The customs and culture of british society in civil war era as depicted in margret mitchell’s novel gone with the wind.
The customs and conventions a society follows is an implicit sign of its culture. In Margret Michell’s work ‘Gone with the wind’,we get a glimpse of the practices and mannerisms of society of the times. At that time the fairer sex were never accorded much respect and like the dictum of Mrs.Bennet in Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and prejudice’, we find parents constantly and desperately trying to marry off their daughters to the most appropriate and wealthy suitors possible .The novel throws light on southern England’s customs and ancient ideals .There are references to howthe society used to treat the black community as well as the fashionable dresses and food habits of the people of the time.Hence the novel is an ideal example of the culture and practices of the British community of the civil war time.
