It’s been a while since we’ve posted a segment on just news on The Twilight Saga and its series.
MTV had an interesting article for their Twilight Tuesdays about the literary appeal of female YA heroines such as Bella and Katniss. Although some might disagree that Bella is labelled as a heroine but it does certainly make people especially young readers pick up a book and read.
“Both characters are appealing on a very archetypal level. One is very much a damsel in distress, this sort of empty, insecure vessel, which I think is very identifiable for young women,” she explained. “The other is sort of this superhero, strong, independent woman who doesn’t need anybody, which I think is also something that is very inspirational for women. In each one of us we have both of those entities, and as a result, people are drawn to these characters.”
