clearly i've always been fascinated by the femme fatale. the vamp. the romantic tragedy of What I'm Doing. this was a pretty wonderful summary of the deathly goddess from ancient pop culture through literature, and ultimately film. loved it. now have a list of things to read and watch. right up my alley.
