'Praed’s interest in the relationship between culture and vampiric possession finds its most extensive and complex treatment in Affinities, which presents a portrait of Oscar Wilde in the guise of the psychic, or moral vampire.'

Works about this Work

Rosa Praed and the Vampire-Aesthete Andrew McCann , 2007 single work criticism
— Appears in: Victorian Literature and Culture , March vol. 35 no. 1 2007; (p. 175-187)
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.
