Anne of Green Gables is a novel written in 1908 by Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery. This novel created a particular heroine named Anne Shirley, being considered as “the dearest and most lovable child in fiction since the immortal Alice

(Mark twain)”, is the character from the book Anne of Green Gables, thought as a

red-headed strange orphan girl but actually full of imagination and creation. She was mistakenly sent to the middle-aged siblings named Matthew Cuthbert and Marilla Cuthbert. Later then Anne lived with them in Green Gables of Avonlea on Prince Edward Island. Written for all ages, it has been considered a classic children#39;s novel since the mid-twentieth century. Recognized as a world literary classic, ‘Anne of Green Gables’ has been put on stage, adapted into a musical, filmed into a silent, sound film; In 1985, a youth guide Kevin Sullivan adapted ‘Anne of Green Gables’ into a TV series in Canada Broadcast by the big broadcaster TV station, the number of viewers reached 5.5 million, even played on US, UK, Germany, Japan. Prince Edward Island where the story takes place in Canada has become a famous tourist attraction decades later. A novel can have such a wide and profound influence which seems a rare phenomenon in the history of literature. I believe that the writer herself did not expect it. The book was an immediate success.

The author of this novel, Lucy Maud Montgomery, was a Canadian born in Prince Edward Island of New London on November 30, 1874. Little Lucy was raised by her grandparents and lived in an old farmhouse surrounded by apple orchards. In addition of divergent farm works, Lucy get the most strict and rigid education from her grandparents. Fortunately, Prince Edward Island is one of the most beautiful

provinces in Canada where nurtured Lucy#39;s lifelong affection to nature, which has been given strongly poetic expression in her publications. Based on the popularity of Anne of Green Gables in 1908, she wrote a series of sequels to continue the story of her heroine Anne Shirley. Most of the novels were set in Prince Edward Island, and locations within Canada#39;s smallest province became a literary landmark and popular tourist site – namely Green Gables farm, the genesis of Prince Edward Island National Park. She was made an officer of the Order of the British Empire in 1935.
