Gone with Atlas?

I just finished reading Gone with the Wind, and it gave me a lot to think about.  The strangest thought was to wonder if Ayn Rand ever read Gone with the Wind?  I need to think more about it but I will let you know more by next Friday. 
My first thought is that Gone with the Wind takes the Lord's name in vain at least 15-20 times.  That is enough for me to hesitate recommending it to young teens. 

Let you know more next Friday.

  1. Now that I have figured out how to post a comment...
    I think it is very likely that Ayn Rand read 'Gone With the Wind'. She came to the United States 10 years before this book was published. This book received a Pulitzer one year after it was published. And I am guessing, but I think, Ayn would have been looking for material to use for setting her goals for her own material. No matter who you are you need to know your audience. Reading current Pulitzer material would help you know what your audience likes.
