romanticism teaching james macpherson ossian pedagogy textual studies
As part of this ongoing series on Teaching Romanticism we will consider the ways in which we lecture on and discuss individual authors, whether during author-specific modules or broader period surveys. As our contributors here can attest, Macpherson’s Ossianic works and the Ossian controversy continue to excite tutor and tutee alike. Teaching the Fragments in particular lights up well-worn if vital areas of concern, including the social and literary implications of the restructuring of Britain in the eighteenth century, and the intertwined relationship between poetry and history, creativity and historiography, more broadly.
