Abstract [en]

This paper will focus on the homosexuality and homoeroticism that can be found in Anne Rice’s novel Interview With The Vampire using Queer theory. The paper is divided into four parts in which different aspects of the novel will be discussed. Firstly the discussion focuses on the homoeroticism which is abundant in Rice’s novel. The second part covers the subject of identity and Louis’ quest to find out what and why he is. Next the issue of family within the vampyric world is examined using the family unit that Louis, Lestat and Claudia make as its basis. Lastly the question of why the ‘gender-free’ love which is present in Interview With The Vampire is important to the vampire genre is answered.
