10 June 1893 - 26 October 1952
I suggest reading Carrie-Anne Brown's thoughtful analysis of Gone With the Wind.
A wonderful analysis indeed. I thought that Gone With the Wind was very well-written, and I thought that the movie version was very well-made. That being said, I can see the horrific levels of racism and sexism in both.
Too many people these days refuse to take an objective view of anything, and anyone who has the least little favorable thing to say about a work that has been deemed problematic is automatically a horrible monster who approves of terrible things. It is very difficult to have a thoughtful discussion anymore.

I do read and appreciate your comments.
