Final Project Proposal
For my final project I would like to continue to explore the idea of the evolution of the vampire. I think in most of the novels we have read involve some sort of evolution/change experienced by the main characters. I enjoyed picking apart the passages of Interview very much. Once you look between the lines of Rice's novel, a lot can be discovered about the character progression. I would like to compare Louis with Neville from I am Legend. Although Neville is not a vampire, he shares the same transformation/uniqueness in the society which he lives. Neville is the sole human left in a world of vampires, and Louis is the only vampire who still holds onto his humanity. Like Louis, Neville eventually looses his fight to grip his reality and shape it into a more desirable one. This is a powerful and interesting comparison.
