The Queen's wake : a legendary poem by James Hogg( Book )

"Thus the poem exists in significantly different authorial versions, each reflecting Hogg's circumstances at the time. In recent years a consensus has emerged that in cases of this kind the modern reader is best served by having access to editions of both versions. The Stirling/ South Carolina Research Edition of The Queen's Wake therefore presents both the first and fifth edition of the poem."--Jacket

Mador of the moor by James Hogg( Book )

16 editions published between 1816 and 2009 in English and German and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scottish popular tradition includes a group of stories about a King who has adventures--amorous and otherwise--as he wanders in disguise among his people. Many of these stories focus on James V and in Walter Scott's long narrative poem The Lady of the Lake (1810) the King encounters a mysterious lady while he is wandering alone and unrecognised in the Highlands. At first sight Scott's heroine seems to be a simple country girl, but she turns out to be a daughter of the great aristocratic house of Douglas, living for the time being in a rural exile. Scott's romantic and aristocratic version of the old 'wandering King' stories was hugely popular in its day, but Hogg subverts and questions this tale in Mador of the Moor (1816). The name 'Mador' suggests 'made o'er', 'made over', and Mador of the Moor is in effect a makeover of The Lady of the Lake. Hogg's poem, like Scott's, tells how a deer-hunt in the Highlands leads a disguised King of Scots into a love-adventure with a young woman. However Hogg's heroine, Ila Moore, is not a chaste aristocrat but a girl of low social standing who is made pregnant by the wandering King. Ila's inherent resourcefulness and strength of character suggest that a peasant girl pregnant out of wedlock can be a heroine fully worthy of respect, and Mador (rejected as shocking and ridiculous by its original readership), now re- emerges as a flowing and immensely readable narrative that eloquently challenges the deeply-ingrained class and gender prejudices of Hogg's society. --Columbia University Press
A queer book by James Hogg( Book )

17 editions published between 1832 and 2007 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Witty, humorous and comical as the title implies, the eccentric nature of many of the poems collected here nevertheless belies the often serious historical and moral issues contained within. Including many of Hogg's best-known longer pieces, this is the first edition of A Queer Book to be published since 1832 - although the similarity between the two editions ends at the poems' running order. While the text for the earlier version was substantially reworked by the publisher to smooth out Hogg's use of Scots, this volume brings together manuscripts from all over the world to provide material as near to his final copy as possible. The result is a vibrant collection including many poems which have never been studied critically before. A thorough introduction to the best of Hogg's poetry

The shepherd's calendar by James Hogg( Book )

10 editions published between 1829 and 2002 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Never before published as Hogg originally intended, this new edition of The Shepherd's Calendar reaffirms his collection of thirteen rural tales and anecdotes as a major landmark in the history of Scottish literature. Capturing the flavour and style of Border story-telling, they gradually build into a coherent yet intriguing portrait of pastoral life, in which fact blurs with faerie and where narrative authority is increasingly called into question
The three perils of woman, or, Love, leasing, and jealousy : a series of domestic Scottish tales by James Hogg( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Three Perils of Woman is essentially a combination of two stories on similar themes, one set in the Highlands following the Battle of Culloden and the other in Hogg's Edinburgh. Daring in its narrative technique, its first readers were confused by the novel's juxtaposition of the comic and the horrific as Hogg explored the relationship between fictional life, as portrayed in, say, the works of Walter Scott, and the realities of nineteenth-century Scotland. Daring in its subject matter, they were also shocked by its treatment of such delicate matters as prostitution and venereal disease. Last printed in any form in the 1820s, this new edition reveals the exceptional quality of The Three Perils of Woman and puts it squarely back into the mainstream of Scottish literature
Queen Hynde by James Hogg( Book )

13 editions published between 1825 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Queen Hynde (1824) is James Hogg's most ambitious poem. Concelved as an epic, it takes as its starting point the myth of Scottish national origins to be found in James Macpherson's Ossian poems. However, Hogg's epic radically modifies the melancholy solemnities and heroic paganism of Macpherson's Ossianic narratives. Capable of being utterly hilarious, especially when Wicked Wene is on stage, Queen Hynde is Ossian with jokes. In and through its hilarity, however, Hogg's epic has serious purposes in mind. Its picture of the ancient Scottish past has much in common with stories of King Arthur and Camelot. In addition, Hogg's poem offers a Christianised version of Macpherson's heroic myth of the roots of the Scottish nation. St. Columba, a key figure in the conversion of Scotland to Christianity, is one of the central characters in Hogg's recasting of the Ossianic material; and Queen Hynde aspires to emulate Paradise Lost as a Christian epic. It does so by valorising Columba's values of love and forgiveness, as they replace the values of an old pagan would of heroic violence

Tales of the Wars of Montrose by James Hogg( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Tales of the Wars of Montrose Hogg continues the examination of Scotland's past he began in The Brownie of Bodsbeck, and continued in The Three Perils of Woman and Confessions of a Justified Sinner; in doing so he also reflects upon the attempts of Scott and Galt to deal with Scottish history. Using different narrators and different moods in each of the five tales that compose the work Hogg leads the reader into (and eventually out of) a period of anarchy and confusion in his native country. This new edition is the first to reflect Hogg's true intentions for the work, being formed on his own plan and following the text of his surviving manuscripts. The work thus revealed is a major achievement of final years, and a splendid portrait of Scottish society in a state of civil war

The mountain bard by James Hogg( Book )

27 editions published between 1807 and 2009 in English and Scots and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hogg grew up in rural Ettrick Forest in a notable family of tradition-bearers, and in his first major poetry collection The Mountain Bard of 1807 he claims his rightful position at the centre of that culture. Whereas Scott collected the Minstrelsy of the Scottish Border Hogg was the sole author of The Mountain Bard. He learned to negotiate the erudite print culture of Edinburgh with the literary ballad, sometimes helped and sometimes hindered by his powerful friend, shifting the shape of his earlier manuscript and periodical poems accordingly. Then in 1821, when he was an established literary man, he published a revised edition in keeping with his new professional status as Author of The Queen's Wake." "The present edition prints together, for the first time, the full 1807 collection, the surviving pre-1807 versions of poems included in The Mountain Bard, and the complete 1821 version. The Introduction (besides giving a full history of this complex, changing work) places it firmly within the eighteenth-century antiquarian projects of ballad-collecting and the intellectual currents of Romanticism, in particular the literary vogue for the ballad shown in works such as Lyrical Ballads (1798) by Wordsworth and Coleridge."--Jacket
