Cat & Author: May

Margaret Mitchell 
(November 8, 1900 – August 16, 1949) 

An American author and journalist, Margaret only published one novel. She wrote “Gone with the Wind”, the American Civil War classic novel that was made into a legendary movie. She won both the National Book Award for Most Distinguished Novel of 1936, and the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1937. Later, a collection of Mitchell’s early writings were published.

  1. That novel was worth more than a pile of other novels that are now forgotten.
    That kitty photo would arouse the male kitties in my barn, the rascals. They are always on the prowl. Lol..



  2. I have always enjoyed Margaret Mitchell and her thoughts on a life so long ago. I always wondered what would have happened if she hadn't been run over by that car and what other great novels she might have published. I have never seen a photo of her before, thanks for posting that.


  3. The green eyes in the cat picture are SO Vivien Leigh, SO Scarlett. It's easy to view this type of comic as racist, and yet let's remember who had the upper hand in that relationship. No matter what Scarlett threatened, Mammy always put her (and Rhett) in their places.

    Great post, McG, sure to stir up some issues, no? Love, Amy


  4. Mom said she had no idea that Margaret Mitchell died at such a young age. We love the kitties in their period costumes. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette
