A Note on Walter Scott & Irish Literature


The eighteenth century Irish poet Charles Henry Wilson is little known, but in 1782 he produced the first printed translation from Irish to English, Poems Translated from the Irish Language into the English. Walter Scott’s extensive collection of rare and curious Irish material has received little scholarly attention to date, but it contains one of the only two surviving copies of this work.
