Review and Discussion

From the Paper:

"The research showed that Lucy Maud Montgomery was born November 30, 1874 and died in 1942. She was a Canadian author most popularly known for her Anne of Green Gables series, but the research also showed that she was a prolific contributor to other publications such as "The Delineator" as well. While she is less well known for these works, her biographers were consistent in emphasizing her contributions to and influences on modern Canadian literature, and her childhood home has become an international tourist destination due in large part to the descriptions she communicates in her Anne of Green Gables series. Over the years, tens of millions of young readers have enjoyed "Maud's" works over the years, and in the final analysis, it is reasonable to suggest that tens of millions more will be reading her Anne of Green Gables series in the years to come."
