Why Scarlett O’Hara is so very stupid


I know I am a bit of topic here, since there is not even a wisp of Jewry anywhere in Gone with the Wind. But following my last review, I was reinspired to read it, for probably the third or fourth time. How did I not remember how stupid Scarlett’s “love” of Ashley was? It is truly a testament to how much I’ve grown up that I actually recognize patterns of stupid. Her feelings for him smack of a fourteen year old’s crush. This great love is not just a delusion, but frankly stupid stubborn behavior of a spoiled brat who doesn’t see the potential for real love and compatibility that’s in front of her the entire time. So so so stupid! I hate stupid.
