”Quand le mythe du vampire rencontre celui du Viking : Le monstre devenu un héros (sur)humain dans Vampire Diaries et The Originals”

Abstract : The vampires of the television series Vampire Diaries and its spin-off The Originals are modern representatives of this mythical figure. They are human vampires with feelings and extraordinary abilities who try to control their monstrous side. However, Nordic myths merge with the vampire imaginary world. This article identifies the Nordic elements present in these series, especially through the Mikaelson family who are at the same time the first vampires and Vikings defined by an honor code. Several bridges exist between the myth of the vampire and that of the Viking (the importance of blood, the seidr, the phenomenon of berserkir ...) The connection with the Viking myth thus allows the image of the vampire to evolve.
