Description

Though Anne of Green Gables is written for all ages, it has been considered a children s novel since the mid twentieth century Matthew Cuthbert, who s that she ejaculated Where is the boy Matthew had been to the train station to fetch the child they were to adopt, a boy Marilla had insisted on a boy There wasn t any boy, said Matthew wretchedly There was only her He nodded at the girl He didn t know her name He was embarrassed to realize that he had never even asked her name No boy But there must have been a boy, insisted Marilla We sent word to Mrs Spencer to bring a boy Well, she didn t She brought her I asked the station master And I had to bring her home She couldn t be left there, no matter where the mistake had come in Well, this is a pretty piece of business ejaculated Marilla During this dialogue the child had remained silent, her eyes roving from one to the other, all the animation fading out of her face Suddenly she seemed to grasp the full meaning of what had been said Dropping her precious carpet bag she sprang forward a step and clasped her hands You don t want me she cried You don t want me because I m not a boy I might have expected it Nobody ever did want me I might have known it was all too beautiful to last I might have known nobody really did want me Oh, what shall I do I m going to burst into tears And burst into tears the little girl did
