After looking back on my previous definition of a zombie, and now hang ENGL 3722 under my belt, I thought about my definition of a zombie, and what it is now, and I have to say, I would not change the way I view zombies. I still feel that zombies have to have greenish/greyish skin, as well as have to be missing some body parts, like an eyeball or a limb. I also feel that the only way to kill them is to shot them in the head, and they have to be monsters that all they want to do is kill you, as well pass on the plague through their bite.
Many of the readings we did followed my definition of a zombie, like World War Z and Pride and Prejudice+ Zombies. Although, unlike in Pride and Prejudice + Zombies, my view of zombies is once you are bit, you are going to become a full-fledged zombie, and do not have to eat human brains to do so.
I have never been a huge fans of zombies, but if someone asked me this question last year, this would be my response: That it is a dead human/monster that is after your brains, and you should do everything in your power to stay clear of them. A zombie is not someone who succumbs to the plague, but can still be reasoned with, but someone, even if it was your best friend,just wants to eat you know.
