This thesis aims to study the case of representations of the literary vampire, articulating some thoughts around their first appearances in the cultural landscape of the Eighteenth Century, spreading across three important texts of the Nineteenth Century by the novelists Polidori, Le Fanu and Stoker. Such imagetic settings are an important step for the study of the two cases of vampire characters in African Portuguese literatures: "O mistério da Rua da Missão", by Ana Paula Tavares, and "M. de Malaria",by José Eduardo Agualusa. Situated within contemporary Angolan literary scene, we will do an approach of these texts wich point a contextual coherence of its protagonists with the postcolonial aesthetic proposals.
