Abstract [eng] The present MA paper examines the adaptation of the 1908 Canadian Bildungsroman Anne of Green Gables, written by Lucy Maud Montgomery, to a 2017 TV show Anne with an E, created by Moira Walley-Beckett. The analysis is based on the theories of adaptation set out by Linda Hutcheon and Julie Sanders, as well as the cultural and social implications and reception of each version. In using these theories and circumstances surrounding each version and its medium, I examine what the differences between them imply on a socio-cultural level. The focus of the thesis is not fidelity to the original, but rather the comparison of the two narratives, as well as the analysis of the social messaging behind these narratives in terms of its delivery, audience, and socio-cultural context. It is evident that even though the novel and the TV series are part of the same universe of Anne, each version is concerned with different ideological issues, making Anne with an E function in contemporary society as a separate entity.
