Pelayo

A Story of the Goth

William Gilmore Simms

Paperback

$41.99

Hardcover

William Gilmore Simms made one of the more curious decisions of his literary career by reworking a piece of verse-drama juvenilia into the novel Pelayo: A Story of the Goth, published in two volumes in 1838. In writing Pelayo, Simms left the romantic epics of America's history and frontier on which his reputation had been built for a tale of medieval Spain and the beginnings of the Reconquista.
