Gone With The Wind

Harper Collins, 2013 M07 30 - 1051 páginas

Gone with the Wind is the story of Scarlett O’Hara, a spoiled Southern belle who uses her wits and her wiles to lift herself and her family out of the ashes left by Sherman’s March to the Sea during the American Civil War, only to learn the true meaning of love and friendship as she loses those who have become most dear to her.

First published in 1936, Gone with the Wind was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1937 and was the basis for the epic David O. Selznick film starring Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh, Leslie Howard, Olivia de Havilland, and Hattie McDaniel, who won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Mammy. Gone with the Wind is one of the most enduring tales of the Southern experience during the Civil War and the reconstruction that followed and was the only novel published by American writer Margaret Mitchell during her lifetime.

A thrilling story with deeply flawed and realistic characters. Extremely enjoyable and revealing. Mitchell manages to weave a yarn full of poignant events, some more historical and others more fictional, skillfully into an epic of masterful proportions. Leer comentario completo

Acerca del autor (2013)

American journalist and author Margaret Mitchell is best known for her epic Civil War-era novel, Gone with the Wind, for which she was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1937. Mitchell was born and bred in the South, and family stories about the Civil War influenced her writing, particularly Gone with the Wind. Mitchell was also an accomplished journalist, writing more than 125 features for the Atlanta Journal before retiring due to an injury. Although Gone with the Wind was the only novel to be published by Mitchell during her life (Lost Laysen, a novella written by Mitchell as a teenager was published posthumously in 1996), she continues to be considered one of the pre-eminent authors of the early 1900s.
