In “Dracula”, many characters contribute themselves to documenting every incident by using different means of record and keep emphasizing the importance of record in the midst of such a mystery. In relation to the pervasive power that doubt exercises over various characters, the act of recording serves its role to support and prove the rationality of characters. Especially, the documents help Jonathan and Mina to dispose their self-doubt and worries. Before organizing a group to defeat Dracula, what suffers Jonathan the most is his self-doubt about his experience in Transylvania and the fear of being regarded as a madman. So he decides not to share his experience even to the his spouse and seal his diary into secrecy. However, by keeping himself away from the diary, he just left his problem uncured and thus cross again with the predicament. Finally, it is that Jonathan determines to openly discuss the issue and share his record when the problem of Jonathan see possibilities of solution. Among various phrases of emphasis on the significance of recording, the statement of Dr. Van Helsing, a figure who keeps saving other characters from the doubt and irrationalities, can be used as a evidence to support the role of record throughout the text. In conversation with Dr. Seward, Van Helsing notes that “knowledge is stronger than memory, and we should not trust the weaker. (…) Take then good note of it. Nothing is too small. I counsel you, put down in record even your doubts and surmises. Hereafter it may be of interest to you to see how true you guess. We learn from failure, not from success!” (Stoker 130). In the line, the word ‘knowledge’ in comparison to ‘memory’ bears multiple layers of meaning. Firstly, it indicates that by the act of writing, their experiences can come into a form of knowledge, which can earn credibility from both they themselves and the readers. Secondly, it implies that the reconstruction of memory into knowledge can be related to the dramatization of the incidents and thus arouse certain sentiments or atmosphere from their experiences of incidents as raw materials. Finally, it can be understood that the record itself can and should be the object of analysis and study to construct the effective tactics to fight off the Dracula. On the other hand, the composition of novel, comprised of various excerpts from each character’s record, ensures the credibility of the incidents and the narrator through its obsession with facts while not devastating the horror, monstrous, fantasy elements of the plot.
