The origins of the vampire can be traced through oral traditions, ancient texts and archaeological discoveries, its nature varying from one culture to the next up until the 20th century. Three 19th century Irish writers—Charles Robert Maturin, Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu and Bram Stoker—used the obscure vampire of folklore in their fiction and developed a universally recognizable figure, culminating in Stoker’s Dracula and the vampire of today’s popular culture. Maturin, Le Fanu and Stoker did not set out to transform the vampire of regional folk tales into a global phenomenon. Their personal lives, national concerns and extensive reading were reflected in their writing, striking a chord with readers and recasting the vampire as distinctly Irish. This study traces the genealogy of the modern literary vampire from European mythology through the Irish literature of the 1800s.

The Irish Vampire: From Folklore to the Imaginations of Charles Robert Maturin, Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu and Bram Stoker

Wow, I don't even know what to say about this paperback. First I must say Libba Bray is hilarious! I highly recommend the audio paperback so that you can hear her portrayal of the different humors and enjoy the haphazardness of the paid announcements, teen idea fun lowdowns, and afterthoughts. The paperback was nobody like I expected, however I had been told to think of it as Lost meets Lord of the Flies, I would say that is true, but only if you add a small quantity of the Hills or the OC. How she manages to infuse both humor and social ends in a YA novel on a deserted enclave is beyond me, but it was a job well done.
