Dracula vs Twilight: Forks vs the Carpathians
15 pages
Purpose
Rewrite analogous passages in Twilight and Dracula, each in the style of the other.
Description
In this lesson we do a systematic comparison of two passages from Bram Stoker's Dracula and Stephanie Meyer's Twilight. We look at processes, qualities, expansions and connective devices in both passages, and work up to rewriting each passage in the style of the other. The most interesting insight that comes for this lesson is the way that Stoker makes the environment an active agent in the scene.
