edited by William Gilmore Simms
Comprised primarily of the long poems "The Vision of Cortes," "Cain," and "The Tri-Color", this volume also contains a number of shorter works, some of which had been previously published in other venues. The subject matter of the volume ranges widely, moving from the 1518 expedition of Hernán Cortés into Mexico to the French Revolution of 1830.
