Transcript of Nice to Eat You: Acts of a Vampire

Sexy beast
Nice to Eat You: Acts of a Vampire "Nice to eat with you" if you took out the "with" then its creepy
literature. By just a subtraction of a word, can turn a sentence to
evil purposes. If you have read Dracula, good for you.
That is the least scary because even though
he is scary, he is sexy. Dracula has a weakness for beautiful, unmarried women.
This makes him more of a bachelor other than he sucks
their blood for youth and turns them into slaves. Lets go back a step. Bram's novel Dracula is mostly about
a old man that is attractive and evil who violates young
women and seal their fates by making them slaves like him. Creeper
if you ask me... Most novels that are to scare you out of your wits usually
have to do with sex. Ever since the serpent seduced Eve,
sex has everything to do with evil.
The literal meaning to vampires is selfishness and exploitation.
Ghosts have the same meaning to this. Literal meaning to ghosts have to do with
things beyond themselves like Hamlet where
his father's ghost warns of the wrong that was
done and also in the Christmas Carol. Another example.. The Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde where Mr. Hyde
is the dual evil side of humans and remind them always. Victorians They always found ways of transforming issues
into other forms. With ghosts, vampires, werewolves, etc. Tip: Ghosts and Vampires are never only about ghosts and vampires. Henry James A master of psychological realism. Books
The Turn of the Screw
Daisy Miller Essentials of Vampire Stories: older figure representing corruption out-worn values young virgin woman stripping away her youth and energy continuence of the life force of the old male death of young woman what happens in the books is that Dracula is deemed as the figure of the consuming spirit or vampiric personality a useful narrative vehicle. This figure shows up in many different novels we may not look into as hard as we do. 19 century is filled with writers showing
the line between monstruous and ordinary. Like...
Edgar Allen Poe
Thomas Hardy
20th century has destroyed
the 19th century way with social
rapirism and cannibalism like the Hunger Artist.
Vampires nowadays are more for cheap gothic
thrill instead of symbolic significance, but tend to
be short-term commodities. The overall point this comes down to in literature: exploitation in its many forms. Vampires aren't just fictional monsters. They're perspectives on people who exploit on other people and are selfish.
If we don't "cure" ourselves of this then we are the true vampires. Basics to Vamps Creeper
if you ask me... Dracula has a weakness for beautiful, unmarried women.
This makes him more of a bachelor other than he sucks
their blood for youth and turns them into slaves. Lets go back a step. Bram Stoke's novel Dracula is mostly about an old man who is evil, yet attractive who violates young women and seal their fates to be evil slaves similar to him. Literal
Meanings In
Scary
Books rape means sucking blood wrong one.... This ties in Daisy Miller when she dies of vampires instead of malaria because Winterbourne carries winter as in death
and Daisy carries life. Winterbourne is older, his family disapproves of her and tax her energies till she wanes, and ignores and leaves her
after she is all used up and starts to waste away. He moves on after the spectacle he caused.
the end? By Max and Tyler
