** There are some references made throughout the Montgomery's work to the plight of children who were adopted from asylums and used by their new guardians solely to work on the farm or in the house, without receiving affection, good clothing, and a proper education.

* EvilRoy: He's not evil, but Roy Gardiner does serve perfectly as a parody of a young Anne's desires for a husband. He's tall, dark, and handsome. He writes poetry and sends her flowers. The problem? He's really dull. Even his sister tells Anne (after she rejects his proposal) that she would have been horribly bored if she married him.

* DeadGuyJunior: Most of Anne's kids are named after dead people or family/friends. Ditto Leslie's kids, and most of the other Islanders'. This was a fairly standard naming convention in that place & time.

** This happens hilariously in ''Anne of Windy Poplars.'' Anne facilitates a hasty elopment for two young people, Dovie and Jarvis, who had been engaged for over a year but were unable to get married because Dovie's father did not approve. So, they elope and Anne is left with the task of telling Dovie's notoriously bad-tempered father. She goes to break the news ...only to have her father say that he already knew and is relieved, as he was beginning to think Dovie would never muster up the pluck to go through with it. He'd picked out Jarvis for his daughter when they were children, but was GenreSavvy enough to realize that Jarvis would lose interest if there were no challenge, so he pretended to disapprove in order to encourage Jarvis to hang around more.
