Description - Poems of Ossian and Related Works by James Macpherson

Macpherson's "Ossian" aroused enthusiasm and considerable controversy in the late-18th and early-19th centuries. This volume provides a modern edition of Macpherson's Ossianic poetry. It is an annotated version, based on the 1765 text of the "Works of Ossian" which is republished here in its entirety. Major variants from other editions are included, together with a descriptive register of Ossianic names. Ossian expert, Fiona Stafford, provides a critical introduction explaining the genesis of the work and its impact on 18th-century culture. All Macpherson's Ossianic poetry is included - "Fragments of Ancient Poetry", "Fingal" and "Temora" - as well as his accompanying prefaces and dissertations and Hugh Blair's influential "Critical Dissertation of the Poems of Ossian"
