Breaking Dawn Theme of Love

In Breaking Dawn, true love overcomes all obstacles. True love also leaves the characters no choice but to give theirs lives to save the people they love. Bella is willing to sacrifice her life out of love of her daughter, Renesmee. Jacob stands against his own werewolf pack to protect Bella and the Cullens. When Jacob imprints on Renesmee, he dedicates his life to her. After Bella transforms into a newborn vampire, her love for Edward remains stronger than her thirst for blood.

Questions About Love

  1. Jacob imprints on newborn Renesmee. Do you believe that a grown man falling in love with a baby is ethically questionable or not. Why do you think so?
  2. How does Bella and Edward's relationship change after her transformation?
  3. Do you believe that Jacob imprints on Renesmee because she's partly Bella and not for Renesmee's own sake?
