THE DILEMMA OF BEING MAUD
McCabe, Kevin. “The Dilemma Of Being Maud”. The Shining Scroll (1998): 7-12. Print.
Readers of Montgomery's journals may well be surprised by a dramatic change of tone as the author reaches her mid twenties. The number of light playful episodes declines sharply, and there is a marked increase in complaint, criticism, regret, and disillusion. This rather sudden transition represents some genuine changes and decisions in Maud's life, but it is a little difficult to sum up briefly the causes behind this trend. They are complex and even contradictory. Some educated guesses may be ventured, but, with a person as complicated as Montgomery, it is likely that some factors may elude us., Source type: Print(0)
