About this product
- DescriptionL.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables is one of the best-kwn and most enduringly popular vels of the twentieth century. First published in 1908, it has never been out of print, and it continues, nearly a century after its first appearance, to appeal to new readers in many locations around the world. Anne of Green Gables is the story of how a little girl, adopted from an orphan asylum by a brother and sister seeking a boy to help them on their Prince Edward Island farm, grows to responsible young adulthood and, as she grows, brings light and life to her adoptive home. Although it is, as Montgomery described it in her journal, a simple little tale, it has netheless generated t only an international readership but, more recently, an increasing critical interest that focuses on the text's engagement with social and political issues, its relation to Montgomery's life and her other writing, and its circulation as a popular cultural commodity in Canada and elsewhere. This Broadview Edition is based on the first edition of Anne of Green Gable s. It includes a critical introduction and a fascinating selection of contemporary documents, including contemporary reviews of the vel, other writings by L.M. Montgomery (stories, writings on gender and on writing), and excerpts from the Pansy books by Isabella Macdonald Alden.
