Probst, Robert E. Elements of Literature. Austin [Tex.: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 2000. Print. "They were careless people, Tom and Daisy - they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made . . ." (Fitzgerald 187). "Oh, what fun it was to be rich To give parties and never count To buy the most expensive furniture and dresses and food and never think about the bills... Oh, the jealous fools who said money wasn't everything" (Mitchell 1214). Controversy = Yes
Margaret Mitchell's novel and David O. Selznick's film

"We need to be reminded that glossing over the hardships of slavery and Reconstruction is no small crime, and that romanticizing the past is a dangerous, though lucrative, business. In short, we need to remember that acknowledging reality is more important than preserving a utopian memory" (Romanticizing the Old South: A Feminist, Historical Analysis of Gone With the Wind). Many American started to understand about the Civil War based on how Margaret Mitchell wrote about it. They understood this war than any other single author who wrote it. When the movie came out in 1939, more Americans started to recognized Mitchell's novel.

Received:

Mitchell took it to a different level of writing about the Civil War.

"The New York Times Book Review says, “This is beyond doubt one of the most remarkable first novels produced by an American writer.... I would go so far as to say that it is, in narrative power, in sheer readability, surpassed by nothing in American fiction” (Finkle).
