Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A timely collection of scholarly essays on Stephanie Meyer s enormously popular Twilight series which, for better or for worse, has fundamentally altered our reading and understanding of vampires . . .a valuable resource for academics and non-academics alike, not only to trace the cultural and literary impact of the Twilight series, but also to help provide clear literary analysis and cultural contextualization." - Franz J. Potter, Associate Professor, National University

"Shattering the notion that Twilight is not worthy of academic study, Bringing Light to Twilight offers diverse array of approaches to the saga from a wide range of disciplines. An illuminating analysis of the series, this anthology is a discerning response to the Twilight phenomenon and a must-read for scholars of popular culture, media studies, and literature." - Natalie Wilson, author of Seduced by Twilight: The Allure and Contradictory Messages of the Popular Saga
