Alex Causor | 2 comments I read this book in college in 2013 at UC Santa Barbara. The book taught writing conventions such as purpose of genre, how to analyze symbols, and explained motifs and character archetypes. I also think that the author talked about the hero's journey in one of the chapters. In the introduction of the book, i specifically remember that the author gave an example of how any book character that preys upon the weak and helpless and lures their victims with charm and beauty could be seen as a vampire archetype.
