Bagger, Carl Uddrag fra Udvalgte Skrifter

Svoger: Fr. Fiedler, som havde opfordret Bagger til at oversætte Byron . . . »Jeg elsker Byrons Pegen hen mod Nord« kan hentyde til Vers som flg. fra »English Bards and Scotch Reviewers« (V. 941 ff.): »Scotland! still proudly claim thy native Bard / And be thy praise his first, his best reward! / Yet not with thee alone his name should live, / But own the vast renown a world can give; / Be known, perchance, when Albion is no more, / And tell the tale of what she was before; / To future times her faded fame recall, / And save her glory, though his country fall.«
