Gone With the Wind Chapter 51

By Margaret Mitchell

Chapter 51

  • Scarlett goes out to talk to Ashley.
  • He's jealous and babbles at her about how coarse Rhett is.
  • She was already going to tell Rhett no more sex and no more babies, but now she actually does so.
  • He says he doesn't care because he'll go find other women elsewhere.
  • Also he says if he did care he would just rape her. Nice.
