Character and characterization
1. Mayor Character
Ø Bella Swan
Isabella Marie Swan is an average, clumsy, accident-prone girl who moves from Phoenix, Arizona to Forks, Washington to live with her father, Charlie. Though many boys are attracted to her, she falls in love with Edward Cullen, a mysterious boy she discovers to be a vampire.
Ø Edward Cullen
Edward Cullen was born on June 20, 1901 in Chicago, Illinois and is frozen in his 17-year-old body. While dying of the Spanish influenza, he was changed into a vampire by Dr. Carlisle Cullen after Edward's mother, Elizabeth, begged him to save Edward as her dying wish. Edward has the special ability to read minds, with the exception of Bella Swan's. He falls in love with Bella soon after she arrives in Forks.
The major antagonist, James is depicted as a merciless "tracker" vampire who hunts human beings or, in some cases, animals, for sport. Fellow coven member Laurent says of James that he is unusually gifted at what he does and always gets what he wants, though it is later revealed that a then-human Alice Cullen escaped his clutches some time ago by being turned into a vampire before James could attack. Unlike the Cullen family, he drinks human blood as his food source. Towards the end of Twilight, James is dismembered and set on fire (thus permanently destroyed) by Cullen brothers Emmett and Jasper after luring Bella to an empty ballet studio and nearly killing her.

Jacob Black is Bella's best friend. He is a Quileute Native American and a werewolf, later revealed to be a shape-shifter as he doesn't transform on the full moon.

In an attempt to learn more about Cullen, Bella flirts with Jacob, and he tells her tribe legends about them being "the cold ones", or vampires

Carlisle Cullen is Esme's husband and Edward, Rosalie, Emmett, Alice, and Jasper's adoptive father. His first appearance was in Twilight and his physical age is 23. Carlisle is described to look like a model; he has blond hair,and is slender but muscular. Carlisle theorizes that when a human is turned into a vampire, they will have an enhanced ability from their previous life. He believes he brought compassion from his human life. Carlisle has had centuries to perfect his medicinal talents, therefore making him an excellent doctor.
Ø Esme Cullen
Esme Cullen is the wife of Carlisle. She enjoys restoring old houses and her physical age is 26. She has no special power, but has a strong ability to love passionately. Esme is described as caramel-colored hair; she also has a heart-shaped face with dimples, and her figure is slender, but rounded and soft. Esme was born in the later 1800s, living in Columbus, Ohio, where she was treated at the age of 16 by Carlisle after breaking her leg when climbing a tree. She married Charles Evenson, but was abused by him.
Ø Rosalie Hale
Rosalie Lillian Hale is the adopted daughter of Esme and Carlisle, adoptive sister of Edward, Alice, and Jasper, and wife of Emmett. Her physical age is 18, and she was born in 1915 in Rochester, New York as the daughter of a banker. Rosalie is described as being astoundingly beautiful, even for a vampire; she is tall, statuesque, and has long, wavy blonde hair. As a human, Rosalie was described as a woman who had beauty, elegance, class, and eyes resembling violets.
Ø Emmett Cullen
Emmett Cullen is Rosalie's husband, Carlisle and Esme's adopted son, and Edward, Alice, and Jasper's adoptive brother. Emmett is described as being tall, burly, extremely muscular, and, to most humans, the most intimidating of his adoptive siblings. He has slightly curly dark hair and dimpled cheeks.

The injuries from the attack were severe and he was found by Rosalie, who had been hunting in the area at the time.

Her special ability is to see the future, an enhanced version of her ability to have premonitions as a human. However, her ability is limited; she is only able to see the outcome of a decision once it is made. Due to this, decisions made in the spur of the moment can not be foreseen.

A red-haired, cat-like vampire, Victoria is originally a member of James' coven. She plays a small role in the first book assisting James, her lover and coven leader, in hunting Bella Swan.
A dark-haired, olive-toned vampire, Laurent is a member of James' coven in Twilight. When James and Victoria choose to track and murder Bella, Laurent leaves both of them and travels to Denali, Alaska in hopes of finding solace among a coven of "vegetarian" vampires. However, he does not adopt their strict diet of drinking animal blood, and "cheats" by occasionally feeding on humans.
Most of the story takes place in Forks, Washington, and its surrounding areas. According to Bella, Forks claims the highest rainfall per year in the United States.
Ø The Forest
The forest is an interesting setting for a number of scenes. Commonly in literature, the forest represents a wilderness where evil and/or mystery may reside. If you've read Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter or Arthur Miller's The Crucible, you'll know what we're talking about. This may be the case in Twilight to some extent.
Ø Bella and Edward's Meadow
A secluded meadow in the middle of the forest hosts Bella's first sight of Edward's skin when exposed to the sun. Bella describes the meadow almost like we'd imagine the Garden of Eden:
The meadow was small, perfectly round, and filled with wildflowers – violet, yellow and soft white. Somewhere nearby, I could hear the bubbling music of a stream. The sun was directly overhead, filling the circle with a haze of buttery sunshine.
In this private setting, Edward can be himself in front of Bella for the first time. He shows her his super-speed and strength in addition to his sparkling skin. The meadow is also where Edward and Bella take their love affair to the next emotional level.
Ø La Push
Lastly, La Push serves as the place of Bella's epiphany over Edward's "kind." Jacob Black, the son of one of Charlie's friends, fills in Bella on the local lore and informs Bella that the Cullens aren't allowed on La Push reservation. This new setting clues us into the competition between Jacob and Edward – each guy has his own territory on which neither can trespass, yet Bella is free to move between them.
Isabella "Bella" Swan moves from sunny Phoenix, Arizona to rainy Forks, Washington to live with her father, Charlie, while her mother, travels with her new husband. Bella attracts much attention at her new school and is quickly befriended by several students. Much to her dismay, several boys compete for shy Bella's attention.
When Bella is seated next to Edward Cullen in class on her first day of school, Edward seems utterly repulsed by her. He disappears for a few days, but warms up to Bella upon his return; their newfound relationship reaches a climax when Bella is nearly run over by a fellow classmate's van in the school parking lot. Edward saves her life when he instantaneously appears next to her and stops the van with his bare hands.
Bella becomes determined to find out how Edward saved her life, and constantly pesters him with questions. After a family friend, Jacob Black, tells her the local tribal legends, Bella concludes that Edward and his family are vampires who drink animal blood rather than human.
Approach of twilight
1. Feminism approach
In Twilight is telling about there is a girl (Bella) who loves someone that is Edward a vampire. She doesn’t feel afraid although her pair is a vampire and will be confronting the big dangerous. She is a human live around vampires (Cullens), there are some trouble to live around them, one of them is there is another vampires that has different species knowing existence Bella in Cullen’s family and will making her become vampire like them. But Cullen’s family protected her especially Edward.
In the contention between Edward and James, Bella held the beg to saving Edward that lost in that contention. James bites Bella’s hand and it is make her almost died but before she died Edward can bear down James and saving Bella.
Because Bella is very love Edward she asking Edward to sipping her blood in order to can be vampire and can be live together with Edward.
2. Sociolinguist Approach
Approach used in this story is sociological, in which the story is told that the vampires in the Cullen’s family can coexist with Bella and the human family is not aware that they live too d about the vampires. They can live together because the vampires were trying their best to live just like humans, they do not suck human blood, but the blood of animals. Edward Cullen is one of the vampires in love with Bella swan man, was d out of his common sense, but that's what happened, in a pack of vampires when making a scene, and kill humans, d where the problem occurred, and of course if the problem is to be continued of course would greatly endanger the Cullen’s family life.
