Dracula 8.0分
读书笔记 chapter18


The vampire live on, and cannot die by mere passing of the time, he can flourish when that he can fatten on the blood of the living. Even more, we have seen amonst us that he can even grow younger, that his vital faculties grow strenuous, and seem as though they refresh themselves when his special pabulum is plenty.
He throws no shadow, he make in the mirror no reflect. He has the strength of many of his hand....He can transform himself to wolf....he can be as bat...
He can come in mist which he create....the distance he can make this mist is limited, an it can only be round himself
He come on moonlight rays as elemental dust...He can, when once he find his way, come out from anything or into anything, no matter how close it be bound or even fused up with fire.... He can see in the dark....
He may not enter anywhere at first, unless there be some one of the household who bid him to come, though afterwards he can come as he please. His power ceases, as does that of all evil things, at the coming of the day.
If he be not at the place whiter he is bound, he can only change himself at noon or at exact sunrise or sunset...Thus, whereas he can do as he will within his limit, when he have his earth-home, his coffin-home, his hell-home, the place unhallowed..... still at other time he can only change when the time come. .....he can only pass running water at the slack or the flood of the tide. There are things which so afflict him that he has no power, as the garlic that we know of, and as for things sacred, as this symbol, my crucifix.....

The branch of wild rose on his coffin keep him that he move not from it, a sacred bullet fired into the coffin kill him so that he be true dead, and for the stake through him, we know already of its peace, or the cut off head that giveth rest.
