Sample text

Common sense told me I should be terrified,” Bella notes as she reconciles these different facets of the boy who has captured her heart. “Instead, I was relieved to finally understand. And I was filled with compassion for his suffering, even now, as he confessed his craving to take my life” (Twilight). This is the crux of Edward, and perhaps the key aspect of him that moves Bella so deeply and so thoroughly. He is in many ways a monster, and he definitely has violent and unspeakable urges. He makes mistakes, and he takes reckless chances, some of which jeopardize the very people he so wishes to cherish and protect.

Well, Twilight is a little like Romeo and Juliet, except one of the pair is already dead. Meyer nods to this by opening New Moon with a quote from the play. Within the first chapter, Bella and Edward are discussing the similarities (sort of) between their relationship and that of Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers, and I’m patting myself on the back for my masterful insight. It’s the parallels to Shakespeare’s play that keep readers turning pages.

When Edward first saves Bella’s life in Twilight, he lies about aspects of that as well. ” Bella inquires. “I was standing right next to you, Bella,” Edward responds, even though he was clearly beside his own vehicle as the accident began to occur. He then tries to deflect Bella’s suspicion and curiosity at the hospital by first lying about the fact that he promised to give her an explanation, then treating her with derision when she relates her version of the accident.
