But he spoke German […]. His voice was peculiarly soft and insinuating […]. But let me give my first impressions. He was rather tall with fair wavy hair, rather long, which accentuated a certain effeminacy, about his smooth face. His figure had something -I cannot say what- serpentine about it. The features were refined; and he had long, slender, subtle, magnetic-looking hands, a somewhat long sinuous nose, a graceful mouth, and an attractive smile, which belied the intense sadness of the expression of the eyes. When he arrived his eyes were half closed -indeed they were habitually so- so that I could not decide their colour.
He looked worned and wearied. I could not possibly guess his age. My life, yes life -oh, why life? I am sure this is but a little that I demand of thee. Surely thy superabundance of life can spare little to one who is already dead. No, stay', he said now almost harshly, 'what must be, must be! Suddenly Gabriel burst into the room; a yellow butterfly was clinging to his hair. He was carrying in his arms a little squirrel.
Of course he was barelegged as usual. The stranger looked up at his approach […] Gabriel stood stock-still, with a startled look, like that of a a bird fascinated by a serpent. But nevertheless he held out his hand to the newcomer Vardalek, taking his hand -I don't know why I noticed this trivial thing- pressed the pulse with his forefinger. Suddenly Gabriel darted from the room and rushed upstairs […]. Great was my relief when he came down in his velvet Sunday suit, and shoes and stockings!

Sin embargo, el conde Vardalek lo sabe al instante y eficazmente lo interpreta. One night I had gone downstairs to fetch something which I had left in the drawing-room. As I was going up again I passed Vardalek's room. He was playing on a piano […] one of Chopin's nocturnes […] Something white appeared on the dark staircase […] What was my astonishment to see Gabriel walking slowly down the staircase, his eyes fixed as though in a trance! He left it open. Vardalek still continued playing, but talked as he played.
He said -this time speaking in Polish- Nie uniem wyrazic jak ciechi kocham- 'My darling, I fain would spare thee; but thy life is my life, and I must live, I who would rather die […] pp. Ambos se despiden con una escena tierna y amorosa: El texto acaba con la frase: Es muy curioso que este vampiro no muera. Parravicini, lleva a cabo. Se puede ver claramente que cuando el narrador habla de Lady Ducayne, por ejemplo, en realidad lo hace de toda la aristocracia y nobleza inglesa.
Rolleston was a lady by birth and education; but it had been her bad fortune to marry a scoundrel; for the last half-dozen years she had been that worst of widows, a wife whose husband had deserted her. Happily, she was courageous, industrious, and a clever needlewoman; and she had been able just to earn a living for herself and her only child, by making mantles and cloaks for a West-end house.
Perhaps this is what makes some girls so eager to marry -the want of someone strong and brave and honest and true to care for then and order them about. I want no one, mother darling, for I have you, and you are all the world to me. No husband could ever come between us two. If I ever were to marry he would have only the second place in my heart. No young man can afford to marry a penniless girl nowadays.
Life is too expensive. Es muy destacable el hecho de que realmente los dos constituyen las dos caras de la misma moneda: El narrador nos informa: In two years' hospital practice he had seen too much of the grim realities of life to retain any prejudices about rank. Cancer, phthisis, gangrene, leave a man with little respect for the humanity. The kernel is always the same -fearfully and wonderfully made- a subject for pity and terror.
Then I think you have had your share of the sunshine and the pleasures of the earth, and that you should spend your few remaining days in repenting your sins and trying to make atonement for the young lives that have been sacrificed to your love of life. Para la ingenua mirada de Bella, Lady Ducayne aparece como un ser gentil, bueno y amable. As she looked, a carriage passed her, an old-fashioned, yellow chariot, on cee [sic] springs, drawn by a pair of high grey horses, with the stateliest of coachmen driving them, and a tall footman sitting by his side. A partir de las opiniones de los personajes, las descripciones y alusiones del narrador llegamos a saber que Lady Ducayne es un vampiro.
Dos aspectos fundamentales para resumir en cierto modo el tema central de la novela: Usemos las palabras del propio van Helsing para ilustrar lo mencionado: He meant that we shall have an open mind, and not let a little bit of truth check the rush of a big truth […]. We get the small truth the first. We keen him, and evalue him; but all the same we must not let him think himself all the truth in the universe. Como ejemplo, baste mencionar la historia que refiere que le gustaba comer rodeado de la gente empalada en el reciente combate.
En palabras de Molina Foix: Vlad Tepes el Empalador y sus antepasados. Como opina Ken Gelder: Dracula […] also in part enables these many readerly productions to come into being. Whithin, stood a tall old man, clean-shaven save for a long white moustache, and clad in black from head to foot […].
He held in his hand an antique silver lamp, in which the flame burned without chimmey or globe of any kind, throwing long, quivering shadows as it flickered in the draught of the open door. Y es en el uso de este disfraz donde la autora ubica el verdadero sentimiento del miedo: A Poetics of Gothic, pp. Here I am, sitting at a little oak table where in old times possibly some fair lady sat to pen, with much thought and many blushes, her ill-spelt love-letter, and writing my diary in shorthand all that has happened since I closed it last.
I could feel the soft, shivering touch of the lips on the supersensitive skin of my throat, and the hand dents of two sharp teeth, just touching and pausing there. I closed my eyes in a languorous ecstasy and waited —waited with beating heart. The moonlight was so bright that through the thick yellow blind the room was light enough to see. On the bed beside the window lay Jonathan Harker […] kneeling on the near edge of the bed facing outwards was the white-clad figure of his wife. By her side stood a tall, thin man, clad in black […]. With his left hand he held both Mrs.
Ah, I doubt not that in old time, when such things were, many a man who set forth to do such a task as mine, found at the last his heart fail him, and then his nerve. So he delay, and delay, and delay, till the mere beauty and the fascination of the wanton Un- Dead have hypnotised him […] then the beautiful eyes of the fair woman open and look above, and the voluptuous mouth present to a kiss —and a man is weak.
And there remain one more victim in the Vampire fold; one more to swell the grim and grisly ranks of the Un-Dead. Lombroso aparece citado en la novela. La mujer fatal como vampiro. En una de las cartas de Lucy ella se queja de no poder casarse con sus tres pretendientes: Es muy ilustrativa al respecto la escena en que Arthur Holmwood termina con Lucy: Arthur took the stake and the hammer, and when once his mind was set on action his hands never trembled nor even quivered […] The Thing in the coffin-writhed; and a hideous, blood-curdling screech come from the opened red lips.
The body shook and quivered and twisted in wild contortions; the sharp white teeth champed together till the lips were cut and the mouth was smeared with a crimson foam. But Arthur never faltered. He looked like a figure of Thor as his untrembling arm rose and fell, driving deeper and deeper the mercy-bearing stake, whilst the blood from the pierced heart welled and spurted up around it. His face was set, and high duty seemed to shine through it. Mientras que el viaje del conde de Transilvania a Inglaterra supone su rejuvenecimiento, a Harker le supone el envejecimiento, sobre todo cuando Mina es contaminada.
Porque como el vampiro representa el inconsciente humano, no puede reflejarse ya que es parte de nosotros mismos. How dare you cast eyes on him when I had forbidden it? Back, I tell you all! This man belongs to me! Is it not so? I think he understood my look: Curiosamente Morris no sobrevive a la lucha final. Edgar Allan Poe y H. They come of an ancient and queenly lineage, these Dark Women of the romance tradition, iconographic inscriptions of patriarchal ambivalence towards the female.
From Lilith to Lulu and beyond they haunt the houses of their masters, mocking them while escaping into the safety mythology. Romance narratives allow such outsized creations free reign, unfettered by the dictates of verisimilar fictions. Ligeia llega a poseer el cuerpo de la segunda esposa del narrador; Berenice cae presa de Ibid, p. Lilith, figura tradicionalmente vinculada al vampirismo, como ya hemos visto. Tras la muerte de ella, el narrador se sume en un mundo obsesivo dominado por el consumo de drogas. They were […] far larger than the ordinary eyes of our race.
They were even far fuller than the fullest of the Gazelle eyes of the tribe of the valley of Nourjahad […]. I recognized it […] sometimes in the commonest objects of the universe. It has flashed upon me in the survey of a rapidly-growing vine —in the contemplantion of a moth, a butterfly, a chrysalis, a stream of running water. I have felt it in the ocean, in the falling of a meteor […] in the glances of unusually aged people. And there are one or two stars in heaven […] of which I have been made aware of the feeling.
I have been filled with it by certain sounds from stringed instruments, and not unfrequently by passages from books.

Ambas, Ligeia y Berenice, descritas por un narrador de cuya cordura dudamos, son de naturaleza ambigua. Parece ser que el texto fue el resultado de una apuesta. El propio Poe dice acerca del mismo: A word or two in relation to Berenice […]. The subject is by far too horrible, and I confess that I hesitated in sending it you specially as a specimen of my capabilities.
The Tale originated in a bet that I could produce nothing effective on a subject so singular, provided I treated it seriously […]. In respect to Berenice [sic] individually, I allow that it approaches the very verge of bad taste -but I will not sin quite so egregiously again. White, April 30, ; conseguido en internet en www. In a way, though with significant differences, each story points a similar "moral": Beatrice is a female Aegus: Our line has been called a race of visionaries: In the meantime my own disease […] grew rapidly upon me, and, aggravated in its symptoms by the immoderate use of opium, assumed finally a monomaniac character of a novel and extraordinary form […].
This monomania […] consisted in a morbid irritability of the nerves immediately affecting those properties of the mind in metaphysical science termed the attentive […] in my case, the powers of meditation […] busied and, as it were, buried themselves, in the contemplation of even the most common objects of the universe. Few deductions -if any- were made; and those few pertinaciously returning in, so to speak, upon the original object as a centre" p.
Puesto que no es hasta que Berenice enferma y su naturaleza cambia de forma tan radical que Egaeus se interesa por ella; y no por ella, sino por el cambio que experimenta. But uplifting my eyes Berenice stood before me. Was it my own excited imagination -or the misty influence of the atmosphere- […] that caused it to loom up in so unnatural a degree?
An icy chill ran through my frame; a sense of insufferable anxiety oppressed me […] The forehead was high, and very pale, and singularly placid […]. The eyes were lifeless, and lustreless, and I shrunk involuntarily from their glassy stare to the contemplation of the thin and shrunken lips.

The room was large, and very dark, and at every step within its gloomy precincts I encountered the paraphernalia of the grave […] and with a sense of suffocation I dragged myself to the side of the AA. Gently I uplifted the sable draperies of the curtains […] and shutting me thus out from the living, enclosed me in the strictest communion with the deceased.
Was it my brain that releed -or was it indeed the finger of the enshrouded dead that stirred in the white cerement that bound it? De repente la cajita cae y se esparcen los dientes de alguien por el suelo; se sobreentiende que son los de Berenice. En el plano narrativo es importante destacar que el propio narrador-protagonista descubre lo que ha ocurrido al mismo tiempo que el lector. Desde la perspectiva de este trabajo, con el primer problema que nos encontramos ante el texto de Poe es si realmente hay un personaje vampiro. Todo esto sumado a la ausencia de elementos tradicionales como la sangre hace que se dificulte discernir la verdadera naturaleza de Berenice.
Sea como fuere, lo que hace este cuento interesante, independientemente de la naturaleza de Berenice, es el hecho de ser una de las primeras manifestaciones literarias en EE. Berenice and I were cousins, and we grew up together […] yet differently we grew. I ill of health and buried in gloom -she agile, graceful, and overflowing with energy. Hers the ramble on the hill- side -mine the studies of the cloister. I living withing my own heart, and addicted body and soul to the most intense and painful meditation -she roaming carelessly through life with no thought of the shadows in her path […] p.
Disease […] fell like the simoon upon her frame, and, even while I gazed upon her, the spirit of change swept over her, pervading her mind, her habits, and her character […] disturbing even the identity of her person! Poe evidentemente no quiso resolver el enigma. Sea como fuere, es muy curioso que ambos cuentos, tanto el de Poe como el de J.
El Libro de los vampiros, op.
A este momento corresponde su poema "The Poem of Ulysses" Lovecraft, ", en www. Sobre el relato James Russell dice: In it he satirises his own self image as an outsider in his own time, unfit for human society, his narrator has never before ventured beyond the isolated confines of his ancestral castle, nor beheld his own likeness in a mirror.
Then one day he decides to up and leave and visit the world. He sees some people who run away in fright, turns to see what they're running from, and sees a monstruous, classically lovecraftian thing, "a compound of all that is unclean, uncanny, unwelcome, abnormal and detestable. It's one of Lovecraft's best endings. Esto le sirve para introducir su queja: I know not where I was born, save that the castle was infinitely old and infinitely horrible […] and there was an accursed smell everywhere, as of the piled-up corpses of dead generations.
It was never light […]. There was one black tower which reached above the trees into the unknown outer sky, but that was partly ruined […] p. I cannot recall any person except myself, or anything alive but the noiseless rats and bats and spiders" p. My aspect was a matter equally unthought of, for there were no mirrors in the castle, and I merely regarded myself by instinct as akin to the youthful figures I saw drawn and painted in the books.
I felt conscious of youth because I remembered so little. No teacher urged or guided me […]. I had read of speech, I had never thought to try to speak loud" p. Finalmente llega a un sendero y lo que parece una morada humana. The nightmare was quick to come, for as I entered, there occurred immediately one of the most terrifying demonstration I had ever conceived […] a sudden and unheralded fear of hideous intensity, distorting every face and evoking the most horrible screams from nearly every throat. I cannot even hint what it was like, for it was compound of all that is unclean, uncanny, unwelcome, abnormal, and detestable.
It was the ghoulish shade of decay, antiquity, and dissolution; the putrid, dripping eidolon of unwholesome revelation, the awful baring of that which the merciful earth should always hide. God knows it was not of this world -or no longer of this world- yet to my horror I saw in its eaten-way and bone-revealing outlines a leering, abhorrent travesty on the human shape; and in its mouldy, disintegrating apparel an unspeakable quality that chilled me even more.
Nos encontramos, por tanto, ante un texto cuyo protagonista es "algo", una cosa monstruosa no definida. De acuerdo con J. Divide a los ocultistas en tres grupos: De esta forma, expresiones como "De cuando en cuando suele tener esos raros arranques" p. Sumemos las alusiones a la inestabilidad emocional del personaje que aparecen en aspectos como el insomnio, la tristeza o la falta de apetito. Pero informa para ello que "no estoy borracho. No he sido loco" p. Tengo el horror […] de la muerte. La estancia en el colegio de Oxford lo convierte en una persona triste e inestable emocionalmente.

Y oigo, en En cursiva en el original. Por ello, esta voz anticipa la naturaleza de la madrastra. James es visitado por su padre para sacarlo del internado, debido a dos razones fundamentales: Muestra de ello son las referencias negativas hacia la figura paterna desde el inicio del relato.

El texto da a entender que es el propio cuerpo de la madre el que el Dr. Leen que consigue su inmortalidad. Cuando lo leemos no podemos sino recordar un cuento del que, a nuestro parecer, contiene ecos: Las descripciones siguientes son extensas y extremadamente detallistas. Hecho que podemos observar en expresiones como: En realidad, era una labor inteligente la efectuada por el astuto insecto: En el cuento de A.
En este caso, el vampiro se identifica con el personaje del italiano, con el extranjero. Se casan y se retiran a la granja, donde tienen una hija, Cordelia hija. En cambio, caudal como el de don Fortunato no se encuentra otro en la provincia. De igual manera es dotada de atributos positivos, relacionados con la juventud, la salud y la vida: Te he buscado como se busca el sol; me arrimo a ti como si me arrimase a la llama bienhechora del invierno. De esta vez, o se marcha del pueblo, o la cencerrada termina en quemarle la casa y sacarle arrastrando para matarle de una paliza tremenda.
Die Braut von Korint, de Goethe. Y al igual que la novia de Goethe, "les hizo reproches por haber ido a turbar su idilio" p. De esta forma nos dice: El uso de este animal en la literatura no fue exclusivo de Rebolledo, sino que siguiendo las palabras de Schneider: Sirva de ejemplo la respuesta que da cuando le preguntan si a ella le gusta fumar: Como vemos, otro rasgo de la mujer moderna: Su carne pulida, firme y de tonos dorados […] Su busto era alto y rica su cadera.
El timbre de su voz era armonioso, con un leve matiz de burla […] y su risa breve, aguda, cruel […] pp. Baste recordar a Theda Bara, arquetipo de la mujer fatal para los mass media: Lo que hace de Elena Rivas la mujer fatal, la vamp de su entorno sociocultural, es su personalidad, su actitud ante la vida y, sobre todo, ante sus amantes. El texto informa que los versos a los que nos referimos aparecieron en el Independiente Ilustrado con el nombre de "Un raudal de promesas" p. Tu cuello, delator de tu oculta blancura, Como un lirio se yergue despertando ansias locas; Pero en vano el deseo como el mar se tortura Azotando y besando de tus senos las rocas.
Estos versos tienen un papel narrativo fundamental en el texto. Por otro, ya en segunda lectura, funcionan como indicio del final y, al mismo tiempo, condensan la totalidad del relato: En palabras de J. Luego desaparece de la sociedad y cuando reaparece lo trata cruel y despiadadamente. Se embriagaba en las cantinas de los barrios con empleados de mala traza y con literatastros.
En su cuartucho, en una casa de vecindad: La novela acaba con la frase de Elena, contenta y deleitosa del suceso: Elena Rivas es casi propuesta como el ejemplo a seguir por las mujeres mexicanas y todas. La tercera ocurre cuando el propio Quiroga mata accidentalmente a su amigo Federico Ferrando en , cuando manipulaba un arma. Y finalmente su propio suicidio en Esta huella de la muerte ha marcado tanto al hombre como al escritor. Continuando con Leonor Fleming, la muerte aparece en sus relatos de dos formas: La naturaleza de sus textos no es idealizada, sino que posee un "realismo violento", donde "cada uno de los elementos […] particulariza alguna cualidad especial".
Ni en la realidad, ni en la pantalla los espectros deben hablar. En la tiniebla de mis ojos espero a cada momento ver, blanco, concentrado y diminuto, el fantasma de una mujer. Del mismo modo que se imprime la voz en el circuito de la radio, se puede imprimir el efluvio de un semblante en otro circuito de orden visual". Rosales es visto por Grant como un loco culto y desocupado. El mismo Rosales lo manifiesta cuando dice: Grant afirma esta debilidad: Hecho ante el que Grant replica, afirmando que no son muestras de vida completa, sino "espectros".
La primera vez fracasa: De esas cosas que deben quedar para siempre del otro lado de la tumba". Por ello, decide matar a la verdadera actriz en Hollywood para otorgarle vida real a su espectro.
