Through Lovers Lane: L.M. Montgomerys Photography and Visual Imagination by Elizabeth Rollins Epperly

It might surprise some to know that internationally beloved Canadian writer L.M. Montgomery (1874-1942), author of the Anne of Green Gables series, among other novels, and hundreds of short stories and poems, also fuelled a passion for photography. For forty years, Montgomery photographed her favourite places and people, using many of these photographs to illustrate the hand-written journals she left as a record of her life. Artistically inclined, and possessing a strong visual memory, Montgomery created scenes and settings in her fiction that are closely linked to the carefully composed shapes in her photographs.

Elizabeth Rollins Epperlys Through Lovers Lane is the first book to examine Montgomerys photography in any depth; it is also the first study to connect Montgomerys photography with her fiction and other writing. Drawing on the work of Montgomery scholars, as well as theorists such as Susan Sontag, Gaston Bachelard, Roland Barthes, John Berger, and George Lakoff, Epperly connects Montgomerys practice of photography with the writers metaphors for home and belonging. Epperly examines thirty-five of Montgomerys photographs, demonstrating how they figure in the novelists life and fiction. She argues that the shapes in Montgomerys favourite place in nature - Lovers Lane in Cavendish P.E.I. - organized Montgomerys other photographs, underpinned her colourful descriptions, and grounded her aesthetics. Through Lovers Lane suggests how an artist creates metaphors that resonate within a single work, echo across a lifetime of writing and photography, and inspire readers and viewers across cultures and time.

Anne of Green Gables

During the s , Anne and Diana started their walks to the Avonlea school by the way of Lover's Lane. Anne would walk along the lane 'as far as the brook', where Diana would meet her, and they would continue along the path, under the arch of maple trees, until they came to a 'rustic bridge', which would take them beyond the lane into Mr. Barry 's back field. In the early hours of the morning, Matthew arrived at the Barry home with a doctor, and he and Anne returned to Green Gables through 'the glittering fairy arch of the Lover's Lane maples'. Throughout Anne's youth, she and Diana would play along Lover's Lane and the surrounding area, and Anne would often help Matthew by driving the cows home along the lane. After Anne forgave Gilbert, they made many walks along Lover's Lane as friends and, later, lovers.

In , Green Gables and its surrounding area became Prince be “Lovers' Lane,” the secluded cow path where Anne liked to “think out.

My first evening on Prince Edward Island, I found myself on the shore, scrambling across sun-bleached beach grass to circle an abandoned lighthouse. The Gulf of St. Lawrence crashed in moody bursts before me, the water reflecting the deepening gray of the sky. My feet sank into drifts of sand until I turned inland, down a spongy red clay road that edged a verdant meadow. In the distance, the cheerful lights of my bed-and-breakfast, a rambling 19th-century farmhouse, beckoned. But on this country lane, with the roar of the gulf filling my ears, I could almost imagine myself a solitary traveler and not one of the thousands of tourists who flock every year to the green gabled house only a few miles from where I stood.
