The story of Chugoro is a classic vampire tale. Although, it doesn’t strictly follow the most common idea of what a vampire is; it carries many of the themes within it. Chugoro is the main protagonist in the story. Chugoro falls in love with a woman and continues to pursue the love despite it clearly being against his better judgement. He marries her on a spur of the moment decision made under a supernatural spell.
Byronic Hero: Mr. Rochester A Byronic hero is someone who is charismatic with strong passions and beliefs, but who are nonetheless deeply flawed individuals who may act in ways which are socially reprehensible because he's definitely contrary to his mainstream society. (“Byronic Hero”) Authors have been known to try and make their characters this unique kind of hero. I think authors like to depict this kind of hero because they are realistic but they do have a bit of fantasy to them. Most Byronic heroes actually tend to be vampires just because it’s common for them to be very attractive and what all women dream of having but yet they do have a dark side and normally troubled past. When it comes to romance they are the best types of heroes to use because they are the type of men most women dream of having.
Is true love worth risking everything? That is the question I found myself asking as I began reading Twilight. At first some may chose not to read the books or see the movie because they feel a story based on vampires and werewolves is a little unbelievable. Twilight is about more than fictional characters and that is what attracted my attention to the series. It takes us on a journey of discovering that when true love is amazingly strong one can overcome any battle.

I think Poe’s character choice of twins and a narrator kept the short story simple, but left enough room for character development through the supernatural effects. Poe’s readers may have had different expectations from this short story, but I found “The Fall of the House of Ush... ... middle of paper ... ...he Madman as an Artist OR name idk change it). Personally, I do not agree with Marmon’s theory. I never at all thought that she was a vampire, and after rereading the short story I still do not think she is a vampire. The vampire motif does create an even more eerie mood to the story, but I still think otherwise in Madeline’s character.
Elena had a normal life until it was interrupted by meeting Stefan Salvator a 165 year old vampire. Unlike the Vampire Diaries, Twilight has Bella Swan. She seems like an awkward shy teenager. Bella moved to Forks, Washington to have a better father-daughter relationship with her dad. Both Bella’s parents are divorce and share custody; which is why Bella had to move to Forks.
The male was perceived as the stronger of the sexes, and women were relegated to a voiceless and submissive role.

One of the genre were supernatural features are most common is Gothic novel and vampire stories. Vampire lives are full of supernatural events and characteristics. They themselves are supernatural. By reading vampire fiction, people recklessly drop into the abyss of darkness and magic that cannot be explained and understood in natural or scientific way. This supernatural atmosphere attracts the readers and makes them to wish to see it by their own eyes even if it frightens.
While Catherine only reads gothic novels, Henry argues that there are also valuable types of literature, particularly history. Catherine’s opinion of history books is a humorous one, as she says “to be labouring only for the torment of little boys and girls; and though I know it is all very right and necessary, I have often wondered at the person’s courage that could sit down on purp... ... middle of paper ... ...inues to explain how Catherine was only describing a new novel and her vivid imagination and description was construed by Eleanor as riots and terror in the streets of London. If anything could be said positive of Catherine’s character at this moment is that she is enthusiastic and she could be a very good storyteller. Chapter fourteen of Northanger Abbey has many good discussions on literature, and what makes it so valuable in the novel is Catherine’s character. If Catherine was not in the novel, the discussion of literature may come across as unnecessary, and without the humor Austen places these discussions in, the concepts and ideas of literature might come across as preachy and would not stand out as ideal concepts that later mold Catherine’s growth as a character.
Maple emphasizes how deep and rare the love between the two adolescents is, and I would argue that human’s innate desire for this kind of love is one of the reasons why Twilight became so widespread. However, I argue that another basis for the obsession of the books is simply because the Cullen’s, the family in which Edward belongs to, represent vampires in a contrasting light than most vampire architypes represent. Although most analysts hone in on the fact that Meyer characterizes the vampires more romantically than any other vampire depiction at that point in history, I argue, based on evidence from the book series, that The Cullen’s are not given the full picture they
