Dracula Bookmarks

Targoviste - between myth and reality


Centuries ago, Vlad Tepes, a Romanian prince, became well known in Europe because of his bloody habit, impaling. For this reason, people called him Vlad the Impaler. One of the favourite cities to express this bloody wish, was Targoviste. That’s why, Vlad the Impaler has been associated with Dracula, and Targoviste as one of Dracula’s house.
How does it look Targoviste nowadays?

A very quiet town, the only army that makes noise is for the celebration of the town.

Αιώνες πριν, γράφουν οι Ρουμάνοι συνεργάτες μας, ένας αιμοσταγής ηγεμόνας της Βλαχίας, ο Βλαντ Τέπες, ήταν διαβόητος στην Ευρώπη για τη συνήθειά του να ανασκολοπίζει τους εχθρούς του. Ένα από τα κάστρα του, το κάστρο του Δράκουλα βρίσκεται στην πόλη μας, Ταργκοβίστε, σήμερα μια ήσυχη επαρχιακή πόλη. Ο μόνος στρατός που παρελαύνει είναι οι κάτοικοι κατά τις τοπικές γιορτές.

"Demeter" is the name of the ship with which Dracula travelled from Romania to England, in a most thrilling story within a story!

Πρόκειται για τη θεά των Ελευσινίων μυστηρίων που δίδαξε την καλλιέργεια του σίτου και έδωσε ελπίδα για τη μεταθανάτια ζωή στους θνητούς!

Dracula's influence. Part 4. Filmography

The most recent Vampire hit is Twilight, based on Stephenie Meyer's novel. Have you seen it? Please add your summary, links and comment. The Library suggests The Internet Movie Database (imdb), where you can read all about it!

Στα πλαίσια της επιρροής του μύθου του Δράκουλα, παρακολουθήσαμε και σχολιάσαμε την ταινία Λυκόφως, βασισμένης στο ομώνυμο βιβλίο της Στέφανι Μέγιερ. Ακόμα ένα ισχυρό σύμβολο της εφηβείας, της θυσίας, της φιλίας, της πίστης. Το μοιραστήκαμε με τους Ρουμάνους. Πατήστε εδώ για πρόσφατο άρθρο στον Αθηναϊκό τύπο!

Hi! I'm Eleni Regou from Elefsina.. I'm studing for my university exams but I keep an eye on this blog! I watched ''Twilight'' and I've loved it! It was really amazing! There were many things that impressed me like how much Edward love Bella but how much, the same time, he was scared of dont hurt her... Also Bella was in love with him although he was a vampire..! Phrases that stuck in my mind was:

-Isabella Swan: About three things I was absolutely positive. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominate that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

-Edward Cullen: [to Bella, while in a tree] "You're like a drug to me. Like my own personal brand of heroine."

All this love, all this passion... I hope that it can really exist... :-)

Twilight astoudw the audience from the very first time.It is amazing how it derists LOVE!!!
The scene where Bella asks Edward to bite her so that they be together always is ausome!The sacrifice shows real love.The fact that Edward refuses also shows his deep feeling!!!
A question for you:Why did Edward and his "family" have to wait the rain to play baseball???

In this week-end i saw Twilight.First ,when i heard the word "vampire" i wasn't so convince to see it.But i decided to sacrifice because the main actor is so GOOOOD :D..and my weekend became "tru".
i don't like very much the unreal stories (with vampires,ghosts...) but i adore the love stories.
Twilight is an emotional film because it join on the same stage two things different: the good and the evil,a human and a vampire.
The scene-key of "Twilight" ,i thought is the next dialogue: "Edward: And so the lion fell in love with the lamb.
Bella: What a stupid lamb.
Edward: What a sick, masochistic lion."

In conclusion this film proove us that impossible love is the most beautiful love in the world.Probably,more beautiful than the blue eyes of Dorian Gray ;))

Το twilight ήταν μια φανταστική ταινία Ιδιαίτερη εντύπωση μου έκανε το βλέμμα του πρωταγωνιστή και οι σκηνές όπου ο Edwards δείχνει στην Bella τον κόσμο του. Εντύπωση μου έκανε η προσαρμογή της ηρωίδας σε ένα νέο περιβάλλον. Ο ρεαλισμός και η αληθοφάνεια της ταινίας μας έκανε να ταυτιστούμε με τους ήρωες.
Ακόμα , μου άρεσε που ενώ όλοι θέλουμε να ζήσουμε για πάντα ο Edward που είχε αυτό το χάρισμα ευχόταν το αντίθετο. aris
