Fifty Shades of Twilight: Part 2.0 Classic/ Modern Literature & Others Influences


Hello, and welcome to Part 2.0 of my Fifty Shades of Twilight blogs about the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy .
In the table below I have gathered together stories, novels, TV shows & films all which have influenced Fifty Shades of Grey. I know that there are more themes for each story than I have included. What has surprised me the most about this table was the shared themes between each story & how many themes Fifty Shades shares with them, especially classic literature.  I will do an other post going to more detail about this next time, enjoy the table.
