|Abstract||"Despite the enormous popularity of her books, particularly Anne of Green Gables, L. M. Montgomery's role in the development of Canada's national culture is not often discussed by literary historians." "That scholars have not mined the 'Canadianness' of Montgomery's writing is redressed by this collection. It is the first systematic effort to investigate and explore Montgomery's active engagement with Canadian nationalism and identity, including regionalism, canon formation, and Canadian-American cultural relations. It examines her work in relation to the many dramatic changes of her day, such as the women's movement and the advent of new technologies; and it looks at the national and international consumption of Anne of Green Gables, in the form of both 'high' culture and cultural tourism."--BOOK JACKET.|
