In response to scarlett@pemberley????, written by kelly elizabeth on November 10, 1997 at 16:02:12
or have i picked up on something when i got the impression that perberlians have something against scarlett o'hara and hoop skirts???
Kelly Elizabeth: I think that you're probably refering to my comment that Scarlett was silly and naive. I really don't have anything against her. In fact I like Gone With the Wind and I thought that Scarlett was not a bad sequel really. I just think that compared to some of Jane Austen's characters she appears silly and naive......although her character does change as time and books progress. It's just a personal opinion! Infact I'm quite fascinated with the American Civil war period - being British we don't learn about it in school so until I started reading American literature it was a bit of a mystery to me! Sorry if I offended!!
