Crossing the Vampire Tale Three

I received this from Seth Cohen. The author is unknown.

Has anyone else noticed the English chauvinism in the novel Dracula? Count Dracula and his Transylvanian wives are all portrayed as evil bloodsuckers, but the young English lady the Count transforms into one of the undead is depicted as a pitiable victim and not wicked, though she is preying on innocent young children.

This is because, in Victorian literary tradition, the sin never sets on the British vampire.
