“The popularity of the vampires still continues.”

In the American world of entertainment, the popularity of vampires (blood-suckers) has reached incredible proportions. At the height of the current wave of popularity lies Twilight. The is a line that draws a distinction between the vampires that appear in the Twilight series and vampires we’ve been familiar with up until now. Edward, the beautiful young high school student played by Robert Pattinson, and his family, as a rule do not attack human females. Why? Well, because they are “vegetarians.”
Since Bram Stoker’s 19th century horror novel “Dracula,” most of the vampires that have appeared in popular culture have been seen as metaphors for sexual desire. As the basic plot involves suspicious men roaming on the lookout for virgins’ blood during the midnight hours, this is a natural interpretation. (There is also the big advantage that, while directly depicting these erotic themes is difficult, when they are dealt with figuratively it is possible to dig much more deeply into them.) However, Twilight, because this is a forbidden subject, has changed the classical vampire horror story into a romantic story of young, innocent love.

Whether vegetarian “Twilight” or carnivorous “True Blood” both light and shadow exist in this world. As long as unsatisfied passions exist in the depths of the human heart, vampires will surely continue to have a place in this world forever.

Thank you Clara!
