Back when I read the Twilight books, I thought it was interesting that Stephanie Meyer compared Edward’s love for Bella as akin to Heathcliff’s love for Cathy in Wuthering Heights. Heathcliff’s is a soul-consuming, messed up, obsessive kind of love, which definitely does seem like a vampiric thing to do. And that’s why I thought this passage from Jane Eyre was appropriate.
