The Magnets

Symbolism, Imagery, Allegory

In Chapter 4, when Jacob and Edward's rivalry starts to heat up, Bella forces two opposing magnets on her fridge to stay close to each other. It takes effort, but she manages. The magnets are obviously meant to represent Edward and Jacob. It's interesting to think that Bella's action goes against the natural physics of the two magnets, which begs the question: is her choice to force them together a good idea?
