The important part was that all his characters were up to date in regard to the gadgets for communication they used. For example, Jack Seward uses a phonograph to record his diary (Stoker 88). Phonographs were early devices for recording. These high-tech gadgets strongly contrasted with the ancient traditions and superstitions that surrounded Dracula... Number]...

Society discerns everything as good or bad, right or wrong, rich or poor. Even though such labels may be correct in some situations, many are misconceived and false. For example, the monster has an intrinsic need to be accepted by society, but is instead scorned, attacked, and shunned due to his external features. This treatment is based solely on the notion that he is, in fact, a monster. At the same time, Victor Frankenstein, the human doctor who created the monster, is...
