    Ok, so basically I'm trying to do a Marxist reading of Bram Stoker's Dracula.

    But I'm kind of stuck on just what Dracula would represent in such a reading. In my reading, blood = labour - Dracula needs live labour, i.e. fresh blood, to survive.

    But I'm debating whether Dracula is a monopolising capitalist, or just an aristocrat who belongs in an antiquated feudal system, as opposed to late 19th Century England.

    Dracula believes his heritage makes him superior to others, which makes me think he's an aristocrat, but the fact that he "converts" others makes me think he's not?
