*Storm and Dissonance, is a collection of inter-related essays that explore how and why Montgomery's 'gentle landscapes and optimistic stories contain undercurrents of anger, malice, relentless gossip, obsession, and violence' (pp. 4-5). Brilliantly edited and introduced by Island-born Anthropologist Jean Mitchell, the essays areclustered into five lively and related conversations, each enriching the others and also our general understanding of Montgomery's complex ways ofcoding experiences and perceptions. This is a must-read for anyone interested in Montgomery's artistry and in her creation of cultural images that resonate more than one hundred years later. Dr. Elizabeth Rollins Epperly

Book Description Cambridge Scholars Publishing, United Kingdom, 2008. Hardback. Condition: New. Unabridged edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. This collection of essays explores the darker side of L.M. Montgomery s fiction and life writing. An international best-selling novelist, Montgomery s many novels, particularly Anne of Green Gables, have enchanted readers for over a century. However, Montgomery s own disenchantment made evident with the posthumous publication of her private journals, ruptured the easy conflation of Montgomery as author and person. The tension between public enchantment and private discontent informs Montgomery s work and life. By exploring the more transgressive aspects of Montgomery s writing, these essays provide new insights into the complexity of her work and life. Montgomery s gentle landscapes and optimistic stories, as the authors suggest, often contain undercurrents of anger, malice, obsession, loss and violence. As one contributor, Margaret Doody, argues destructiveness plays around the edges of all of her fiction. Essays explore the anguish of mother loss, her ambivalent depictions of the maternal, the experiences War and the Great Depression as well as a range of issues related to gender, class, nature and social and cultural change. Attention to the dissonance and conflict as these essays demonstrates, provides compelling and new space for theoretical readings of Montgomery s work. Seller Inventory # AAZ9781847184337
