When taken in the context of Dowson's poem about "Cynara," the phrase "gone with the wind" alludes to erotic loss. She allows herself one night of lamenting all that has been lost; the next morning, she marches blindly into the future. She returns home and tells Rhett she does not want more children. Rhett turns his attention toward Bonnie, dotes on her, spoils her, and worries about her reputation when she is older.

Scarlett is an evil, conniving drama queen who if she had been raised in a society where women were actually allowed to do things would rule the world, but since she wasn't, she just learned to wrap the world around her finger and tell it to go to hell. His "pallid skin literalizes the idea of Confederate death. Eugene Mitchell went to bed early the night the rioting began, but was awakened by the sounds of gunshots.
