Read the background info on the soucouyant, available here:
Pay attention to the specific attributes of the soucouyant, and consider how this creature is and is not like the vampire of European folklore.
The figure of the soucouyant still lives in Caribbean culture, and many Caibbean authors have referenced the soucouyant in their works. One of these, Jamaican writer Nalo Hopkinson, has always been drawn to fantastical, supernatural, or futuristic stories. In this short clip, Hopkinson talks about how she was inspired to write this style of fiction:
(BTW, this is not directly relevant to what we are working on in this class, but there's a great, very short, video of Hopkinson talking about Afrofuturism, called "Sci-fi: Why it's Radical for Black People to Imagine the Future" which I would recommend if you're interested to learn more about her.)

Hopkinson explains that, as a writer, she has been influenced by both the local tradition of Jamaican writers, but also the history of Western literature, which makes her works an excellent touchpoint to examine the relationship between different cultural imaginings of the vampire figure.
