L.M. Montgomery’s Ideas

L.M. Montgomery’s Ideas is a set of six letters published in the “Public Forum” column of the Charlottetown Guardian in late summer 1930. The first letter, signed Mrs. Edith Frank Fisher, criticizes Montgomery’s depiction of rural life in her novel Magic for Marigold, which had been published in 1929; responses signed “Islander,” “An Outsider,” “An Insider,” and “(Mrs.) A.M.C.” appeared before Montgomery herself decided to set the record straight. All six letters appear in full in The L.M. Montgomery Reader, Volume 1: A Life in Print (2013).
