Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

HGenerally acknowledged as a major influence on Bram Stoker's Dracula, this novel, originally published in 1872, is the very first vampire thriller. Le Fanu, often compared to Poe, was a Victorian writer whose tales of the occult have inspired horror writers for more than a century. Seemingly by happenstance, the mysterious and beautiful Carmilla comes to stay with the young and virtuous Laura. Laura, who has been living a lonely existence with her father in an isolated castle, finds herself enchanted with her exotic visitor. As the two become close friends, however, Laura dreams of nocturnal visitations and begins to lose her physical strength. Through much investigation, the gruesome truth about Carmilla and her family is revealed. Though the basic premise of the story, that of evil targeting pure innocence, is familiar to anyone who is vampire savvy, this haunting tale is surprisingly fresh, avoids clich? and builds well to its climax. Particularly interesting are the sexual overtones that develop between the two women. Follows's reading is flawless. In particular, her ability to capture Laura's na?vet? so convincingly will have listeners feeling almost as shocked as Laura as the unwholesome truth unravels. (Sept.)

Review

"Costello-Sullivan's critical edition of "Carmilla" is particularly welcome as a text for undergraduates.  In addition to offering an annotated text of the work, Costello-Sullivan (Le Moyne College) provides a useful, concise introduction to the story, including an overview of major critical approaches."  --Highly recommended. R.D. Morrison, Morehead State University, CHOICE Current Reviews for Academic Libraries, February 2014

A compelling argument about the role of race in contemporary Irish culture --Lauren Onkey, author of Blackness and Transatlantic Irish Identity
