Margaret Mitchell - LIFE STORIES
 
 
6/30/1936     Gone With the Wind . . . Done Gone
On this day in 1936, Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind was published. It had been extensively promoted, chosen as the July selection by the Book-of-the-Month Club, and so gushed about in pre-publication reviews -- "Gone With the Wind is very possibly the greatest American novel," said Publisher's Weekly -- that it was certain to sell, and to provoke parody.

A biography explores Mitchell's life and works.

"Although Gone with the Wind brought Mitchell fame and tremendous fortune, it seems to have brought little joy. Chased by the press and public, the author and her husband lived modestly and travelled rarely. Also questions about the book's literary status, melodrama and racism led to critical neglect that continued well in the 1960s. The story is told from a Southern woman's point of view and paints a vivid picture of Southern life through the lives of two families, and their slaves, friends, and relatives."
Literary Traveler
Offers a biography that explores the author's interest in reading and writing, social life, and the creation of Gone with the Wind.

"Margaret Mitchell admired people who had gumption, people who fought their way through hard times triumphantly and came out survivors. She said that if her novel, Gone with the Wind, had a theme it was survival, 'I wrote about the people who had gumption and the people who didn't.'"
