It was nice to read one of the predecessors of Bram Stokers [b:Dracula|17245]. Lovely old-fashioned, a light read, entertaining, and sometimes scary. ( )

I did a quick listen to this novella. After Dracula, my curiosity...
This was really enjoyable! The maiden of vampire lore. I was happy to discover what survived as elements to the later creations and what was left behind. I feel a level of completeness just now ( )

I'm not sure why, but I've been avoiding reading this short novel for a very long time. I guess I just wasn't expecting much.

I was wrong.

I loved this novella.

I know much has been made of the undertone of lesbianism in the novel, but for me, I'm always more of the mind...does it add to the story? Or detract?

In this case, the sensuality and attractiveness of the vampire to pretty much everyone who meets her is an essential characteristic of Le Fanu's vampire (or vampyre). And man, he makes it work.

The plot is brilliant, the pacing is perfect, and the wrap-up is, while short, nicely done. All in all, this is an awesome and worthy prequel to Stoker's Dracula. And honestly? In many ways, it's the superior of the two.

I'm glad I finally read it. ( )

My gf got me the version edited by Carmen Maria Machado and I’m so excited to read it!!!

*update* this version is for sure 4 stars on my first read. And I think it’ll grow to a 5 after another re-read or two. The key with this is to look beyond the words and with Machado’s introduction and notes it is so much easier to do so. Looking forward to analyzing this story more ( )

I've heard about this short book for a while now, an early vampire tale from the 1870s, beating out Bram Stoker's Dracula by a quarter century. I kept intending to get around to reading it, and now a new graphic novel adaptation I want to read has finally prompted me to check this out.

It's a pretty straightforward horror story, with the narrator, Laura, telling about the time a young woman named Carmilla became a guest in her home under odd circumstances. Laura feels herself drawn to and yet troubled by Carmilla's languid beauty and weird habit of sleeping late in a locked room. And then local women start dying and Laura has strange visitations in the night that leave her weakened and fading. Hmmmmm . . .

The narrative is slowed by other characters showing up to tell long stories that are supposed to seem unrelated but are obviously highly relevant.

Due to it's time of origin the story comes off as problematic by queer coding the villain to lean into the psycho killer lesbian trope. But the edition I read has been edited by Carmen Maria Machado, and she plays with the meaning of the story in her introduction (which engages in a little literary hoax to add to the fun) and intrudes in the story itself via footnotes with some pertinent information and cutting asides. (By the way, the introduction and footnote #7 should have spoiler alerts and should be read after the story if such spoilers bother you.)

Machado also edits the original text "to reflect a more modern grammatical sensibility where necessary." For example the opening line, "In Styria, we, though by no means magnificent people, inhabit a castle, or schloss." becomes, "In Styria, we—though by no means magnificent people—inhabit a manor-house."

If you prefer to read the original, the full text is in public domain and available online:
