Dracula: themes

Over the years, many themes have been ascribed to Bram Stoker’s Dracula, including feminism, especially the place of women in Victorian times; sexuality; immigration; the struggle among folklore, science and religion; and social and economic class struggles.

Are there any scenes from the book or aspects of the characters that stand out in your mind as illustrating any of these themes?

What do you believe are the most pressing themes in the book?
