The Final Jeopardy Answer is: Gone With the Wind

Final Jeopardy Explanation – Monday, December 4 2023

The novel described by the Atlanta History Center as being “both beloved and condemned from almost the moment of its publication” in 1936 is “Gone with the Wind” by Margaret Mitchell. This novel, set in the American South during the Civil War and Reconstruction Era, quickly became a bestseller and remains a significant work in American literature. However, it has also been the subject of controversy.

“Gone with the Wind” was praised for its vivid storytelling and complex characters, notably Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler. Its portrayal of the struggles during the Civil War and the changes in the South during Reconstruction captured the imagination of readers. The novel won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1937 and was adapted into a highly successful film in 1939.

Despite its popularity, the novel has been criticized for its portrayal of slavery and African Americans, and its romanticized view of the Old South. Critics argue that it perpetuates harmful racial stereotypes and glosses over the realities of slavery. The novel’s portrayal of the Confederacy and its aftermath has led to ongoing debates about its place in American culture, particularly in discussions about how the Civil War and its legacy are remembered and depicted.
