A thrilling, dreamful, heartening spell of inspired girlhood
am 28. Januar 2000
These books, the Emily Books (Emily of New Moon, Emily Climbs and Emily's Quest) are some of the most wonderful, joyful creations I have ever read. I am connected to Emily, both as a young girl, aspiring writer, and soulful person, and the stories of her life have captured and entranced me to an extent unimagineable. I read these books hungrily, sometimes ten chapters a night, and rarely was I dissapointed; only then because I felt that I would have done something different. But then, I am not Emily, nor am I the author--when it comes right down to it, Emily IS Maud, and vise versa, because all characters are truly a facet of the author's mind and personality. Like a sapphire in brilliant moonlight. Another thing: these books are life. They are realistic, captivating and they explore the life and heart of an INNOCENT young girl, without extreme vulgarities or trash; if you are looking for sex scenes, try Cathy Cash Spellman and Danielle Steele. Do not attempt, please, to call these books BORING and DULL. Why are they so, I ask? Why and how can a person find them so? I'd like to know, really I would, and mayhap it will enlighten me. Or you. In these fairy-spun tomes, Miss Montgomery has captured the flavor of a real, human girl, as unlike Anne Shirley as I can imagine; surely there are SOME similarities. But, then, would Anne ever think about Gilbert Blythe in her journal as Emily thought of the charming artistic Teddy Kent?--"Yet she was admitting to herself with a secret candour that would have horrified Aunt Elizabeth that she wanted torun her fingers through his sleek black hair--feel his arms about her--press her face against his dark tender one--feel his lips on her lips--" Obviously, Emily is more human and passionate and soulful than ever Anne Shirley was--although I do love the Green Gables series, and admire it greatly for it's wholesome content and humerous anecdotes. Miss Montgomery was wonderful, and the greatest gift imagineable for me would be--some day--to have one of my works compared to hers. Or put in the same category.
