To Miss Hunt, July 7, 1792 "Can you find anything equal to his [Ossian"s] descriptions of nature; his address to the Sun in Carthos, that to the Moon in Darthula, and the last hymn? Surely in the joy of grief and in night scenes there is nothing equal to him. I would rather read the description of one of his ghosts than of all Homer"s gods. One of my greatest reasons for admiring him is that his heroes are so good [italics]."
