Transcript of Dracula and Earnest in Comparison

Earnest "inspires absolute confidence" The women in the reading are so enthalled in the name of Earnest that they almost see nothing else of their men except for the "made up" name of Earnest. Social Class Victorian Era Both readings were centered around very wealthy and high class individuals who had access to the tools necessary to do whatever they want. Everything was done in a proper manner with a good bit of thought. Social Class and Wealth =Boredom Jonathan Harker wants excitement in Real estate and to travel.
Jack and Algernon create a "Bunbury" to get away and create excitement without concequences.
Dr. Van Helsing and company want to track down and kill Dracula by any means and any lengths. They have the resources to travel and access to equipment.
