Shakespeare.

The quotation is from The Sketchbook, Stratford on Avon, in which Irving recounts his literary pilgrimage to the Bard's birthplace, and in the process "reflects on the singular gift of the poet:"


"On returning to my inn, I could not but reflect on the singular gift
of the poet; to be able thus to spread the magic of his mind over the
very face of nature; to give to things and places a charm and
character not their own, and to turn this “working-day world” into
a perfect fairy land. He is indeed the true enchanter, whose spell
operates, not upon the senses, but upon the imagination and the
heart
."
