About the Author

Erik Butler has written extensively on European culture and film and taught at Emory University. His books include Metamorphoses of the Vampire in Literature and Film (2011).


"Just to say the word 'vampire' now is to make some readers shudder, and not for the right reasons. But reading a new study--Erik Butler's The Rise of the Vampire--we realise that was is interesting isn't just the vampires themselves but why they appear in the first place. . . . Butler is very good at exploring vampirism as a psychological condition as much as a physical one."--The Times (UK)
"Butler is to be applauded for elucidating the emergence of vampire mythology in history and its progression through various cultures up to its widespread presence in today's culture. Weaving in themes of vampirism as cultural and psychological symptoms, amplifications of themes of life and its manifold limits and complexities, Erik Butler has created a masterful compendium of ideas."
--New York Journal of Books
