"We are glad to see the poems of our best Southern author collected in two hand. some volumes. Here we have embalmed in graphic and melodious verse the scenic wonders and charms of the South ; and this feature of the work alone gives it a permanent and special value. None can read ' Southern Passages and Pictures' without feeling that therein the poetic aspects, association, and sentiment of Southern life and scenery are vitally enshrined. 'Norman Maurice' is a dramatic poem of peculiar scope and unusual interest; and 'Atalantis,' a poem upon which some of the author's finest powers of thought and expression are richly lavished. None of our poets offer so great a variety of style or a more original choice of subjects."�Boston Traveller.
"His versification is fluent and mellifluous, yet not lacking in point of vigor when an energetic style is requisite to the subject."�N. Y. Commercial Advertiser.
"Mr. Simms ranks among the first poets of our country, and these well-printed volumes contain poetical productions of rare merit."�Washington (I). C.) Star.
