- GONE WITH THE WIND
Details“After all, tomorrow is another day!” It’s April 1861. Georgia, southern United States. Scarlet O’Hara—the vivacious, narcissistic, and pampered daughter of a plantation owner in Atlanta—in a fit of choleric contempt over rejection by her desired man, Ashley Wilkes, hurls a figurine against the wall. And behind the depths of the sofa, Rhett Butler is woken up from his nap. “You’re no gentleman,” fires the southern belle. “And you’re no lady!” the rogue fires back. Scarlet, for vengeance, accepts the marriage proposal from Charles Hamilton—Ashley Wilke’s brand new brother-in-law. But at the outbreak of the American Civil War he joins the army and dies of pneumonia followed by measles, a not-so-gallantry death. Through wiles and widowhood, Scarlet manages to keep her independence and becomes an astute business woman. Rhett Butler—the dark, flashy, and scandalous visitor from Charleston—who is a professional gambler and blockade runner, is enamoured by her survival instincts. Around the social turmoils of the war, what becomes of O’Hara and Rhett Butler, an outcast whom she marries for money? The only novel by Margaret Mitchell, Gone With the Wind continues to seduce and rock the world seventy-nine years after its publication.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Margaret Munnerlyn Mitchell (November 8, 1900 – August 16, 1949) was an American author and journalist.
