1866. Wilson has been called the foremost Southern novelist of her time. She wrote nine books of which St. Elmo is her most well-known. The book begins: He stood and measured the earth; and the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills did bow. These words of the prophet upon Shigionoth were sung by a sweet, happy, childish voice, and to a strange, wild, anomalous tune-solemn as the Hebrew chant of Deborah, and fully as triumphant.
