Vampires Over the Ages: A Cultural Analysis of Scientific, Literary, and Cinematic Representations gives students the materials to analyze the way the vampire image has changed over the centuries, particularly as it relates to politics, sexuality, and culture. The book surveys the vampire legend historically, compares scientific, literary, and cinematic representations of vampires, and analyzes vampire images from a cultural perspective.
Readers will be exposed to classic vampire literature such as Teophile Gautier's Clarimonde and August Strindberg's The Ghost Sonata. Notable writers including Karl Marx and Oskar Kokoshka provide a political framework for the vampire legend, and excerpts from the work of Sigmund Freud yield psychological insight.
Featuring primary sources ranging from the Literature/Film Quarterly to Mechademia 2: Networks of Desire, the book is a comprehensive and fascinating examination of vampire legend and lore and how they have changed over time.
Vampires Over the Ages: A Cultural Analysis of Scientific, Literary, and Cinematic Representations can be used in film and literature courses, as well as those that focus on popular culture and early scientific theories about vampire plagues.
