"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 (D. C.) Star.
