Montgomery’s personal life and writing. As an eleven-year-old, she experienced the suspense of waiting months for news about her fa- ther, who fought during the North-West Resistance of 1885. During the First World War, she actively led women’s war efforts in her community, while anguished at the horrors taking place overseas. Through her novels and short stories, Montgomery engages directly with the global conflicts of her time, from the North-West Resistance to the Second World War. Given the influence of her wartime writing on Canada’s cultural memory, L.M. Montgomery and War restores Montgomery to her rightful place as a major war writer. Reassessing Montgomery’s place in the canon of war literature, contributors to this volume explore three central themes in their essays: her writing in the context of contemporaneous Canadian novelists, artists, and poets; questions about her conceptions of gender identity, war work, and nationalism across enemy lines; and the themes of hurt and healing in her works from the 1920s and ’30s. Drawing on new perspectives from war studies, literary studies, historical studies, gender studies, and visual art, L.M. Montgomery and War ex- plores new ways to consider the iconic Canadian writer and her work.
