Major Dissertation - Angela Carter & 'The Lady in the House of Love'

Still bimbling on with the vampire stories. Polidori's one seems straightforward enough as so does le Fanu's Carmilla - but Dracula is one that I am not sure where I am going to go with this, exactly.  However, something drew my attention - a female vampire written by a credible female writer - Angela Carter!!  Her of the Bluebeard/Bloody Chamber which I wrote for my mini dissertation!!!  Most excellent - maybe I can get myself out of a literary hole with her help? Her story is called The Lady in the House of Love and it is founded on her radio play Vampirella.

This is surely a sign? My previous lecturer gave me Nights at the Circus by Angela Carter back in June, though I wasn't going to use it as my major diss piece.  Interesting, n'es pa?
