Morey, Anne. Genre, Reception, and Adaptation in the “Twilight” Series. Routledge, 2012
Much of the criticism on Stephenie Meyer’s immensely popular ‘Twilight’ novels has underrated or even disparaged the books while belittling the questionable taste of an audience that many believe is being inculcated with anti-feminist values. Avoiding a repetition of such reductive critiques of the series’s purported shortcomings with respect to literary merit and political correctness, this volume adopts a cultural studies framework to explore the range of scholarly concerns awakened by the ‘Twilight novels and their filmic adaptations.
