The immensely popular series has been incredibly polarizing among fandom.
One side side, teen girls reading the series, which included my own a few years ago, see someone they can identify with in Bella and a fascinating new world where they can escape. Older female readers love the fantasy and romance of it all.
One the other side, feminists claim Twilight promotes stalking by men and teaches teen girls to be submissive and that getting married and having children is the ultimate goal of any woman.
And then there are the male geeks who roll their eyes and make fun of vampires that sparkle.
This week, we’ll have articles from as many angles as possible, with an eye to seeing why exactly this series creates strong emotions in so many.
