Since the publication of John Polidori s The Vampyre (1819), the vampire has been a mainstay of Western culture, appearing consist...ently in literature, art, music (notably opera), film, television, graphic novels and popular culture in general. Even before its entrance into the realm of arts and letters in the early nineteenth century, the vampire was a feared creature of Eastern European folklore and legend, rising from the grave at night to consume its living loved ones and neighbors, often converting them at the same time into fellow vampires. A major question exists within vampire scholarship: to what extent is this creature a product of European cultural forms, or is the vampire indeed a universal, perhaps even archetypal figure? In this collection of sixteen original essays, the contributors shed light on this question. One essay traces the origins of the legend to the early medieval Norse draugr, an undead creature who reflects the underpinnings of Dracula, the latter first appearing as a vampire in Anglo-Irish Bram Stoker s 1897 novel, Dracula. In addition to these investigations of the Western mythic, literary and historic traditions, other essays in this volume move outside Europe to explore vampire figures in Native American and Mesoamerican myth and ritual, as well as the existence of similar vampiric traditions in Japanese, Russian and Latin American art, theatre, literature, film, and other cultural productions. The female vampire looms large, beginning with the Sumerian goddess Lilith, including the nineteenth-century Carmilla, and moving to vampiresses in twentieth-century film, literature, and television series. Scientific explanations for vampires and werewolves constitute another section of the book, including eighteenth-century accounts of unearthing, decapitation and cremation of suspected vampires in Eastern Europe. The vampire s beauty, attainment of immortality and eternal youth are all suggested as reasons for its continued success in contemp read more
Read Kerry Madden's posts on the Penguin Blog. Nelle Harper Leeâ s To Kill a Mockingbird was published in 1960 and became an insta...nt bestseller. Two years later it was an Academy Awardâ winning film. Today, it remains standardâ and belovedâ reading in English classes. But Lee never wanted â the bookâ to define who she was, which explains her aversion to any kind of publicity. Kerry Madden conducted extensive research for this Up Close biography, which reveals Lee to be a down-to-earth Southern woman who prefers to live simply, like her neighbors do, despite the fact that she is a treasured literary legend. Maddenâ s in-depth biography is now more relevant than ever: 2015â s historic release of Go Set a Watchmanâ written by Lee before To Kill a Mockingbird and lost for decadesâ has thrust Lee and her work back into the spotlight.A Booklist Top Ten Biography of 2009 A Kirkus Best Book of 2009 read more

Ralph F. Voss was a high school junior in Plainville Kansas in mid-November of 1959 when four members of the Herbert Clutter famil...y were murdered in Holcomb Kansas by; four shotgun blasts that all told ended six human lives; an unimaginable horror in a quiet farm community during the Eisenhower years. No one in Kansas or elsewhere could then have foreseen the emergence of Capote;s book-which has never gone out of print has twice been made into a major motion picture remains required reading in criminology American Studies sociology and English classes and has been the source of two recent biographical films. Voss examines Capote and In Cold Blood from many perspectives not only as the crowning achievement of Capote;s career but also as a story in itself focusing on Capote;s artfully composed text his extravagant claims for it as reportage and its larger status in American popular culture. Voss argues that Capote;s publication of In Cold Blood in 1966 forever transcended his reputation as a first-rate stylist but second-rate writer of; Southern gothic; fiction; that In Cold Blood actually is a gothic novel a sophisticated culmination of Capote;s artistic development and interest in lurid regionalism but one that nonetheless eclipsed him both personally and artistically. He also explores Capote;s famous claim that he created a genre called the; non-fiction novel; and its status as a foundational work of; true crime; writing as practiced by authors ranging from Tom Wolfe and Norman Mailer to James Ellroy Joe McGinniss and John Berendt. Voss also examines Capote;s artful manipulation of the story;s facts and circumstances: his masking of crucial homoerotic elements to enhance its marketability; his need for the killers to remain alive long enough to get the story and then his need for them to die so that he could complete it; and Capote;s style his shaping of the narrative and his selection of details-why it served him to include this and not that and the effects read more
