      So often in vampire books and films, the vampire is no more than a cardboard monster to be hunted down and killed. Carmilla is an unusual (and very early) example of a vampire who is attractive, emotional, articulate, passionate, likable, vulnerable – a very human creature, in other words. Called Gothic because its imaginative impulse was drawn from medieval buildings and ruins, such novels commonly used such settings as castles or monasteries equipped with subterranean passages, dark battlements, hidden panels, and trapdoors. The vogue was initiated in England by Horace Walpole’s immensely successful Castle of Otranto (). His most respectable follower was Ann Radcliffe.
