Summary "The essays in this volume explore Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series in the contexts of literature, religion, fairy tales, film, and the gothic. Some look at fan involvement in the Twilight world. Topics include Meyer's use of Quileute shape-shifting legends; Twilight's literary heritage and its references to classic works of literature; and the series's controversial depictions of femininity"--Provided by publisher.
