Description

The thirteenth volume in the ongoing Arkansas Edition of the works of Simms, The Partisan is the first in order of publication of Simms’s Revolutionary War romances. Although Simms took advantage of the novelist’s prerogative to invent characters and events for his saga, he did so with a historian’s eye, making extensive use of official histories; letters, diaries, and other documents; family traditions; and unpublished and published memoirs. Simms gives human interest to the novel’s historical framework with two love triangles, mixing romantic conventions with gritty realism that outlines the four classes of Simms’s ideal society. The Partisan is also remarkable among Simms’s work for its use of symbols,
indicating, perhaps, a new intention for the novel. The result is a satisfying work of literary art enlivened with adventure and humor while remaining true to the history behind it.
