Summary: ''Since its publication in 1908, Anne of Green Gables has been an enduring best seller and arguably Canada's most famous novel. This Norton Critical Edition is based on the first edition, published in 1908 by the L. C. Page Company of Boston, and features the eight original illustrations. In addition, the volume offers an unrivaled selection of biographical, contextual, and critical materials judiciously selected by leading Montgomery scholars Mary Henley Rubio and Elizabeth Watersto moren.'' ''''Backgrounds'' begins with eleven relevant excerpts from Montgomery's juvenilia and journals. It presents the novel's literary context through selections from Sir Walter Scott, Lord Byron, Caroline Oliphant, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Louisa May Alcott, among others. It explores the cultural context through writings by Carole Gerson, Kate Wood, and Mary Henley Rubio.'' ''''Criticism'' brings together early reviews and responses as well as modern critical interpretations. The eight early reviews (1908-42) are from Canadian, American, and British sources. The fifteen more-recent essays are by Northrop Frye, Elizabeth R. Epperly, Marah Gubar, Cecily Devereux, Gabriella Ahmansson, Frank Davey, T. D. MacLulich, Virginia Careless, Juliet McMaster, Rosemary Ross Johnston, Elizabeth Waterston, Catherine Sheldrick Ross, Calvin Trillin, Carol Shields, and Margaret Atwood. A Chronology and Selected Bibliography are also included.''--BOOK JACKET. less
