by William Gilmore SimmsI got this book from a website called "Forgotten Books." Reading it helped me understand why it got that way.
It is one of the worst examples of sentimentalism I've ever come across, as well as being wildly unbalanced: one moment you'll be laughing at an honestly funny scene, the next, somebody's being killed in a strange mix of graphic violence and bathos. There is also an underlying message that mothers, representing society as a whole (but still very much themselves) are responsible for much of humanity's faults. A big ol' (500 page) mess.
