A Post-Feminist Romance: Love, Gender and Intertextuality in Stephenie Meyer's Saga

Publication year

I've only seen excerpts of this, including the following:

In this essay, I wish to discuss the manner in which Stephanie Meyer's Twilight saga draws from the historical mode of romance, including its more recent variations in the form of popular Harlequin and Mills and Boon romance novels. I am referring to romance as a mode rather than as a genre [...]. [...] In particular, I wish to analyze the books in relation to the narratives that they explicitly draw from, such as Wuthering Heights, and others which are not explicitly stated, such as Jane Eyre and romantic novels of the Mills and Boon variety.
