The Scottish Nation

FINLAY, JOHN, a minor poet, born in Glasgow in 1782, in 1802 published ‘Wallace, or the Vale of Ellerslie, with other Poems,’ 12mo, 2d edit. 1804, 8vo. In 1808 he brought out his ‘Scottish Historical and Romantic Ballads, chiefly Ancient, with Explanatory Notes and a Glossary; to which are prefixed some remarks on the early state of Romantic Composition in Scotland.’ These productions display much acquaintance with the literary antiquities of the middle ages. He died December 8, 1810, aged twenty-eight.
