Excerpt from The Gentle Shepherd: A Pastoral Comedy

Ancient Scott's/z Poems, 1786.undying verse. It is no extenuation of his error, though it diminishes our surprise at his confidence, that he wrote in 1786, when the genius of Burns had hardly dawned upon the world, to show what the language of Ramsay was capable of.

The Gentle Shepherd being a living classic, still largely read and enjoyed, it appeared to the present Editor a not unworthy task to undertake the production of an edition regarding which he can honestly say that he has used every effort to make it worthy of the high estimation in which he holds it. Its present form has been attained through a considerable process of devel opment; its germ being the eclogue Fatie and Roger, which first appeared in 1718, and now forms Scene I. Then followed, in i7zi, the duet, Fatie and Peggy, now Song XI.; which was succeeded in 1723 by Jenny and Meggy, now Scene II., and headed Peggy and Jenny. Although written at considerable intervals, a unity of design runs through the two larger fragments, as if a dim outline of the whole were con ceived at the beginning; for the characters of the second part are projected in the first, and three of those of after scenes appear in the background of the second making altogether seven of the twelve dramaz'zlrperwme of the play. The two chief pieces of scenery, too, are described, and when the whole comes to be put together no alteration is necessary to make them fit in the most natural way into the additional framework.
