Lover of the Fancy

Early C20th American culture and dissent

Gone with the Wind
Margaret Mitchell


“My dear, I don’t give a damn.” Margaret Mitchell’s page-turning, sweeping American epic has been a classic for over eighty years. Beloved and thought by many to be the greatest of the American novels, Gone with the Wind is a story of love, hope and loss set against the tense historical background of the American Civil War. The lovers at the novel’s centre – the selfish, privileged Scarlett O’Hara and rakish Rhett Butler – are magnetic: pulling readers into the tangled narrative of a struggle to survive that cannot be forgotten. This novel brought fame and a Pulitzer Prize to Margaret Mitchell.
