James Macpherson (Scottish Gaelic: Seumas MacMhuirich) (1736 – 1796) was a Scottish writer, poet, literary collector and politician, known as the "translator" of the Ossian cycle of poems. In 1761 he published Fingal, an Ancient Epic Poem in Six Books, together with Several Other Poems composed by Ossian, the Son of Fingal, from the Gaelic Language. Temora followed in 1763, and a collected edition, The Works of Ossian, in 1765. The authenticity of these was immediately challenged by Irish historians. Macpherson never produced the originals that he claimed existed.
