Beginning with Anne

My first post to Kate's Blogging Anne of Green Gables project went up this morning. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Anne's publication, I look forward to revisiting this old favorite and exploring the reasons why it has meant so much to me as a reader. Montgomery's countless literary allusions influenced my imagination when I was a child, introducing me to the Greats. She understood what it meant to "stand on the shoulders of giants" and I think she would be gratified to know of the literary worlds she has opened up to others as well.
