Abstract

This paper examines the use of metaphoric representations of vampires in judicial writing. Although relatively unexplored in the literature of vampire studies, in both of these cases vampire imagery reflects the cultural milieu of the author and acts as a barometer to popular attitudes.

Keywords: Vampire, metaphor, law as literature
