Ashley Wilkes (Gone with the Wind) ok, so this is a male character, but we were having trouble locating significant female literary characters by the name of Ashley. Ashley Wilkes is a central character in Margret Mitchell’s 1936 Pulitzer Prize winning novel, “Gone with the Wind.” He is the blond, honorable and quintessential southern man from an excellent family who serves as juxtaposition to the dark, opportunistic character of Rhett Butler. Ashley initially courts Scarlett O’Hara but eventually marries the kind and noble Melanie Hamilton, thus setting into motion Scarlett’s central conflict in the novel.
