    Conflict in the Twilight When has war ever been fair, just or necessary? Yet, we all wage wars. In my opinion all wars are a result of the breakdown of the rules of society which leads to the polarization of sensibility and reason. The root cause of the problem is usually trivial compared to the consequential disaster. No reason can warrant the taking of precious innocent lives; yet wars take place despite the wisdom and the best efforts of the human race, almost as if they are preordained

    The Twilight Saga tells the story of a young woman named Bella Swan and her love interest, Edward Cullen. Stephenie Meyer has said that the idea for the Twilight Saga came from a dream she had. In her dream, Meyer had a vision of an unbelievably perfect male being and an average teenage girl (cite). The odd pair, obviously in a state of infatuation with each other, was sitting in a small, round meadow when all of a sudden; the male reveals himself to the young woman as a vampire (Sykley 262)

Still, no one has credited the Cullen’s in the way that they display family

I now thought of myself as one of the thousand other crazed girls who felt exactly as I did after reading the Twilight Saga.

    read in 2005 called “Twilight.” Although this book was viewed as a typical love story, it set an example of a perfect couple to me as a reader.

As the book began it sets a feeling of displeasure or disgust that Bella seemed to have thought Edward had for her, but as the story went on his feelings were different than she thought. He was definitely obsessed with Bella. In the book “Twilight”, Bella and Edward differ
