The Vampire Poetry panel conducted by Val Toh and myself at Conflux 13 was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Most of the audience seemed to like it too! Here are your panelists, getting into the spirit of things.



For general interest, this was our playlist.

"Christobel, Part One" by Samuel Taylor Colerige (1797). Extracts read by Val Toh.

"The Vampire" by Charles Baudelaire (1857). Trans. William Aggeler. Read by Val Toh.

"The Vampire" by Conrad Aiken (1916). Read by Kyla Ward.

"Oil and Blood", William Butler Yeats(1933). Read by Kyla Ward.

"Sanguine Taggers" by Anne K. Schwader (2011). Read by Kyla Ward.

"Like Angels, Winged" by Michael R. Burch (2013?). Read by Val Toh.

"The Music of Vampires" by Bruce Boston (2015). Read by Kyla Ward.

In most cases, poems have been dated to their collection.

The passage I read concerning the Leanann Sidhe came from Yeats's Fairy and Folk Tales of the Irish Peasantry (1888).
