The Vampire as both a Segregated and an Integrated Other. Discussing humanisation of the vampire in "Twilight" contrasting "Dracula"
This essay discusses how the view of the vampire has changed from Dracula to Twilight where the wish to be integrated into humanity and society is fundamental for both main vampire characters of the novels. By viewing the vampire through narration, the authors and contemporary social ideals it has developed from a segregated solitary animal to an integrated humanised creature. This humanisation has given the vampire a conscious and an individual personality contributing to the reader’s possibility to identify with it through attraction.
