Literary Relations: Anne Shirley and Her American Cousins.
Dawson, Janis
Children's Literature in Education, v33 n1 p29-51 Mar 2002
Examines similarities between L.M. Montgomery's "Anne of Green Gables" and Kate Douglas Wiggin's "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm." Raises questions about the Canadianness of Montgomery's novel and considers the author's literary indebtedness to American authors and contemporary children's literature. Argues that as a literary work, "Anne of Green Gables" has real strengths that make it more than a simple formula story. (SR)
