Robert Fergusson (1750–1774)

Fergusson, Robert. A Scotch poet; born in Edinburgh, Sept. 5, 1750; died there, Oct. 16, 1774. He had a precocious and versatile poetical genius, but of the kind nearly allied to madness; and after publishing ‘Poems’ (1773), a collection of many gems, he was carried to an insane asylum.
