Product Overview

1885. Simms, American poet, novelist and historian, whose novels are almost wholly southern, and marked invariably with local color; many of them are historical, but for the most part they aim to reproduce the various types of southern and southwestern life. Confession begins: The pains and penalties of folly are not necessarily death. They were in old times, perhaps, according to the text, and he who kept not to himself the secrets of his silly heart was surely crucified or burnt. Though lacking in penalties extreme like these, the present is not without its own. All times, indeed, have their penalties for folly, much more certainly than for crime; and this fact furnishes one of the must human arguments in favor of the doctrine of rewards and punishments in the future state.
