Firstly, try not to panic. This will be okay.

Secondly, can you map the plot of Dracula over the chapters? Where might the aspect of villainy be most prominent in the plot do you think?
An easy one is when we first meet Dracula.

Could you explain what you mean by "find context"?

In a level english literature by context i mean historical facts for example dracula is from transylvania which links to the eastern cultural whom believe in supernatural monstrous and are seen as more rebellious in comparison to the West who are more religious and pure. This links to orintalism.

Thank you. So you've provided some context already there - when talking about the context of the setting. What about the context of its writing?
At what time was the novel written? Had Edward Said's work on Orientalism been published by that point?

See the question is a compare and contrast question: ‘The most fascinating character in gothic fiction is the villain.

And do you want help in how to answer the question or help in establishing quotes and contexts.

quotes and context
Yes, and the advice so far has been about investigating the context of when the book is written, mapping the plot of the novel over its chapters and identifying key scenes to do with villainy from that. The advice has also been to seek out extracts where villainous characters are introduced to the reader.

Is there anything else I can help you with?
