The Supernatural Quotes in New Moon
How we cite our quotes: (chapter.paragraph)
Jacob, my friend? Jacob, the only human I’d ever been able to relate to… And he wasn’t even human… What did this say about me?… It said that there was something deeply wrong with me. (12.180-184)
Bella wonders if she relates better to supernatural creatures than humans. Why might that be?
[Jacob to Bella:] "You… don’t mind that I morph into a giant dog." (13.85)
By putting it that way, Jacob humanizes, or normalizes, his supernatural existence for Bella.
