All right, who knows what's going on at this wiki right now? *raises hand, looks around anxiously* In case you somehow didn't get the memo once you arrived, we're currently ten days into our month-long 100 Years of Anne of the Island project! As it is Day #10, I've taken the liberty of bringing you ten interesting facts about Anne of the Island that you may or may not know (depending on how well you've perused this wiki).
(Disclaimer: These facts aren't mindblowing or shocking, and some are nearly common knowledge, but I still feel confident in putting 'interesting' in the title. This is an Anne website, after all.)
#1: It is L. M. Montgomery's seventh book.
Preceded by Anne of Green Gables (1908), Anne of Avonlea (1909), Kilmeny of the Orchard (1910), …Read more >
So, I've recently discovered the Myers-Briggs personality test. I was a bit sceptical at first (can we really fit people into only sixteen different types?). However, it is pretty interesting. (You can read about it and take the test here, if you've never heard about it. I'm an INTP, by the way.)
I saw that some people on the internet had already categorised characters from things like Harry Potter and Death Note, so I thought I'd try a hand at it myself, only with characters from the Anne of Green Gables books. Here's what I ended up with:
- ISTJ – The Examiner (Marilla Cuthbert)
- ISFJ – The Defender (Stella Maynard)
- INFJ – The Counsellor (Jane Andrews)
- INTJ – The Strategist (Katherine Brooke, Nan Blythe)
- ISTP – The Craftsman (Carl Meredith)
- ISFP – The A…
We always knew Nan and Di, Anne and Gilbert's twin daughters, are different. But how different? And in which ways are they still similar? In this article, I take a closer look at the Ingleside twins, the third named set of twins (and the first ones of the same gender) to be introduced in the Anne of Green Gables series. Nan is often described as being like her mother, while Di is her father's favourite. But is this true of the way they are characterised?
Each twin has several stories in Anne of Ingleside devoted to her. Nan's (Chapters 25-26, Chapters 30-31 and Chapters 35-36) are tales of making bargains with God, being fooled into thinking she was swapped at birth and her fairytale idea of the GLOOMY HOUSE. Di's (Chapters 28-29 and Chapters …Read more >
So as promised in my previous post, I am starting a five-part series on the main characters living in Avonlea (in my opinion) – Anne Shirley, Marilla Cuthbert, Matthew Cuthbert, Diana Barry, and Gilbert Blythe.
I find it only appropriate to start this series off with the most obvious lead character, Anne Shirley. The novel is named “Anne of Green Gables”, after all!
So,Anne Shirley, who is she you might ask?That question isn’t asked very often where I live - in Canada. She’s practically the mascot of Prince Edward Island, if not the country. She’s the stereotypical, red-haired (with a temper to match) and freckled little girl, who wasn’t the boy Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert sent for. But there really is much, MUCH more to her than that!
