    A much overlooked Man of Letters that helped shape American literature.

    With the advent of the Civil War, SC Poet Laureate Simms was a prominent young poets in the Antebellum South. The thrust of his poetry was initially romantic. Despite all of the distractions & recriminations, i.e.-barbaric burning of his 10,000 vol. personal library by Union soldiers, Simms should be recognized as a very talented American Poet.

The Lost Pleiad

NOT in the sky,
Where it was seen
So long in eminence of light serene,—
Nor on the white tops of the glistering wave,
Nor down in mansions of the hidden deep,
Though beautiful in green
And crystal, its great caves of mystery,—
Shall the bright watcher have
Her place, and, as of old, high station keep!
