Summary
Contemporary vampiric literature illustrates a different folkloric vampire than in the preceding centuries. The vampire protagonists in novels by Stephenie Meyer, Robin McKinley, and Nora Roberts are reformed and living "vegetarian" lifestyles while doing their utmost to preserve humanity. Functional analysis of these folkloric vampires explains the purpose of the reformation, which is the authors' reaction to the permissive nature of modern society and its tolerance of many actions previously deemed unacceptable. These contemporary vampires revolt against this societal norm and posit that utilizing agency confirms humanity and individuality
