L.M. Montgomery Articles on A Pilgrim In Narnia

Including posts for the 2020 Vision Forum, the launch of the Maudcast, and my 2018 spring L.M. Montgomery series, I have published more than two dozen notes and articles on Montgomery and her work! And I still have a few in mind that I haven’t gotten to yet–including some notes about growing up in “the Land of Anne,” so to speak. As we close off the 2020 conference week, I thought I would gather together the Montgomery posts so far.

Thoughts from Reading Montgomery

At its core, A Pilgrim in Narnia is a readers’ blog, capturing the experience of reading great books. I love books, and when I write I want to see something of the heart, the inside of a text or a text-world. Most of my posts about Montgomery, then, are about things that come of reading her works–sometimes while reading others, sometimes in thinking about her life story, and sometimes close reading of her novels or poetry.

Book Reviews

I don’t do a tonne of book reviews, often preferring to write a quick note or a larger reflection. Of my book reviews, they are often background bits like my 10 Minute Book Talk about Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women or notes about my reading experience, like “Why I Love Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice … Even Though I’m a Guy.” Still, I have done some Montgomery related book reviews:

L.M. Montgomery Resources

This is still a new area for me, but I have three main links–two for resources I developed and one that I posted about:

You can also read about the issues that Cavendish had in 2019 storms when it comes to Montgomery’s homestead. See here, and especially here where I talk about Montgomery’s love of trees in more detail.

Notes About Research and Conferences

About Brenton Dickieson

“A Pilgrim in Narnia” is a blog project in reading and talking about the work of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the worlds they touched. As a "Faith, Fantasy, and Fiction" blog, we cover topics like children’s literature, apologetics and philosophy, myths and mythology, fantasy, theology, cultural critique, art and writing. This blog includes my thoughts as I read through Lewis and Tolkien and reflect on my own life and culture. In this sense, I am a Pilgrim in Narnia--or Middle Earth, or Fairyland. I am often peeking inside of wardrobes, looking for magic bricks in urban alleys, or rooting through yard sale boxes for old rings. If something here captures your imagination, leave a comment, “like” a post, share with your friends, or sign up to receive Narnian Pilgrim posts in your email box. Brenton Dickieson is a father, husband, friend, university lecturer, and freelance writer from Prince Edward Island, Canada. You can follow him on Twitter, @BrentonDana.

    Thanks – very timely! I’m just reading the Emily trilogy – and was going to have to look them up, which would have been a big effort.
