Synopsis: Edgar Allan Poe viewed William Gilmore Simms “in invention, in vigor, in movement, in the power of exciting interest, and in the artistical arrangement of his themes,” as surpassing “any of his countrymen.” After the Civil War, long years of neglect tarnished Simms’s reputation as “the central figure in the literature of the Old South,” as Jay B. Hubbell described him. However, as John Caldwell Guilds fully demonstrates here, the magnitude of Simms’s achievement cannot be denied. Simms produced seventy-two book-length works, including novels, short story collections, poetry, drama, literary criticism, essays, history and biography, encompassing ante-colonial America, the English colonies, the Revolutionary War, and the rampaging frontier. In the first full-length biography since 1892, Guilds restores Simms to his proper place as a major figure in American letters and reintroduces the reading public to this at once endearing and insufferable man, a husband, father, planter, and author.

Book Description University of Arkansas Press, Fayetteville, Arkansas, U.S.A., 1999. Softcover. Condition: Very Good+. 426 pp; This is a great book with only trace creasing on spine and ink checkmarks in margin of two pages. Still book remains attractive with solid binding, and completely clean tight and unmarked interior. Book includes appendix, notes, BW photos, and index. Although Simms was a prolific writer and vigorously supporter of slavery and the Southern way life, Guilds provides a much needed rescue from obscurity in this lavishly detailed academic study and shows how Simms's historical fiction should earn him a place as a major American writer.; Always Delivery Confirmation. 35 Years Fast Excellent Service.
