This paper compares Flaubert’s Madame Bovary and L.M. Montgomery’s “Anne of Green Gables” through the literary power of imagination in the lives of these heroines.

This paper contrasts the novels “Madame Bovary” and “Anne of Green Gables” in terms of their strong imaginative rebellious heroines that impacted their society at the time of the release. Both books had enormous popularity in their time. The paper explores how these heroines significantly express the power of imagination and literature in the lives of “everyday” women. Their lives are examples and warnings for temperance.
“At first glance, the improbable comparison of Flaubert’s Madame Bovary to L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables seems amusing and far-fetched. Although written in different languages over fifty years apart, and representing completely different societies, there is a connection. Bovary is a vulgar tale of adultery and struggle, ending in suicide. Anne, a children’s novel, portrays the life of a small orphan on P.E.I. So what is it that continues to connect the two in my mind?”
