Abstract
This article looks at the evidence for Ossianic influence on the young Tiec k, focusing in particular on his contribution to Rabach's Gothic novel, "Di e eiserne Maske", and the two unpublished verse epics, "Iwona" and "Gesang des Barden Congal". "Iwona" is demonstrably very close in plot and names of characters to "Die eiserne Maske", one of several reasons given for ascrib ing it to Tieck. It is also clos to "Gesang des Barden Congal", with which, as an altogether more substantial piece of work and one hitherto ignored b y critics, much of the essay concerns itself.
