George Gilfillan

Gilfillan, George (1813–1878). Poet and critic, son of a dissenting minister at Comrie, Perthshire, studied at Glasgow University, and was ordained minister of a church in Dundee. He was a voluminous author. Among his writings are Gallery of Literary Portraits, and a Series of British Poets with introductions and notes in 48 vols. He also wrote Lives of Burns, Scott, and others, and Night (1867), a poem in nine books. His style was somewhat turgid, and his criticism rather sympathetic than profound.
