Staying True to You: Finding the Feminist in Anne of Green Gables, Anne of Avonlea and Anne of the Island by L. M. Montgomery


  • Cecilia Bernroth Overton

Summary, in English

Anne Shirley, the girl and young woman made famous around the world by L. M. Montgomery in the early twentieth century, has been a companion and role model for countless young women. In this essay, my aim is to analyze the first three books about Anne, Anne of Green Gables (1908), Anne of Avonlea (1909) and Anne of the Island (1915), to see in what way it can be said that Montgomery wrote these novels as a feminist coming-of-age novel, a female Bildungsroman. I have identified four sections, in which I explore different aspects of feminism and the way they are represented in the text. I have found the novels to be feminist in many ways, the main focus being on the way in which Montgomery has used a subtle kind of feminism to show readers that rather than adapting to fit into the world, the world should change to fit you.
