Ⅳ. Enlightment for modern women:

(1) Change alone the circumstances

It’s not easy to let a person forget the prosperous living and live a poor life. In the movie Sense and Sensibility, when the mother disliked and avoided their new but shabby cottage, her daughter Elinor said: “Things are different now, we are no loner wealthy, and you cannot judge the cottage by the standard of our former splendid manor.”(from the movie sense and sensibility. http://www.360kan.com/tv/RLptcaKoSzDuNX.html ) Scarlett is like Elinor, they changed their minds and refused to sit still and waiting for death.

Be brave when facing hardships

“As God as my witness, they 're not going to lick me. I 'm going to live through this and when it 's all over, I 'll never be hungry again. No, nor any of my folk. If I have to lie, steal, cheat, or kill, as God as my witness, I 'll never be hungry again.” (Mitchell Margret. Gone with the Wind. Nanjing. Yilin Press.2000.Print page509)this is what Scarlett said when she returned to Tara. I am touched, moved and was proud of Scarlett when reading this.

In Sense and Sensibility, Margaret said: “If I were a brother instead of I am a sister, I would fight Willoughby and kill him with my sword. I wish I was a man. Girls cannot do everything. Men can ride about the country and do things, and girls just sit and wait for things to happen.”(from the movie sense and sensibility http://www.360kan.com/tv/RLptcaKoSzDuNX.html )

But why can’t a girl be brave and do things like men do? Scarlett did. Being brave may not secure success, but to be a coward is bound to fail.

ⅵ. Conclusion

This book is popular around the world, because it taught people a lot and especially suggested girls what to do in life.

It shows the importance of loving life and cherishing hope, and what good characters should women have. It also tells us trust is necessary between
