摘要
《绿山墙的安妮》是著名的加拿大作家露西·莫德·蒙哥马利的第一部长篇小说,出版于 1908 年。此书的出版不仅照亮了一个时代加拿大人的心灵,而且使得加拿大本土文学在世界文坛上占有一席之地。目前对于安妮性格的研究主要集中在她的神经质,活泼善变,自我陶醉,叛逆,早熟,想象力丰富,热爱自然热爱生活。但对这些性格的分析都是以固定的,不变的视角展开的。然而很少有研究用变化的发展的视角来看待安妮的性格和命运及其相互作用。因此,这个较新的角度还需要我们进一步探究。 本文分为三个章节:

第一章:简介。这章主要介绍作者及其作品《绿山墙的安妮》和目前国内外对其的研究现状。 第二章:性格与命运。主要分析安妮在成长的三个不同阶段中的性格和际遇及其相互影响。 第三章:结论。结论部分总结了安妮的性格与性格变化,经历对性格的作用,性格对命运的影响,以作为我们理解人生和生活实践的指南。 关键词:安妮,性格,经历,命运。
