A new annotated edition recounting the experiences of Anne's daughter Rilla Blythe during the First World War ... "There is absolutely no one around here who seems to realize the war. I believe it is well they do not. If all felt as I do over it the work of the country would certainly suffer." In her journal entry for January 1, 1915, L.M. Montgomery lamented the absence of close companions with whom to discuss the war in her new life as a minister's wife in the rural community of Leaskdale, Ontario. Montgomery would work hard throughout the war years, contributing to the war effort as well as helping her husband in his role as minister. But there were few people with whom she could discuss the terrible events of the time. Instead, she carefully and quietly recorded war news in her journals. Two years after the war ended, she used this material to write "Rilla of Ingleside," a novel about endurance and sacrifice on the Canadian home front. Here, characters follow the international conflict closely and share the experience of fear, dread, and loss. Rilla matures during the war years, learning to endure hard work and loneliness, and the death of her beloved brother Walter (Walter is widely accepted to be a fictional version of John McCrae, the Canadian soldier who composed "In Flanders Fields"). New notes based on the latest research about Canada in World War I show that Montgomery's analysis of war was surprisingly accurate. Written as a companion to the new previously unpublished full edition of Montgomery's wartime journals, this new edition will add to our knowledge of Montgomery as well as Canada's role in the war. Special features include the photographs which may have served as the inspiration both for Rilla and her fiance.

Rilla of Ingleside

Anne's children were almost grown up, except for pretty, high-spirited Rilla. No one could resist her bright hazel eyes and dazzling smile. Rilla, almost fifteen, can't think any further ahead than going to her very first dance at the Four Winds lighthouse and getting her first kiss from handsome Kenneth Ford. But undreamed-of challenges await the irrepressible Rilla when the world of Ingleside becomes endangered by a far-off war. Her brothers go off to fight, and Rilla brings home an orphaned newborn in a soup tureen. She is swept into a drama that tests her courage and leaves her changed forever. It was a warm, golden-cloudy, lovable afternoon. In the big living-room at Ingleside Susan Baker sat down with a certain grim satisfaction hovering about her like an aura; it was four o'clock and Susan, who had been working incessantly since six that morning, felt that she had fairly earned an hour of repose and gossip. Susan just then was perfectly happy; everything had gone almost uncannily well in the kitchen that day. Dr. Jekyll had not been Mr. Hyde and so had not grated on her nerves; from where she sat she could see the pride of her heart-the bed of peonies of her own planting and culture, blooming as no other peony plot in Glen St. Mary ever did or could bloom, with peonies crimson, peonies silvery pink, peonies white as drifts of winter snow.

"Rilla of Ingleside" is a novel in the Anne of Green Gables series, describing the coming-of-age of Anne's youngest daughter, Marilla or Rilla. Set during the First World War in Canada, the narrative traces Rilla's development from a self-obsessed fifteen-year-old girl to a mature and brave nineteen-year-old.At the beginning of the book, the family discovers that the Archduke of Austria has been assassinated, setting off the events that will eventually lead to war. Rilla, however, is more preoccupied with her first real dance, and her future with her crush, Ken. At the dance, though, the group discovers that war has been declared, and many of the young men talk about joining up. As Rilla's oldest brother Jem and his friend Jerry leave for war, others struggle with whether or not to join up such as Ken, who has an old sports injury, and Walter, RIlla's favorite brother. In the end, both of these boys also enlist.On the home front, Rilla joins her mother in contributing to the war effort by starting a chapter of the Junior Red Cross. Shortly into her work, she discovers an abandoned baby, whose mother has died and whose father is off at the front. Initially disliking babies, Rilla "adopts" the young boy, naming him Jims, and spends her time trying to properly raise him. She simultaneously keeps working for the war cause, organizing recitations and concerts, and selling war bonds. Day to day life goes on: the antics of the family's housekeeper, Susan, are particularly noted, as she becomes a fierce patriot and is proposed to by a noted pacifist, who she rudely refuses. At the same time, the family pets play a large role in the book, as a two-sided cat has bad and good moods, and Jem's dog waits patiently at the train station for the full four years.When Walter dies abroad, the family is heartbroken and even more scared when their youngest son, Shirley, also joins. Rilla was particularly close to Walter and takes the news very hard. In the meantime, she receives letters from Ken, who stopped by her home on his way to war and kissed her, giving her the idea that they are more or less engaged. As the war goes on, though, his letters become less and less romantic.In the end, Jem is wounded and lost in battle, but eventually makes his way home. Ken comes home as well. Jims' father returns, with a new and capable English wife, and Jims has been left an inheritance by a neighbor, ensuring his future.

Differentiated book- It has a historical context with research of the time-Rilla, that of Ingleside published in 1921 is the eighth book in the Anne of Green Gables series, written by Canadian Lucy Maud Montgomery, although it was the sixth that the author wrote. In this novel, the focus is on a central character, Rilla Blythe, the youngest daughter of Ana and Gilbert. It is written in a more serious tone than its predecessors, since the story takes place during the years of the First World War, in which both Ana's children and those of her neighbors and friends, will have to go to fight at the front. Interestingly, Ingleside's Rilla is the only Canadian novel written from a woman's perspective of World War I by a writer at the time. Almost a decade has passed since the end of the previous book, and Ana's children have grown up, all except Rilla.Who at fifteen is a young coquette, with a charming smile and irrepressible enthusiasm, whose only hope is to go to her first dance at the Cuatro Vientos lighthouse. Ana and especially Gilbert, are concerned about the lack of expectations of their youngest daughter and the fact that their only concern is having fun. But the world of dreams and illusions of Rilla, begins to crack the same night of the dance.

"Rilla of Ingleside," L.M. Montgomery's 1921 novel about the Canadian home-front during World War I, is both moving and at times very funny. Montgomery's original handwritten manuscript of 518 pages, along with 71 pages of notes, survives today, housed at the University of Guelph. The manuscript has been painstakingly rendered in a readable format by Kate Waterston, and is available here, with an introduction by Montgomery expert Elizabeth Waterston. This edition enables us to witness the process of Montgomery's literary refinement as she edited her own work. The world has changed much since 1921: books are now mostly composed on computer, leaving little record of a writer's creative journey. But editing is a key part of the process, and here is one of the most detailed records of it available.

"An exciting new collection, The L.M. Montgomery Reader assembles significant rediscovered primary materials on one of Canada's most enduringly popular authors throughout her high-profile career as the author of the resoundingly successful Anne of Green Gables (1908) and after her death. Each of its three volumes gathers pieces published all over the world to set the stage for a much-needed reassessment of Montgomery's literary reputation. Much of the material is freshly unearthed from archives and digital collections and has never before been collected in book form. The ninety selections appearing in this first volume focus on Montgomery's role as a public celebrity, giving a strong impression of her as a writer and cultural critic as she discusses a range of topics with wit, wisdom, and humour, including the natural landscape of Prince Edward Island, her wide readership, anxieties about modernity, and the continued relevance of "old ideals." These essays and interviews are joined by a number of additional pieces that discuss her work's literary and cultural value in relation to an emerging canon of Canadian literature, with nearly one hundred selections in all. Each volume is accompanied by an extensive introduction and detailed commentary by leading Montgomery scholar Benjamin Lefebvre that trace the interplay between the author and the critic, as well as between the private and public Montgomery. This volume, and the Reader as a whole, adds tremendously to our understanding and appreciation of Montgomery?s legacy as a Canadian author and as a literary celebrity both during and beyond her lifetime." --Publisher's description.

When it originally appeared, Elizabeth Rollins Epperly's The Fragrance of Sweet-Grass was one of the first challenges to the idea that L.M. Montgomery's books were unworthy of serious study. Examining all of Montgomery's fiction, Epperly argues that Montgomery was much more than a master of the romance genre and that, through her use of literary allusions, repetitions, irony, and comic inversions, she deftly manipulated the normal conventions of romance novels. Focusing on Montgomery's memorable heroines, from Anne Shirley to Emily Byrd Starr, Valancy Stirling, and Pat Gardiner, Epperly demonstrates that Montgomery deserves a place in the literary canon not just as the creator of Anne of Green Gables but as an artist in her chosen profession. Since its publication more than twenty years ago, The Fragrance of Sweet-Grass has become a favourite of scholars, writers, and Montgomery fans. This new edition adds a preface in which Epperly discusses the book's contribution to the ongoing research on the life and writing of L.M. Montgomery, reflects on how Montgomery studies have flourished over the past two decades, and suggests new ways to approach and explore the Canadian writer's work.

Celebrated as a novelist and made famous by her novel Anne of Green Gables and its sequels, L.M. Montgomery (1874–1942) is far less known for also writing and publishing hundreds of poems over a period of half a century.Although this output included a chapbook and a full-length collection in which she presented herself primarily as a nature poet, most of her poems appeared in periodicals, including women’s magazines, farm papers, faith-based periodicals, daily and weekly newspapers, and magazines for children. As a shrewd businesswoman, she learned to find the balance between literary quality and commercial saleability and continued to publish poetry even though it paid less than short fiction. A World of Songs: Selected Poems, 1894–1921, the second volume in The L.M. Montgomery Library, gathers a selection of fifty poems originally published across a twenty-five-year period. Benjamin Lefebvre organizes this work within the context of Montgomery’s life and career, claiming her not only as a nature poet but also as the author of a wider range of "songs": of place, of memory, of lamentation, of war, of land and sea, of death, and of love. Many of these poems echo motifs that readers of Montgomery’s novels will recognize, and many more explore surprising perspectives through the use of male speakers. These poems offer today’s readers a new facet of the career of Canada’s most enduringly popular author.
