Abstract

TORIBIO-HERNANDEZ, Edgar. THE ORIGIN AND EVOLUTION OF VAMPIRES: FANTASY MONSTERS. Acta lit. [online]. 2018, n.57, pp.39-70. ISSN 0717-6848.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-68482018000200039.

Abstract: The work succinctly presents three themes: fantasy monsters before the emergence of vampires, formation of their archetype from events in Eastern Europe and variants of their stereotype until our century. From a misunderstood natural cadaverous process came the idea of their thirst for blood, which evolved into humanization and even a vision of superheroes.

Keywords : Vampires; Serbia; Ukraine; Stagg; Polidori; Stoker; anthrax; plague.
