Samenvatting

Elizabeth Waterston is a 2011 Fellow of The Royal Society of Canada.This volume of Lucy Maud Montgomery's journals records a time of great change and upheaval both in Montgomery's life and in society. When she wrote the first entry in this volume she had recently become a world-famous author, having published Anne of Green Gables in 1908. Here we become privy to her response to the death of her grandmother, her marriage and honeymoon trip to Scotland and England, and her departure from Prince Edward Island to the new restrictions of her life as the wife of a Presbyterian minister in an Ontario village. Montgomery reveals the intensities of friendships, the minutiae of homemaking, and the joys of motherhood along with the traumas of a disturbed marriage. By turns tart and sentimental, sharp-sighted and anxiety-ridden, L.M. Montgomery provides a compelling record of her remarkable life against a background -- both social and literary -- of a tumultuous period in Canadian history.

Recensie(s)

...a fascinating compendium for those readers interested in social and cultural history, women's studies and Canadian writing -- as well as, of course, the countless 'Anne' aficionados around the globe. Kingston Whig Standard The journals, with their vivid account of both daily routines and more significant life events, are written with all the passion, wit and insight into human nature that have made Montgomery's 'books for young people' immortal to readers of all ages. Toronto Sun These journals are an important contribution, not just to literary and social history, but to the body of Canadian literature. Books in Canada ...one can but commend the editors and their publisher for making such a splendid volume available to us... Atlantic Provinces Book Review
