Reaction Paper #1: Answer the following in a well-organized, formal,
argumentative/persuasive essay. You do NOT have to address ALL of the themes and
issues raised in the essay prompt. You should, however, try to incorporate some of them
into an overall thesis/argument. MAKE A CLEAR, PRECISE THESIS AND
ORGANIZE YOUR ESSAY AROUND IT! Remember to use specific information from
the film as evidence to support your argument(s) and that the general rule in formal
writing is to avoid self-reference (no “I”).
1. What view(s) of the Civil War is portrayed in Gone With The Wind? How and why
was the war portrayed (i.e. context of the times, biases, etc.)? Was this movie really just a
love story? Possible themes to discuss: Pro-North/Pro-South; the significance of battles;
the war on the home front; the role of women; gender (male and female roles); race;
class; religion; ethnicity (the O’Hara family was Irish); whether the outcome was
inevitable; the role of the individual in times of war (think of the scene where Scarlett
was looking for the doctor at the railroad depot as an example), etc. In other words, react
to the movie, but also try to make an argument—from both a historical and cinematic
perspective.
Your answer must be typed, double-spaced, and should be about 3-5 pages in length. Use
specific information from the film as evidence to support your argument(s). If you use an
outside source (reviews, books, internet sources, etc.), be sure to provide a citation for
them
