Ode to Love
While many of the songs in the above list have romantic overtones, the theme of the entire Twilight Saga is quite different. It’s an ode to love, acceptance, and the transformative power of art. The opening credits sequence of the series begins with a quote from the poet Alexander Pope: “Art is a form of artistry that creates beauty from ugliness and harmony from discord.”
The series, which is often considered to be one of the greatest romances of all time, begins with a vampire named Victoria (Bella) despises the feeling of love towards men and wants nothing to do with them. She rejects the advances of several suitors, including Edward, a bespoke tailor who works at Dior. Edward is a talented artist, and uses his tailoring skills to turn Victoria into a beautiful woman. As a result of this transformation, Edward falls in love with Victoria and she with him. In time, their dislike for each other turns to love, and they create a life together as a family.
Art has the power to evoke strong emotions in viewers. We’re drawn to it, and that’s what makes it such a useful tool in captivating an audience. It’s the perfect tool for romantic comedies and tearjerkers—the two genres that Twilight falls into—since it can make something ugly (the monsters, trolls, and ghouls that the characters encounter) seem humanized and approachable. In doing so, it makes us more willing to connect with the characters and care about what happens to them. It’s a bit of a double-edged sword, as while art can make something seem beautiful, it can just as easily make something seem brutal and horrifying. But that’s part of its allure.
