Thread Name: the literary controversy over Ossian
Subject: RE: the literary controversy over Ossian
Agreed, Buachaill, with one exception: anti-Scottish sentiments may well enter in that matter, but would scarcely be a major point. Those who were most critical of JMP were people who had hoped for an epos of Scottish pride and were eventually disappointed.

(Note that I represent the continental European perspective, although I spent part of my life in England. Many romantic admirers of a mythical Celthood hereabouts.)
