The Cassique of Kiawah: A Colonial Romance
University of Arkansas Press, 2003 - 560 Seiten
First drafted as a novel called Oyster Point when the author was only eighteen, The Cassique of Kiawah was finally published thirty-five years later, in 1859, at the height of William Gilmore Simms's career. It is a history through fiction of early Charleston, South Carolina, and completed Simms's series of Revolutionary War novels. Through satire and realism he portrays the charm and the corruption of late seventeenth-century Charleston society, and he contrasts the quiet majesty of the wilderness with the violence of man. The book was widely reviewed and highly praised, and it confirmed Simms's position as the nation's best-known novelist.
