"Between me and the moonlight
flitted a great bat,
coming and going in great,
~Dracula Chapter VIII
This week I’ve been teaching Dracula to my Intro class. We’ve had a great time discussing various scenes that are particularly creepy.
Today I decided to interpret a scene with Heidi Daus brooches (the "Glowing Glamour" Chandelier Crystal Pin and the "Batty For You" Crystal Pin).
The character Lucy is alone at night and keeps being disturbed by this pesky bat flying into the window. The large bat shows up throughout the beginning of the novel and 2016 readers already presume that this is actually Dracula.
I’m a little early for the Fifth Annual Vampire's Day Soiree at Holly’s Horrorland but my love for vampires extends beyond just one soiree day! Consider this me getting ready for the party ;)
