title No Scope for Imagination: Another Side of Anne of Green Gables
creator Weale, David
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description Much of the world's outstanding literature has been inspired, and impregnated, by powerful forces at work within a particular culture, expressed through the individual genius of one of its members. That is certainly the case with the children's classic, Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery. Montgomery was the product of a rural order which persisted across Prince Edward Island from the late 1800s until its rapid dissolution in the middle decades of the 20th century. It was a traditional folk society, with an inherited integrity and character, and it provided in its own way for the needs of its inhabitants. There was much about it to extol, and much to criticize. Montgomery did both in her writing.
