The Symbolism of Needlework and Textile Arts in the Anne series
Hancock, Pamela. “The Symbolism Of Needlework And Textile Arts In The Anne Series”. The Shining Scroll (2009): 24-29. Print.
Anne of Green Gables and knitting became life-long interests when I was introduced to them by my mother around the time I was seven years old. I never thought of Anne as being too distant from me, largely because all the women in the Anne books were constantly occupied with the crafts and handiwork I saw my relatives and other women in the community doing. When re-reading the books as an adult, I came to realize that L. M. Montgomery used needlework not only to enrich our understanding of Anne’s world, but also to give us clues to the characters and society that made up Anne’s environment., Source type: Print(0)
