Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

THE BLOOD DELIRIUM is a definitive collection of 19th century European literature in which the vampire, or vampirism - both embodied and atmospheric - is featured or evoked. Twentythree seminal works by classic European authors, covering the whole of that delirious period from Gothic and Romantic, through Symbolism and Decadence to protoSurrealism and beyond, in a single volume charged with sex, blood and horror. With a detailed introduction by editor Candice Black which not only examines these texts and their meaning, but also the literary and cultural climate in which the new cult of the vampire was allowed to flourish. BRAM STOKER, CHARLES BAUDELAIRE, LAUTR AMONT, MAUPASSANT, COUNT STENBOCK, CYPRIEN BERARD, JEAN LORRAIN, TH OPHILE GAUTIER, PAUL F VAL, CHARLES NODIER, JAN NERUDA, JOHN POLIDORI, IVAN TURGENEV, CHARLOTTE BRONTE, JK HUYSMANS, J.M. RYDER, L ON BLOY, MAURICE ROLLINAT, AUGUSTUS HARE, J SHERIDAN LE FANU, OSCAR WILDE Several texts are here translated into English for the very first time, including those by Cyprien Berard and Maurice Rollinat. The definitive collection for literate vampire-lovers.
