Dearly Beloved...and Departed: Reevaluating the Narrative of L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables Series
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis reevaluates the narrative of L.M. Montgomery's popular Anne of Green Gables series. Using the site of weddings and funerals in the text as a point of focus, this thesis examines the construction of the narrative of the eight novels which comprise the series. The focus is on narrative concepts such as différance, Derrida's arrêt de mort, and narrative time. This thesis develops an argument of narrative construction based on the concept of ending as the action which upholds narrative, of a narrative which both creates and is created by the act of ending.
