Twilight and History, edited by Nancy R. Reagin, is an absolute must for any Twilight fan. Each Cullen was turned during a specific historical, social, and cultural point in history and this context defines each one, and their attitudes, relationships, and behaviors throughout the Saga. I've not only read this book once, I've read it twice, and will go back to it again, because it's informative, entertaining and insightful. Reagin has collected a treasure trove of essays by academics who explore their subjects in readable style. I enjoyed all the essays (even those with points of view with which I disagreed), but especially those that explored: Quileute history and Jacob; the manners, mores, and courting practices of Edward's day, and why he is more Victorian than cusp-of-Jazz Age Edwardian; why the Voluturi are like the Medicis; how the Cullen teens adapted their roles to fit changing times over the 20th Century, and how Twilight invokes fairy tales and the American Dream (an examination of Meyer's Mormon beliefs would have taken this essay even further-see Spotlight: A Close-Up Look at the Artistry and Meaning of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Saga by John Granger). The character studies, though, were my favorites, in particular, Elizabeth Baird Hardy's two essays that rescue Jasper (Southern man) and Emmett (Appalachian man) from tired stereotype, showing how they reflect their times and experiences. Grace Loiacono and Laura Loiacono do a fine job examining the history of mental health treatment and the appalling mental asylums of Alice's day. Twilight and History is an invaluable companion to the Twilight Saga.
