By Margaret Mitchell

Chapter 11

  • Scarlett secretly reads Ashley's letters, which she's been doing for a while because she is completely untrustworthy.
  • Ashley writes about how the war is pointless and he misses the past; he also thinks Rhett was right and the South is going to lose.
  • Scarlett is bored by the letter.
  • She doesn't understand Ashley, but she still loves him.
  • Then she looks in the mirror and is cheered by the fact that she is still pretty.
