Publisher:
Published Date: 1996
Categories: History
James Macpherson's Works of Ossian, claiming to be a translation from a Celtic original, appeared in 1762. It was denounced as a forgery almost at once, though many continued to believe in its authenticity. Its influence was profound, fostering the notion of an ancient Celtic culture antedating and contrasting with the dominant Saxon and European traditions. For the Romantics, with their cult of spontaneity, the idea of a primitive, bardic utterance had particular relevance. We are reproducing Fingal on its own from an edition of Macpherson's Ossian of the Romantic period, together with Hugh Blair's Critical Dissertation on the Poems of Ossian, first published in 1765 and commonly published with Ossian. Blair encouraged Macpherson, and as professor of Rhetoric and Belles-Lettres at Edinburgh University put his weight behind the work's authenticity.

Carl Sandburg Poem
House
 by Carl Sandburg

TWO Swede families live downstairs and an Irish policeman upstairs, and an old soldier, Uncle Joe.
Two Swede boys go upstairs and see Joe. His wife is dead, his only son is dead, and his two daughters in Missouri and Texas don't want him around.
The boys and Uncle Joe crack walnuts with a hammer on the bottom of a flatiron while the January wind howls and the zero air weaves laces on the window glass.
Joe tells the Swede boys all about Chickamauga and Chattanooga, how the Union soldiers crept in rain somewhere a dark night and ran forward and killed many Rebels, took flags, held a hill, and won a victory told about in the histories in school.
Joe takes a piece of carpenter's chalk, draws lines on the floor and piles stove wood to show where six regiments were slaughtered climbing a slope.
'Here they went' and 'Here they went,' says Joe, and the January wind howls and the zero air weaves laces on the window glass.
The two Swede boys go downstairs with a big blur of guns, men, and hills in their heads. They eat herring and potatoes and tell the family war is a wonder and soldiers are a wonder.
One breaks out with a cry at supper: I wish we had a war now and I could be a soldier.
