The Poems of Ossian and Related Works

James Macpherson

Howard Gaskill


This is the first modern edition of all Macpherson's Ossianic poetry, including Fragments of Ancient Poetry, Fingal and Temora - as well as his accompanying prefaces and dissertations, and Hugh Blair's Critical Dissertation on the Poems of Ossian. Based on the 1765 text of the Works of Ossian, major variants from the other editions are included, together with a comprehensive register of Ossianic names.


An extremely important book that will interest scholars working in the fields of post-colonial, feminist and cultural studies. It will also interest anyone else who is concerned to gain an accurate picture of eighteenth-century literary history.
