The point of view in “Twilight” is told from the first person point of view. It is from Bella’s perspective. The atmosphere is usually cold, damp and cloudy. I am not just talking about the weather. As one might guess, with vampires being some of the main characters the atmosphere is suspenseful, the story mostly takes place in the state of Washington, which is rarely sunny so the reader gets the mood of overcast skies and dark secrets. Bella is the protagonist. She is an accident prone teen who believes in the idea that if it can go wrong, it will go wrong. She does not have a good self image and is very often asking herself why anyone would be interested in her. She finds herself dull and uninteresting. Two of the other main characters in the story are Edward Cullen and Jacob Black. FOIL works for these two characters because they both like Bella and they are complete opposites. Edward is beautiful to look at, he is rich, and he is a vampire. Jacob Black, the son of a tribal elder of the Quileutes tribe. He lives on a reservation and is not rich. Jacob is also a “werewolf.” These two characters are like opposite sides of the same coin and work well I the FOIL concept.
Some of the themes in Twilight are about love, mainly the love between Edward and Bella. This could include the idea that love will overcome all obstacles, or that young/first love can still be true love, or even that opposites attract. Some of the other themes would involve believing in yourself (Bella needs to do this), trusting your instincts (Bella with Edward or with the situation about James), or the importance of family (Bella with her parents or the Cullens).
Some significant quotes are:
"You're so ready for this to be the twilight of your life, but your life has barely begun." (Edward to Bella during prom)
"And so the lion fell in love with the lamb." (during the meadow scene)
"Be safe." (Edward's note to Bella)
Good luck with your report!
