Isle Esme And "The Eyes Of Love"
Introduction: Studying each "Twilight Saga" chapter carries it's own delights. It's like opening a Fabrege' Egg.* When an interviewer asked Stephanie Meyers if there was a "consistent theme that runs through the "Twilight Saga?" She replied "Yes, it is love. I have always been fascinated by love, and how love impacts on the people it touches. The Saga is a story about how the love of one girl (Bella Swan) impacts impacts on the lives of those she comes in contact with. Stephanie continued, "Twilight" is a look at life through the "Eyes Of Love." (PP) Doc B "To me "The Twilight Saga" is a "Pilgrims Progress"* for the twenty first century."
