    Den mångfacetterade vampyren: En undersökning av vampyrens roll i min roman2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The first vampire film I ever saw was Interview with a vampire. “I haven’t been human for two hundred years”, opened up not only the film, but a whole new world I knew nothing about. The world, as it were, opened its doors to me again after I had seen the film adaption of Stephenie Meyers Twilight. I decided to write down a few thoughts, capture my frame of mind, and these paragraphs then turned into a text: “I tankarnas skal”.

                  When I did research for this essay I discovered that my text held certain similarities with the modern vampire novel. Because my story is so closely connected to Meyers Twilight, my character Jennie projects the story of human Bella and vampire Edward onto her own life; I have chosen to focus on Twilight and the Twilight-saga as primary sources of comparison with my own text. Jennies healthy philosophies, after seeing Twilight, soon turns into disturbing thoughts in a mind damaged by her unkind reality. Jennie starts hallucinating, seeing Edward everywhere, and this is the object of my investigation. Ever since the legend of the vampire was transformed in the literary world, vampires have acted as symbols for everything between Aids and terrorist threats. Therefore I examined my Edward to see what symbolic role he had in my story.

                  I chose three themes to further explore the connection between my text and Meyers Twilight-saga, thereby unveiling the warning-signs that Edward personify, on Jennie’s road to her death.
