Versions of Reality Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #7

[Alice to Bella:] "I saw you jump." (17.17)

To Alice, Bella’s death was a reality. She saw and experienced her friend dying.

Quote #8

"Bella," Alice whispered. "Edward won’t call again. He believed her." (18.165)

Edward accepts Rosalie’s account as the truth. It seems that reality often depends on belief or trust.

Quote #9

[Bella to Edward:] "I’m dead, right?" I moaned. (23.16)

Much like Edward, Bella thinks she’s died and gone to heaven after the drowning scare. In contrast to Edward though, she doesn’t recite Shakespeare, but reacts very matter-of-factly. Does that fit her personality?
