VWnG035 Inanna Arthen: Beyond Twilight, Part 2

This is part two of Inanna Arthen’s talk on the history of vampires in fiction. In this lively talk, recorded at Books and Boos in Colchester, Connecticut, on April 20, two thousand thirteen, Inanna Arthen traces the history of vampires in fiction and debunks some of the common mistakes and misinformation about the genre.

She ended Part 1, by reading an article on vampires that appeared in 1855 in the periodical Household Words. The article was uncredited, which could mean that it was written by a member of staff, possibly the editor. The editor at the time was Charles Dickens!

Part 2 begins with the end of the 19th century.
