    Character Analysis: Mammy Short & chubby, with a voice like thunder, when she talks; everyone listens. I guess you think that the woman is a white Southern belle, but you’re wrong. Mammy is the house servant for the O’Hara and Butler family. It’s not mention in the film of her correct age but Mammy was about in her mid- forties during the Civil War. As a character, Mammy’s personality can best be described as ignorant and outspoken. When first seeing Mammy in the second scene, she’s calling other Character Analysis: Mammy Short & chubby, with a voice like thunder, when she talks; everyone listens. I guess you think that the woman is a white Southern belle, but you’re wrong. Mammy is the house servant for the O’Hara and Butler family. It’s not mention in the film of her correct age but Mammy was about in her mid- forties during the Civil War. As a character, Mammy’s personality can best be described as ignorant and outspoken. When first seeing Mammy in the second scene, she’s calling other Caucasians “white trash” to Scarlett and her mother. This shows how outspoken she is for a house servant of African decent. To call someone “white trash” is a racist slur that is counted as very ignorant. This character is also caring at all times. She looks out for the O’Hara and Butler family by tending to the children and helping the family with their personal problems. The viewers may like Mammy because she so compassion addition to her occupation, but on the hand the viewers may also not like Mammy because she is shown at times a racist African American. My character is introduced in the second scene, helping the O’Hara ladies prepare for the get- together at the Twelve Oaks plantation. During the movie, Mammy is going through the changes from the Antebellum to the Reconstruction. Yes, she stayed a house servant during the whole movie but her place of residence changed. Nothing really happened to Mammy in “Gone with the Wind”, but she was treated more like a human during the Reconstruction period. In this movie my character plays the part of a supporter of the South’s perspective of the war. Mammy symbolizes the beliefs of the South. The beliefs are that African American in the southern states enjoys working for Caucasian people without getting paid and this also stereotypical. My character helps create an understanding of the history of the Civil War by showing that the southern blacks didn’t want to be free and just stay where they are. Theme Analysis: Gender/ Role of Women Unlike any war prior, women had a lot to do with the Civil War from being in the house supporting their husbands to being on the line their selves. Women in had to stay home and take on the duties their husbands left behind. After the war, he women in the south had to do the work of the slaves now that they are free. Some women saw this war an opportunity to be leaders in abolition and equality. As the first scene plays out, you see two men trying to win Scarlett’s love; this shows how women used their whit to charm men. Another scene is when Scarlett is left to take care of her family during the war. She has to take care of a sickly woman, a baby and a house servant. This shows the courage that this woman had to get through the war safely, taking the will power of a man. My character Mammy takes the white women job while the white men are taking the men jobs. Mammy had to watch the kids, clean the house and cook for everyone. In the film the role of the women is portrayed as house wives and land workers. In history we learn about women being spies and even dressing up like men to be a soldier. In class we learned about the North’s perspective of the Civil War; their feelings toward the cause. Also in our readings about Reconstruction, we hear the good things the North did to support their opinions of slavery. In the film it’s shown the Southern perspective of the Civil War and Reconstruction. “Gone with the Wind”, shown that the blacks like to work for no pay and how bad the North was by invading the South. In the textbook, I learned more about the role of women in the war then the film. It was popular for women back then to be a house wife and take the children. The historical understanding is that women were supposed to be seen and not heard but that’s not how the women felt. They wanted their equality and they want it right then!

    I read this in high school when I found it at the parents' house whose child I babysat. So, every time I went over, if Josh was in bed, I'd read it. I was able to read the whole thing over one summer. I read it mostly because of all the cultural references, not so much because I am a fan of romance novels. It definitely has a certain resonance. After reading it, there is obviously a romantic element in the book but the setting (the South) in the Civil War was a great backdrop.

It sort of puts you in the mind of how Southerners were feeling during that time frame. I didn't know whether to applaud the main character, Scarlett, or hate her. She's the kind of stupid where it's either really mind-boggingly frustrating or perhaps just quite brilliant. That dilemma repeats throughout the book. But I like conflicted characters.

    The character Scarlet was so self absorbed that I found the first third of the book a bit of a chore but then as the book went on I really appreciated the attention that was paid to character development. I think I really lived the story through Scarlets eyes. What a fabulously sad story. It was difficult to see the inhumanities of that time so vulgarly exposed and at times celebrated. Despite hating scarlet through much of the book reading Gone with the Wind is an experience I will never forget The character Scarlet was so self absorbed that I found the first third of the book a bit of a chore but then as the book went on I really appreciated the attention that was paid to character development.

    I don't know why people love this story about a proud, arrogant, selfish woman to whom nothing good ever happens and that ends in despair and hopelessness. The book is one racist, trash mouthed adventure of one tale of despair after another all to a character that (I, at least) was completely unsympathetic towards. I'm not really a tragedy sort of reader, though, so I'm sure if you love hopelessness and despair, this is the book for you. Contrarily, I do enjoy the movie.

    God I love this book so much! Alternately annoyed and delighted by Scarlett, Rhett, Ashley and Melanie, I have just had to buy the sequel - just so that Rhett and Scarlett can have a happy ever after! A really heavy book, but so enjoyable, happy, funny, tragic and sometimes so very sad - all the ingredients of a fantastic book set in such an epic setting! Lots of food for thought!!

    Interesting how the story was able to continue and fill in the blanks and answer questions from the 1st reading. Again True Love abounds and flourishes.

    At 41 discs long this might be the longest audiobook I've listened to but every piece of it was incredible. The narrator, Linda Stephens, didn't just read this, she truly performed it. The book itself is epic and beautifully written. At 41 discs long this might be the longest audiobook I've listened to but every piece of it was incredible.

    Gone with The Wind by Margaret Mitchell This novel has everything you could wish for and more- love and hate, War and Peace, embryonic feminism, slavery issues, bravery, humor, a wonderful plot and I have only started naming a few attractions- for the whole it would take many pages.

One of the best books ever that has inspired one of the best films, this is a rare chance. Scarlett O’Hara is one of the best heroines and also one of the bravest, most resilient and determined characters that have been in print. This novel has everything you could wish for and more- love and hate, War and Peace, embryonic feminism, slavery issues, bravery, humor, a wonderful plot and I have only started naming a few attractions- for the whole it would take many pages. The story starts near the beginning of the American Civil War, when two admirers talk with Scarlett about the upcoming ball: - We’ll tell you a secret, if we can dance with you - What is the secret - There is going to be a war soon. In the first place, Scarlett comes across as a bit of a negative personage- spoiled, arrogant, used with having it her own way most of the time. To add insult to injury, she supports slavery. There is a first shock for Scarlett when she finds out that the man she loves- Ashley is going to marry Melanie Hamilton. At a later stage in this impressive and long novel we find out that the romantic interest in Ashley has been rather complicated. With hindsight, it might have been an infatuation and not love. However, Ashley is one of the main characters and his influence over Scarlett is strong up to the end, or quite near it. With his wife, there is a strange love and hate relationship, even if Scarlett has to take care of her and their baby, during the worst battles around Atlanta. When Scarlett faced Ashley with the news that he is getting married, there is a scene: - I thought that you cared for me Ashley - You have so many admirers, that I never thought… - Oh, how could you?! I love you! And then there are shouts and objects flying. Witness to all this scandal is Rhett Butler that is the other main character, opposing for most of the time Scarlett, then loving and hating her. He liked what he saw and starts courting the young woman in an interesting, mocking and ironical way. Scarlett has a first marriage, becoming Mrs. Hamilton, only because Ashley was getting married, and her husband dies quickly, making her a widow unwilling to give up the pleasure of dressing in beautiful dresses and dancing at parties. But Rhett Butler solves at least part of the problem, by bidding good money in order to dance with Scarlett- money that would go to the war effort. With the war won by the North, the situation becomes desperate, and Scarlett even shoots a soldier dead, when he was trying to rob and eventually rape her, and perhaps Melanie. She becomes married a second time, in order to save her beloved property- Tara. Trying to lure Rhett, she makes a new dress out of her curtains, for there is nothing left, indeed, Tara is about to go under on account of the new exorbitant taxes. The second husband is shot and there is much more going on in a novel that you should read, for it offers an amazing pleasure

However he gave her many things and did for her a lot. Why could he do such a things. When he asked Scarlet to marry, He was saying he doesnot care if she does not love him. I can not understand the feeling. Is he happy?? I also want to say to Scarlet. Was Her life happy for her? 5.This was a long story. It was a little difficult. Because it is not only about the love story but also war, money and family. I think this story can not express the depth of this story only in level 4 books. If I get good reading skills, I want to try to read again by thiker book.

    I have read this book through at least four times. Though it has dated themes about slavery and the South in general it is a wonderful read. One must remember to read this book in the context of the time period during which it was written as well as the historical period of the novel. The characters have well-drawn and one feels as if one knows them. Scarlet is especially intriguing -- a young woman fighting the conventions of her time, paying the price for her rebellion.

    I laugh out loud at this book. It is the most entertaining book I have read in a long long time. The characters are wonderfully developed. I love that! I am actually listening to this as I exercise and do my yard work. It made planting potatoes fun. It is a thick book and the audiobook is almost 49 hours long. We will see how long it take me to do my yard work anyway.

    I really enjoyed this book, despite the "N" word and the Lord's name being taken in vain so often. I can't wait to read the sequel "Scarlet" to find out what happens next. Well worth the time it took to get through it! If you enjoyed the movie you really should read this book. SO SO SO much was left out, more than any other book/movie comparison I have experienced before. I really enjoyed this book, despite the "N" word and the Lord's name being taken in vain so often.

    Fiddle dee Dee!! So glad I finally read this classic... MM has such clarity of thought when she describes the characters and the setting,it is hard not to imagine the scenes right before your eyes... Set in the familiar Georgia cities minus the modern day landmarks made it a much more interesting read for me..

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Gone With the Wind left me sleepless all night. How is it possible for two soul mates, for two lovers who are so close to each other not to realize what they have before its gone, gone with the wind. The book has an open ending, does Scarlet win Rhett back or has she wounded him so much that this has become impossible?

    The second part was also mesmerising. To be completely honest, I have to say that I liked this better than the first. While the previous part worked as an introduction of characters, this one developped them and gave them another dimension. I clearly remember the torrent of emotions I experienced because of this book. It was enchanting. It left me breathless. In need for more.

    A great classic that takes you back in time to the Civil War Era. Very similar to the movie. A little hard to enjoy and read for me because I felt that there was too much description. It will always be a classic and Mitchell did a great job.
