DocSouth has put up a new highlights collection, which features Nineteenth Century Student Writing at the University of North Carolina. This highlight provides an overview of student publications and student writing.
An 1842 poem written by UNC student Robert T. Hall stands out as a particularly funny example. DocSouth has presented his work, “Elegy on a Sore Toe,” in two different formats. You can view the poem in the author’s original hand here, or you can read a transcribed version of the work here.
