Filipino Vampire Supposedly responsible for
planting taro on the islands
long ago. The myth continued
that the Danag worked with
humans for many years, but
the partnership ended one
day when a woman cut her
finger and a Danag sucked
her wounded, enjoying the
taste so much that it drained
her body completely of blood. The Romanian
Varacolaci A powerful undead
being who could
appear as a beautiful,
pale-skinned human. The Slovak
Nelapsi A creature so strong
and fast it could
massacre and entire
village in the single
hour after midnight. The Stregoni benefici An Italian vampire,
said to be on the
side of goodness,
and a mortal enemy
of all evil vampires. Place where the Cullen's lives The class Twilight has basicly three classes: human, vampire and werewolf. As we know, werewolf may the only one can control vampire. A long long time ago werewolf often catched them and exposed them to the pale-faces, who is human. The Cullens try to be different by drink animal's blood instead of human's blood so Jacob's grand father made the rule that the Vampire can't go into werewolf's land. " They didn't hunt the way others of their kind did- they weren't supposed to be dangerous to the tribe. So my great-grandfather made a truce with them. If they would promise to stay off our land, we wouldn't expose them to the palefaces." ( Meyer, 125) Carlisle Cullen
Esme Cullen Emmett Cullen
Rosalie Hale Jasper Hale
Alice Cullen Edward Cullen They didn't hunt the way other of their kind did - they weren't supposed to be dangerous to the tribe. So my great-grandfather made a truce with them. If they would promise to stay off our lands, we wouldn't expose them to the pale-faces. (P125) So that why the Cullens have to respect the rule Jacob's grandfather made and they can't go to the beach. " The Cullens don't come here." (Meyer, 121) Naturally, werewolf are the one
against vampire. Billy, who is
Jacob's father couldn't turn to wolf
because at the time he grew
up, there are no vampire around
the town, but Jacob could because of
the Cullens. "I can't sleep"P186.
"He said you didn't hunt...people. He said your family wasn't supposed to be dangerous because you only hunt animals"P186. "Other accuses Twilight of being "a how-to manual for an abusive relationship" (Voynar, 2008, p.2) "anti-feminist message present in the narratives, such as the perceived negative characterization of the female protagonists and the problematic representation of female sexuality" (37) "I'd compare it to living on tofu and soy milk; we call ourselves vegetarians...it doesn't completely satiate the hunger...but it keeps us strong enouph to resist"P188. "Anti-feminist characters and an anachronistic setting which forced modern readers into the mindset of a previous time in which 'women were property and only received validation from men's opinions of them'" (p. 1) "The principal 'male characters, Edward Cullen and Jacob Black, are muscular and unwaveringly brave, while Bella and other girls bake cookies, make supper for the men and hold all-female slumber parties' (p. B7). To add to some already problematic characterizations, Bella is consistently depicted as the damsel in distress forever in need if rescue by a male" (40). Impact About vampires
---Speed
"You're going a hundred miles an hour! (P181)---Bella"
Unexpectedly, he was on his feet, bounding away, instantly out of sight, only to appear beneath the same tree as before, having circled the meadow in half a second (P264).
---Strength
A groaning metallic thud hurt my ears, and the van settled, glass popping, onto the asphalt (P56).
He reached up with one hand, and with a deafening crack, effortlessly ripped a two-foot-thick branch from the trunk of the spruce.
---Skin
His skin was cold and hard, like a stone (P174).
His skin, white despite the faint flush from yesterday's hunting trip, literally sparkled, like thousands of tiny diamonds were embedded in the surface (P260).
---Eyes
I vividly remembered the flat black color was striking against the background of his pale skin and his auburn hair. Today, his eyes were a completely different color: a strange ocher, darker than butterscotch, but with the same golden tone (P46). " First, his beauty sets him apart from everyone else in Fork. Second, Edward's celebrity is established through his vrious gift. Third, Edward's celebrity is also evidence by the way Bella's status among her peers is tied to the privilege of keeping Edward 's company."( Aubrey, 227) Dracula Edward Cullen becomes the dream boy for every young girl. He is beautiful, talent and he has attention. "The first half of Dracula is full of villainous portrayals of women; the most striking these are "the child-eating vampire women" who attempt to molest Jonathan Harker while he is lodging with the count in his Transylvania castle in order to oversee a real estate transaction"(Demetrakopoulos, 1977, p. 104). Relationship between Meyer and Twilight Bella is a really normal girl and most of young teen girls see themself on her. They all wish one day they will be noticed by some handsome, talent boy like Edward Cullen. Mormon teaching to eat meat and poultry "sparingly." Mormon work ethic and traditional roles for women. Mormon teaching is that marriages are eternity “By vigorously promoting images of bestial women” (p. 886) “In place of the monstrous sexual appetites of Stoker’s somewhat marginalized vampire women is the rage of a monstrous girl vampire against her infantilization and dependence in a world defined by the fathers” (p. 24). Although Rice gives her female vampires more power than their Victorian predecessors, and utilizes them to raise questions concerning women’s subordination, their depictions are still problematic in that they are demonized and dehumanized, and they denote the stereotype of the man-hating feminist (Antoni, 2008) "Moreover, Bella's most intense l, initial pleasure of being with Edward is the thrill that he has chosen her above all others. the fact that no other women interested him before Bella plays into a key component of the fantasies young girls have about celebrity crushes: that someday they will be singled out and admired by their idol. " ( Aubrey, 228) Mormon abstain from alcohol, caffeine, drugs, and impure behaviors No sex before marriage
The Cullens abstain from human blood





The character of Bella:avoid coffee, tea, alcohol and tobacco
No cohabitation "Twilight borrows from a long-standing tradition of narratives criticized for their portrayals of gender and sexuality and thus inherits similar critiques. In comparing vampire texts produced in different time period, directed at different audiences, and even delivered though different media formats, it is clear that they all could be found problematic in one way or other. Despite being produced and consumed in different epochs, various vampire narratives have been accused of being hostile toward female sexuality (Doane & Hodges, 1990; Roth, 1977; Siering, 2009) and of being overly concerned with the purity of their female characters (Rafferty, 2008; Seifert, 2009; Siering & Spillar, 2009; Wasserman 1977). " Conclusion "Nonetheless, Twilight wills surely remain in the spotlight as an easy target for feminist critique" (51) The author gives teenager a love may only happen in a story. A normal girl can dates with the special boy. Who is totally has a different world with her. The man who can take care of her deeply. Bella advises her father to "cut back on steak," Women cook for men
Bella's frequent cooking and cleaning--household chores Thank you! Women always need to be protected by men. They are weak and they always need to follow what men say. Religion Meyer and Mormon Meyer, Stephanie. Twilight.
