This project is about an analysis between two vampire stories, the novel, Dracula, by Bram Stoker and the TV series “True Blood” by Charlaine Harris. The work contains six main chapters, subdivided into sixteen parts: The first part is related to Bram Stoker’s life and his best works. Dracula (1897) brought Stoker fame and recognition. The second one analyses the influences on Dracula. Prince Vlad Tepes or Vlad “the Impaler” and Countess Elizabeth Bathory also known as the “Blood Countess”, or “Lady Dracula”, were real historical personages. At the close of this chapter, the Romantic Era (1820–1900), the legacy and influences of Dracula on other writers and on Hollywood movies will be also analyzed. The third chapter is an analysis of religious Victorian attitudes, medical practices, and Bram Stoker’s Dracula. The fourth section has to do with sexual attitudes in Victorian times and Bram Stoker’s Dracula. The penultimate chapter is about feminist attitudes in Victorian times and in Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Finally, the last chapter makes a comparison between Bram Stoker’s Dracula and the HBO TV series, “True Blood”. This comparison will be analyzed taking into account that several movies as well as TV series have been created based on Dracula.
