Idk I’ve started Dracula from chapter 1 but here is some analysis

Harker is seen to be British from “train was an hour late” which is a British thing to say
Borgopass is path where west goes to Eastern Europe- this means there is a clash between the cultures and the religion
Harker is seen to be orientalist (western attitudes towards the east) to make the west more superior - “the women looked pretty, except when you got near them”
Harker admires the Slovaks -homoerotic - harker becomes more feminine to the east and his masculinity gets more challenged but he is able to express more of himself than when he was in a Victorian society
Disgust to the elderly woman - “almost too tight for modesty”
Takes a cross from the elderly woman even though he is a Protestant - changing religion?
Starting to feel uneasy of superstitions - Identity changing?
