Blair K & Thompson WV (2016) The Mood of the Golden Age: Paganism, Ecotheology and the Wild Woods in L.M. Montgomery’s Anne and Emily Series. Literature and Theology, 30 (2), pp. 131-147. https://doi.org/10.1093/litthe/frw017
This article discusses the intersection of pagan and Christian allusions in Montgomery’s depiction of her heroines’ love of nature, contextualising these within the renewed interest in paganism in early twentieth-century literature and concentrating particularly on discussions of trees and woods in the Anne and Emily series. It suggests that the attitudes towards nature and God displayed in these works anticipate themes in current ecotheological discourse.
