It feels a little strange to reference both academia and Twilight in one breath, but that's what this collection is: a look at Twilight from a grown-up and thoughtful eye. The essays range from talk on where Meyer drew her inspiration, to evidence of her religion in her writings, and to her appropriation of Quileute legend (real and imagined). While none of the essays were particularly critical- in fact, most were very positive- it gives a more balanced view of the series than one is likely to find elsewhere.

I received this book for free through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program.
