Charlotte Brooke

  • [On the Irish language:] It is really astonishing of what various and comprehensive powers this neglected language is possessed. In the pathetic it breathes the most beautiful and affecting simplicity; and in the bolder species of composition it is distinguished by a freedom of expression, a sublime dignity, and rapid energy, which it is scarcely possible for any translation fully to convey.

Charlotte Brooke, Irish writer

(1740 - 1793)
