Dracula is actually more complicated a novel than people expected it to be.

1) When Dracula brings Jonathan Harker to his place he hires him to procure a place for him. To what country does Dracula wish to travel?


2)  How many servants are in Count Dracula's when Jonathan is held prisoner?

None. Dracula even makes the bed.

3) Describe Mr. Renfield.

He is 59, has a sanguine temperament, great physical strength, a possibly dangerous man.

4)  Lucy's wounds on her neck disappear.  Van Helsing makes a statement.  What does he say?

"Mein Gott"  "Lucy is dying."

5)  In chapter 22, what shape did Dr. Steward and Dr. Van Helsing find Reinfield?

Reinfield was lying on the floor.  His face was bruised and crushed in and his neck was broken.
