Critical Analysis of Twilight Club

I don't like Twilight. I find the characters shallow; the plot boring and cliche; and the hidden messages frightening. But in the hands of another 作者 - someone who wouldn't let their religious upbringing, their misogynistic views, and their twisted romantic ideals colour the story - it could have been really fantastic.

First off, the grammar would have to be fixed. The purple prose minimised and the 全体, 全体的です 書く polished up.

次 the characters would have to be made realistic, their actions have an effect on the plot, and their history an effect on them.

Take Rosalie, for example. If Rosalie's character had been a commentary on how a traumatic experience can effect you. How losing her humanity and perfect had turned her cold and 苦い because she had everything she ever wanted before it was all taken away from her. Instead Meyer created Rosalie because she needed a blonde 雌犬 to fill the role of someone to hate Bella. Rosalie's rape and tragic past had no effect on Rosalie as a character. Meyer used rape as a plot device and as another way to 表示する how women are helpless and need to be saved によって men.

Leah, is another character who had so much wasted potential. Her being the only female 狼, オオカミ seems to be a metaphor for transgender people - a female in a male's body - または how being infertile can affect a person. Instead of treating this subject with the delicacy and sympathy it deserved and needed she 'othered' Leah and flat out called her less of a woman because of her inability to reproduce.

Bella. If Stephenie Meyer had created an actual character instead of a vacuum for teenage girls around the world to fill themselves they whole saga would have been improved. Ana Mardoll often writes about how Bella, instead of wanting to become a vampire to be with her "Twoo Luv" forever and ever despite the devastating effect this would have on her parents, could have wanted to become a vampire to overcome her disability - her clumsiness. Bella falls over A LOT. This would lead to Bella being in pain all the time, as a vampire Bella would be graceful and indestructible, a near perfect solution to her not being in pain.

If Bella had being an actual person and responded to things the way a normal person would have, Twilight could have been an educational read for young girls on how to deal with dangerous men. If Bella had been frightened of Edward instead of falling in 愛 with him. Stephenie could have written a book which teaches girls how to react to creepy boys who had admitted to killing people; stalk あなた to the point of breaking into your bedroom to watch あなた sleep at night without your consent; and control your actions with physical force and emotional manipulation.

Twilight could have been a commentary on how society 閲覧数 women as objects and how boys often view girls as property and conquests without realising it. Mike, for example, repeatedly refuses to acknowledge Bella's cues and keeps harassing her about her relationship with Edward. Despite her discomfort he continues to express interest in her romantically, indicating that his desire to 日付 her comes before her desire to feel safe. He also sulks and is outwardly displeased with Bella's choice of Edward, 芝居 as though he had some sort of claim to Bella. Instead of pointing out how distressing this very real attitude is to the girls who come across it Stephenie tells us that Mike is just trying to be a good friend and that he's just jealous, not doing anything wrong.

Twilight vamps&other people;

Don't have fangs,
sparke in sunshine,
live on animal blood and call themselves veggies,
don't have a lumpy face,
live in really rich mansions(?),
don't have souls but are completely lame like rehabilitated drug-users(that never took drugs),
Can't be staked
Are looked (from the fangirls view)upon as superior beings that don't hurt anyone and call themselves dangerous
Stalk young girls only to seem romantic
Fall inlove with small children and beg to be their lover while they are like 16(just 12)
Don't belong in sassy teenage crap that is pure drama

They arenot vampires...

Note: It’s important for me to communicate that I don’t know the 作者 of Twilight または her family personally and I do not intend them any insult; this 記事 is purely academic speculation inspired によって a story which will remain a timeless work of art. It is the emotional accessibility of the work which makes commentary such as this possible. I may be projecting the whole thing… But that’s exactly why Twilight is so successful, because it invites us so welcomingly into the story!

Every ファン knows the story of the Twilight Saga.
There are many theories as to what makes the story such a pop-culture...

Lately, I've heard and seen jokes and コメント about Edward being "pathetic" または "gay" because he was a 100 年 old virgin. I've written this 記事 to state that I see no problem in him being a virgin. I feel that virginity is not something to poke fun at. It simply means that someone wants to save themselves for that special someone whom they are going to spend the rest of their life with. I myself am a virgin and plan to stay that way until I get married.

However, I am somewhat confused. If Edward has lived for 100 years and has yet to give himself to anyone, then why does he decide to have...

There are three (3) big categories of abuse. These are the ones that happen on a daily basis, and they are not at all uncommon :( In Twilight, all three of these abusive categories are represented によって a character. They are grouped as follows:

Psychological Abuse: Edward Cullen
Sexual Abuse: Jacob Black
Physical Abuse: Sam Uley

Now, あなた Twilighters are probably thinking, "Whaa-? That's ridiculous!" No, actually, it is not, if あなた will give me a chance to explain.

Edward Cullen does indeed abuse Bella psychologically. He constantly refers to her stupidity and her clumsiness. Some may call this "keeping...

hi this is my first rant ever hope あなた like it

im a twilight ファン but i hate bella
for several things

first of all when あなた first read the book あなた have the idea that BELLA is very contempt with herself and a normal looking teenage girl that is very unselfish and very kind and loving and warm and falls in 愛 with a vampire and she would do anything for him ..right..

ok but if あなた concentrate and look beyond all the adjectives s.meyer uses for descriving how beautiful and sparkly edward is and really LOOK at the story and at their characters あなた will realize the truth about bella that is

こんにちは there! So recently I just put a Bella and Jacob article, which I really enjoyed writing, and of course sharing my opinions. Some people have 発言しました they would want me to write a 記事 here about Edward Cullen, so here it is! Hope あなた enjoy it!

Now, there's no way あなた haven't heard of him. He is currently every girls dream boy, has the most ファン on ファンポップ when it comes to character, and alos has a cult. Everyone loves him.
But my 質問 is...why?
They say he's romantic, a gentleman. Really? So what if he uses chessy lines and says stuff like "You are my life now." または "The lion fell in love...

I've talked about some of the things that crossed my mind when 読書 Twilight in the past. Thoughts such as "when is Bella going to freak out about the Edward watching her sleep thing?" "Did that say sparkling? I've re-read that passage like, four times and it still seems to say sparkling" "Does Stephanie Meyer think deer is a vegetable? no, really does she? Does she think あなた can call yourself a vegetarian if あなた don't eat things like people または those monkeys who know sign language?"
But those are valid thoughts that many people 読書 the 本 also thought (well, maybe not specifically...
