《빨간 머리 앤》은 캐나다의 여성작가 루시 모드 몽고메리의 1908년작 소설이다. 원제는 《그린게이블즈의 앤》이다.
앤 셜리라는 감성이 풍부하고 말이 많은 소녀의 몸과 마음이 성장해 가는 과정을 풍부한 어휘력과 감성이 풍부한 문체로 묘사하고 있다. 모두 38장으로 구성되어 있고, 루시의 고향이기도 한 프린스에드워드 섬의 시골인 에이번리에 대한 낭만적 묘사, 등장인물들의 감정에 대한 서술이 잘되어 있는 점이 소설의 장점이다.

In a lifetime full of being able to reread books over and over again, Anne of Green Gables is high on my list of "books I can reread at any time." It's one of the most delicious books I've ever come across, for the writing, the atmosphere, the characters and the scenery. Anne is a loveable girl, but there are so many other characters that capture your heart that it's impossible to pick a favorite. There's Matthew, Mrs. Lynde, Marilla, Aunt Josephine... actually the weakest characters are Anne's childhood companions. I found them all rather typical and undistinguished, whereas the adult personalities fairly leap off the page with their vivid and well-written personalities. Josie Pye was actually the best of the bunch for the children. The only other weakness is the big dose of religion, which is hardly surprising considering it was published in 1908 by a woman who was engaged to a minister. It does at least try and lighten the severe religion of the adults with the dreamy, imaginative version Anne has in her own head, but it is fairly heavy-handed at times - such as when a teacher tells her children that by age 20 their characters will be fixed and pretty much implies that there's no hope of changing thereafter - what a thing to tell a child! Anyway, those weaknesses really are completely incapable of spoiling the book. It is charming, it is beautiful, and it is a wonderful book to curl up with at any time of year and revisit as with an old and faithful friend.
