520    John C. Altmann decides whether Dracula can really be 
       blamed for his crimes, since it's his nature as a vampire 
       to behave a certain way. Robert Arp argues that Dracula's 
       addiction to live human blood dooms him to perpetual 
       frustration and misery. John V. Karavitis sees Dracula as 
       a Randian individual pitted against the Marxist 
       collective. Greg Littmann maintains that if we disapprove 
       of Dracula's behavior, we ought to be vegetarians. James 
       Edwin Mahon uses the example of Dracula to resolve nagging
       problems about the desirability of immortality. Adam 
       Barkman and Michael Versteeg ponder what it would really 
       feel like to be Dracula, and thereby shed some light on 
       the nature of consciousness. Robert Vuckovich looks at the
       sexual morality of Dracula and other characters in the 
       Dracula saga. Ariane de Waal explains that "Dragula" is 
       scary because every time this being appears, it causes 
       "gender trouble." And Cari Callis demonstrates that the 
       Count is really the Jungian Shadow archetype--with added 
       Shapeshifter elements--in the journey of Mina Harker, 
       heroine/victim of Stoker's novel, from silly girl to 
       empowered woman.
