Thread Name: the literary controversy over Ossian
Subject: RE: the literary controversy over Ossian
Summary: at least sixteen tales can be traced in MacPherson's works. ( From the handwritten notes I made near forty years ago. This was as one facet of a long work of research I was doing, and in terms of the content of my own writing a very, very small percentage. Nevertheless, I preferred to find out as much as I could from the best authorities, in any field that was relevant, rather than rely ongeneralisations )
