AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Explores the the ways in which Praed's occult-inspired novels deploy the figure of the vampire-aesthete, at the centre of both Affinities and The Soul of Countess Adrian, to introduce a self-reflexive relationship to the different economies of value in which they were embedded. In suggesting that Praed's vampire-aesthetes articulate anxieties about cultural value and influence in an imperial economy, I also want to diversify the provenance of the fin-de-si'ecle vampire.
