Classical Twilight?

From an announcement of an upcoming lecture in Philly somewhere:

Holly Blackford, an associate professor of English literature at Rutgers-Camden, is the evening’s guest speaker. Her lecture, “Persephone in the Twilight Zone of Divorce: Lost Child, Underworld Queen in Stephenie Meyer’s Adaptation of Emily Bronte,” will compare “Twilight” and its main character, Bella, to “Wuthering Heights” and Greek mythology’s teen queen of dark romance, Persephone.

hmmm … not sure going out and picking flowers only to be abducted/raped by a scary divinity from the underworld is ‘romantic’ …

via PhillyBurbs.com:  ‘Twilight’ compares to classic literature, mythology.
