This is yet another question I found on Classic Remarks. This is a question that is rather interesting. It is related to Anne of Green Gables. I actually don’t even know if I read any of the books as a child. However, I did fall in love with the Netflix series, “Anne with an “E”, which is based on the novel, Anne of Green Gables. I actually really connected to Anne. Why do you think Anne of Green Gables still speaks to contemporary readers?
My Connection to Anne
I actually think readers can relate to the character of Anne. Like Anne, I love nature, have a wild imagination, and can get impulsive at times. Some of the best stories actually come from orphans- Anne is one herself, and her experiences at the orphanage inspires a lot of the stories she creates and tells to others. Anne isn’t the only character we love- Diana, Glibert, Matthew, and Marilla are some of the other characters we learn to love.
