Abstract:

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.
