Meet the Author

George Gilfillan (30 January 1813 – 13 August 1878) was a Scottish author and poet. He was one of the spasmodic poets, and an editor and commentator of earlier British poetry. He was born at Comrie, Perthshire, where his father, the Rev. Samuel Gilfillan, the author of some theological works, was for many years minister of a Secession congregation. After an education at the University of Glasgow, in March 1836 he was ordained pastor of a Secession congregation in Dundee. He died, aged 65, having just finished a new life of Burns designed to accompany a new edition of the works of that poet.
