The Celtic Magazine, Vol. 1, No. 3, January 1876        A Monthly Periodical Devoted to the Literature, History,

 

MR ARNOLD in that handsome, but slightly ambiguous admission of his,

that the Celts in their intellectual capacity come very near the secret

of nature and of natural magic, does not seem to imply more in reality

than that they have a subtler sense of certain natural affinities than

their Anglo-Saxon brethren have; that they apprehend more surely when,

where, and how the truest impress of physical nature occurs on the

percipient faculties of the soul, than men of a more phlegmatic

constitution do; and that they can draw from such intuitions of their

own a sort of inspiration, or second-sight of nature, comparable to

prophecy, which gives their highest poetic utterance a rapt

enthusiasm--and the accuracy of this estimate need not be disputed, but,

so far as Ossian is concerned, it must be considerably extended.
