Well, about the whole series, really. I just re-read Emily Climbs and Emily’s Ques, and it struck me just how very, very creepy her relationship with Dean Priest is all the way through. He’s her father’s age, and he falls possesively in love with an eleven-year-old, and (by the third book) almost convinces her to marry him. He puts her work down, and patronises her, even though he knows she has great talent, so he can keep a larger part of her love.
I don’t know if I’m reading extreme creepiness into him, or if he really is warped, and I don’t know whether Montgomery meant him to be as disturbing a character as he is. Any opinions or thoughts?
