Vampire, The

The vampire is a popular character throughout classical and contemporary literature and the recent popularity of the Twilight series inspired me to research the vampire figure throughout literature. I chose to explore literature featuring this character through a psychoanalytical interpretation and focus on the Freudian interpretation of the uncanny. Although this project revolves around literary research as opposed to scientific research I still followed a method when initiating this project. I executed this thesis by reading a variety of poems, short stories, and novels about the vampire, and then reading "The Uncanny" by Freud and applying the concepts within to the literature I read staring vampires. As I investigated the vampire's literary past and contemporary popularity I argue that is the uncanny elements within the story of the vampire that ensure this characters continuing popularity.
