Teeth Which Gleam Long

by Maureen Puffer-Rothenberg on August 31, 2009 in Odum Library

Most of our Charlaine Harris books (the ones about Sookie Stackhouse) are checked out at the moment, but we can recommend:

Classics from Polidori, Le Fanu, and Stoker in Three Vampire Tales

Vittorio, the Vampire from Anne Rice, pioneer of the modern gothic vampire tale

Jeanne Kalogridis’ Covenant with the Vampire: the Diaries of the Family Dracul, according to Library Journal “erotic and gory enough for any vampire fan.”

“The lips which will be markedly full and red are drawn back from the teeth which gleam long, sharp as razors, and ivory white.”

–Montague Summers in The Vampire, His Kith and Kind (1928)

The People's Poet says:

Teeth Which Gleam Long
Well-Enamelled, white & strong
Protrude from my apple
So, so wrong

“The lips which will be markedly full and red are drawn back from the teeth which gleam long, sharp as razors, and ivory white.”

That is truly an excellent line. Thanks for the post, loved it!
