Anne’s World: A New Century of Anne of Green Gables, a new collection of essays edited by me and Irene Gammel and published by University of Toronto Press, is now available in paperback! The hardcover edition will be published later this summer.
The recent 100-year anniversary of the first publication of L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables has inspired renewed interest in one of Canada’s most beloved fictional icons. The international appeal of the red-haired orphan has not diminished over the past century, and the cultural meaning of her story continues to grow and change. The original essays in Anne’s World offer fresh and timely approaches to issues of culture, identity, health, and globalization as they apply to Montgomery’s famous character and to today’s readers.
