Slavic Blood: The Vampire in Russian and East European Cultures is a unique volume that brings together a wide variety of historical, critical, and literary texts that reveal and explore the origins, growth, and development of the vampire myth from its beginnings to the 21st century. It examines the vampire myth within the region of its origin in Western cultures – the lands of the Balkans, Eastern Europe, and Russia – and reviews the earliest recorded tales, as well as recent portrayals of Russian vampires on film, to give the reader a dynamic perspective on one the world's most enduring cultural phenomena. This edition features additional fiction and nonfiction material on sociopolitical interpretations of the vampire, as well as new song lyrics on vampire and werewolf themes.
Slavic Blood is ideal for courses ranging from folklore to gothic studies, and Slavic to religious studies.
