Thread Name: the literary controversy over Ossian
Subject: RE: the literary controversy over Ossian
Ah, so it was "finally settled" long before DSThomson's research was even begun, according to this authority. Another example of the arrogant confidence which so often springs from ignorance and which many in Scotland find characteristic of the British State. I wonder has the E.B. any mention of William Smellie yet?
