L.M. Montgomery and War

By McKenzie, Andrea & Ledwell, Jane

Montreal: McGill-Queen's University Press, 2017. War marked L.M. Montgomery's personal life and writing. As an eleven-year-old, she experienced the suspense of waiting months for news about her father, who fought during the North-West Resistance of 1885. During the First World War, she actively led women's war efforts in her community, while suffering anguish at the horrors taking place overseas. Through her novels, Montgomery engages directly with the global conflicts of her time, from the North-West Resistance to the Second World War. Given the influence of her wartime writing on Canada's cultural memories, L.M. Montgomery and War restores Montgomery to her rightful place as a major war writer. Reassessing Montgomery's position in the canon of war literature, contributors to this volume explore three central themes in their essays: her writing in the context of contemporaneous Canadian novelists, artists, and poets; questions about her conceptions of gender identity, war work, and nationalism across enemy lines; and the themes of hurt and healing in her interwar works. Drawing on new perspectives from war studies, literary studies, historical studies, gender studies, and visual art, L.M. Montgomery and War explores new ways to consider the iconic Canadian writer and her work. 258p. Bibliography. Publisher's publicity sheet laid in.. ARC/Advance Reading Copy. Softcover. Review Copy.

Maud's House of Dreams: The Life of Lucy Maud Montgomery

By Lunn, Janet

Toronto: Doubleday Canada, 2002. An engaging, highly moving young adult biography of Lucy Maud Montgomery, the beloved author of Anne of Green Gables, the Emily series, and many more treasured stories. This year, 2002, marks the 60th anniversary of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s death. Maud Montgomery was not yet two years old when she saw her mother for the last time. The journey from that day to the day Maud signed “Lucy Maud Montgomery” at the end of her first published story was long and often painful. In this compelling portrait of one of Canada’s best-loved writers for young people, another beloved, award-winning young-adult author, Janet Lunn, vividly brings to life the spirit that was Lucy Maud Montgomery. Lunn shows us Montgomery’s strict and lonely upbringing in rural Prince Edward Island, her eventual marriage to a man she did not love but who was deemed an ideal match, and her hard-won successes after many years of self-doubt and rejection. Throughout her life, Maud never stopped writing her journals and stories. L.M. Montgomery is undoubtedly Canada’s most famous author. Today, sixty years after her death her books have been translated into nearly every language, and dozens of plays, musical plays, films and made-for-television series of her works have been produced. In 1975, a Canadian Anne of Green Gables postage stamp was issued, and in Japan, where her stories are hugely popular, there are two Anne theme parks. At the end of 1999, when lists of the last century’s favourite writers were being compiled, the name Lucy Maud Montgomery led all others. . 1st Can Ed. Hardcover. New/New.
