'Interview with the Vampire' and 'Wuthering Heights' and the Diabolical Reversal of the Nuclear Family by Bianca Stärk Summary

Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,3, Victoria University of Technology, Melbourne (Faculty of Arts, Education and Human Development), course: Popular Fictions, 13 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Both novels are filed under Gothic fiction. Gothic always represents "otherness." "Gothic fiction, ..., frequently represents the ways in which both family and class, ..., are threatened or attacked by the 'dark forces' of transgressive sexuality, illicit desires, and unsanctioned class mobility"(Niqi:1). The Gothic centre is "the realm of the family and the domestic and the class structures"(Niqi:2). Anne Williams argues that "the Gothic myth" (Williams: 22) is the patriarchal family. Gothic is determined by the rules of the family because family structure also generates the plots within Gothic. "Gothic plots are family plots, Gothic romance is family romance." (Williams: 22) In the English language plot also means "an area of ground" and therefore the "Gothic myth" has special kinds of settings. Not every story can take place in a haunted castle.

The Vampire in Literature: A Comparison of Bram Stoker's Dracula and Anne Rice's Interview with the Vampire by Janina Nußbaumer Summary

The figure of the vampire has been around for centuries, and has lost none of its fascination. Although, the portrayal of the vampire in literature today has not much in common with its historical origins, the vampire belief is based on true events. Bram Stoker's novel ‘Dracula’ laid the foundation for the success story of the vampire. He created something sinister, a monster in the shape of a gentleman. The evil of the Victorian society was personified in the form of the revenant. Boundaries between good and evil, human and non-human, death and life are blurred and unrecognizable in his book. In contrast, Anne Rice creates a world where humans and vampires live next to each other. Her vampires resemble human beings not only in terms of their bodies, but also in terms of their minds. There is no horror detectable, but amazement and identification with the revenants by the reader. In this context, the differentiation of the constructed images of the vampires in the two novels, ‘Dracula’ by Bram Stoker and ‘Interview with the Vampire’ by Anne Rice, is analyzed. Thereby, the study investigates those elements that have been adopted, those ones that have developed over the time, and the consequences that go along with the manner of construction.
