Plot:
Laura grows up quite lonely with her father in a remote castle in Styria. She wants nothing more than a companion. When a carriage accident brings Carmilla, a girl her age, to the castle, Laura is overjoyed. But the two girls also realize that they know each other from their childhood dreams. Carmilla is a mysterious girl who seems to be hiding something – Laura doesn’t know what it could be.

Carmilla is a beautiful staple of the vampire genre (and it is set in Styria, which I didn’t know. as an Austrian, I find that particularly nice), and a lovely queer classic. I really enjoyed it.

Carmilla by J. Sheridan Lefanu is one of the earliest vampire works, predating Dracula by 26 years. This is a novella length tale of Carmilla, a female vampire, who arrives at a European manor house under mysterious conditions and yet is invited to stay there for a few months. The young lady who lives at the manor, Laura, and Carmilla become fast friends. But the surrounding area seems under a curse as many young girls fall victim to a strange wasting disease that eventually takes their lives.

When Laura starts showing symptoms of the same disease, her father summons medical, religious and spiritual help yet it is only when an old friend comes to visit and tells his story about how a vampire took his loved one from him, that the pieces are put together and Carmilla is exposed.

Unfortunately I didn’t have a very good translation of this story so in addition to an interesting vampire tale, I also had a puzzle to solve with figuring out the strange translation. For example the word ‘candy’ was used in place of sweet, and “pricey” was used in place of dear. So the phrase my ‘pricey candy girl’ meant my dear, sweet girl. Luckily, I found this more amusing than irritating.

I did enjoy the story and noticed many standard vampire traits that are still in use today. Carmilla is the prototype of female vampires and hints at the lesbianism that is so often used in stories about female vampires. She selects only female victims and often becomes emotionally involved with them. She is extremely beautiful, is able to walk through walls and has an animal alter ego as a huge black cat.

Carmilla is an intriguing Gothic vampire story that still works today. ( )

It's a classic vampire story from 1872, 26 years before Le Fanu's fellow-countryman Bram Stoker wrote Dracula. It's a much shorter book; the protagonist is a young Anglo-Styrian noblewoman, Laura, whose friend Carmilla is not quite what she seems. Carmilla's vampirism is pretty clearly a lesbian seduction as well; there are a lot of interesting parallels with Dracula, including the first person narrative, sleepwalking, the symptoms of vampirism and the expert who comes in to solve it all (Baron Vordenburg here is the precursor to Van Helsing). The ending is not executed all that gracefully (too much of the important action is offscreen), but otherwise it's a fun, quick read. ( )

Carmilla was a sensual and erotic horror story. I mean erotic in its most classically Gothic sense. It was thrilling and exciting and I couldn't stop reading it. This was a superb read and one that I know I will return to again. I loved it so much I've added it to my list of old/first editions I'm looking to acquire!

I think this is the type of book that Mary Wollstonecraft, Percy Shelley, Lord Byron and John Polidori would have been thrilled to read by Lake Geneva. Of course, it wasn't published for another 56 years, but one can imagine.

Un roman gothique dans toute sa splendeur, avec de l’horreur, de la sensualité, du religieux, et du fantastique médiéval.

La vampire est une femme magnifique et sa victime l’est tout autant. Un livre paru en 1871 qui inspira certainement Bram Stocker pour écrire son Dracula vingt-six ans plus tard et qui en fera un chef d’oeuvre. ( )
