Reviews
Review Quotes
"This is an exciting edition of Canada's most enduring literary classic, Anne of Green Gables. Cogent and compelling, Devereux's introduction sets the stage for a fresh look at the novel with an impressive array of relevant texts by L.M. Montgomery and her contemporaries. Montgomery's 'The Way to Make a Book' is a true discovery." - Irene Gammel, University of Prince Edward Island "Devereux's editing is judicious, fully informed by current scholarship, and the supplementary materials-dealing with Montgomery's views of gender and the writing life, early versions of the novel's episodes, and inspirations for Anne-will be fascinating to students and general readers alike." - Lorraine York, McMaster University
