ÉCRITS SUR BACON, Simon, Eco-Vampires: The Undead

L’IMAGINAIRE and the Environment, Jefferson (NC),


McFarland, 2020, 215 pages.
This work studies the ways vampiric narratives
explore the eco-friendly credentials of the
undead. Many of these texts and films show
the vampire to be an essential part of a global
ecosystem and an organism that can no longer
tolerate the all-consuming forces of
globalization and consumerism. Re-examining
Bram Stoker’s Dracula and a range of other
SCIENCE-FICTION vampire narratives, primarily films, in a fresh
FANTASTIQUE & FANTASY light, this book reveals the nosferatu as both a
plague on humankind and the eco-warriors that
planet Earth desperately needs.
