If Freud had worn a kilt in the prescribed Highland manner he might
have had a very different attitude to genitals. Wilson In the Observer, 24 Aug.
From the lone shieling of the misty island Mountains divide
us, and the waste of seas Yet still the blood
is strong, the heart is Highland, And we in dreams
behold the Hebrides! Fair these broad
meads, these hoary woods are grand; But we are exiles
from our fathers' land. John Galt 'Canadian Boat Song', a translation from the Gaelic
attributed to Galt,
published in Blackwood's Magazine, Sep. It has also been
attributed to Walter Scott.
In a coign of the cliff between lowland and highland, At the sea-down's
edge between windward and lee, Walled round with
rocks as an inland island, The ghost of a
garden fronts the sea. Algernon Charles Swinburne Poems and Ballads (2nd edn),'A Forsaken Garden'.
Behold her, single in the field, Yon solitary
Highland Lass! Reaping and singing
by herself; Stop here, or
gently pass! William Wordsworth ^5 'The Solitary Reaper', l.1^4 (published1807).
