Who: Colony High School
Where: Lewisville, Texas It was eliminated from required reading lists for juniors and seniors in advanced English classes.
Why: because "the book contains unacceptable descriptions in the introduction, such as 'Dracula is the symptom of a wish, largely sexual, that we wish we did not have."', and sexual references.
When the novel was first published, the Christian World praised it for its theme of good triumphing over evil, calling it "one of the most enthralling and unique romances ever written." However, many schools have removed it from their reading lists because of its erotic, sexual overtones. Stoker even stated in the Introduction that "Dracula is the symptom of a wish, largely sexual, that we wish we did not have." Maybe Dracula should bite Mina in the parlor instead of in her bedroom
