula, Jonathan Harkers diary
"Dracula's Guest": Structure Circular: three textual segments I segment +coda : daylight, Munich hotel, hotelier. II segment : night, countryside III segment + coda : daylight, Munich hotel, hotelier. I: Emergence of the Fantastic II : extrinsication, outward manifestation of the Fantastic. Climax. III: Breakdown of the Fantastic
Rationality vs. Fantastic The discourse of nationalism. English vs German.[...] he jabbered away in his native German. It began to be a little tedious. The discourse of religion. Rationality vs superstition. Walpurgis-nacht doesn't concern Englishmen. Travelogue vs Fantastic: The ground I passed over was now much more picturesque. There were no striking objects that the eye might single out; but in all there was a charm of beauty. Regression and "manimalisation":wolf and man overlap. Role of time: Johanns clock andWalpurgis Nacht Role of weather. Used to explain concept of pathetic fallacy Role of sensoriality: sight, hearing, taste. Sensorial overcodificadion. Chromatic isotopes: RED (lips, mouth, sunlight, lightning) andWHITE (tomb, moonlight, snow, teeth, hailstones, shroud) Textual functions: desire. Invitation, curiosity, will.
The Fantastic and Language: climax. Comparatives: Darker and darker grew the sky, and faster and heavier fell the snow Iterative rhetoric: anaphora, cola,anadiplosis. This wasWalpurgis Night!Walpurgis Night, when, according to the belief of millions of people,the devil was abroad, when the graves were opened and the dead came forth and walked. When all evil things of earth and air and water held revel. This very place the driver had specially shunned. This was the depopulated village of centuries ago.This was where the suicide lay; and this was the place where I was alone --unmanned*, shivering with cold in a shroud of snow with a wild storm gathering again upon me! It took all my philosophy , all the religion I had been taught, all my courage, not to collapse in a paroxysm of fright.
*unmanned [OED second ed. 1989] unassisted; devoid of courage, made weak or timid To unman:To reduce below the level of man; to degrade, brutalize to deprive of virility, to emasculate Unmanly: Dishonourable or degrading to a man Adjective connected with construction "UN-dead" and with sentence The whole thing was so sudden that, before I could realise the shock, moral as well as physical , I found the hailstones beating me down.
The Fantastic and language: hesitation and uncertainty Verbs: to seem and to appear Adjectives: mysterious, strange, weird Adverbs: seemingly a sort of ", but yet" The collapse of limits/the collapse of the known: as of // as though . as of many dogs or wolves; The ground shook as though thousands of horses thundered across it ; I was grasped as by the hand of a giant; as in a burst of flame.
