Dracula is one of old literary works written by Bram Stoker which got a lot of awards, Twilight written by Stephenie Meyer is also a literary work which got a lot of awards. This is a modern one. The writer compares the vampire within these two novels. Dracula was the first novel that tells about vampire creature. This novel was published in 1897 and it was the beginning of the other literary works which cover about vampire or Dracula.

Another literary work is Twilight, which was published in 2005. This novel also tells about vampire, but the author describes the vampire quite different from Stoker’s. In Twilight, the vampire is named Edward Cullen. He is a very gorgeous vampire. Meyer described her vampire out of people might think about before. There are several things which distinguish Edward and Count Dracula, for instance; their food. Despite, there are also some similarities of those two vampires. There are some problems which are discussed in this thesis. First is how the author described their own vampire in their novel.

Count Dracula and Edward Cullen have the similarity in the supernatural traits.
