Most widely held works by James Hogg
The private memoirs and confessions of a justified sinner, written by himself, with a detail of curious traditionary facts and other evidence by the editor by James Hogg( Book )

268 editions published between 1824 and 2019 in 5 languages and held by 3,474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This now-famous book was given a hostile reception when it first appeared in 1824. It was not reprinted until the late 1830s, when a heavily bowdlerised version was included in a posthumous edition of Hogg's collected Tales and Sketches published by Blackie & Son of Glasgow. Thereafter Confessions of a Justified Sinner attracted little interest until the 1890s, when the unbowdlerised text was printed for the first time since the 1820s. However, the current high reputation of Hogg's novel did not fully begin to establish itself until 1947, when a warmly enthusiastic Introduction by Andre Gide appeared in a new edition of the unbowdlerised text."--BOOK JACKET
Queen Hynde by James Hogg( )

23 editions published between 1825 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 2,087 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
A series of lay sermons on good principles and good breeding by James Hogg( )

15 editions published between 1834 and 2012 in English and held by 1,782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lay Sermons offers, playfully, a series of lay sermons on good principles and good breeding: the very last thing that one would expect to come from the pen of the famous Ettrick Shepherd of Blackwood's. But a significant part of the joke is that the Shepherd, most unexpectedly, provides lay sermons that combine into a series of wise meditations on life and on literature. This important text by a major Scottish writer has long been neglected and undervalued, partly because it has not been easily accessible. However, recent critics such as Robert Kiely, David Groves and Silvia Mergenthal have pointed to the interest and influence of Hogg's Lay Sermons; and this new edition by Gillian Hughes will make the book readily available for the first time since the 1830s
Tales of the Wars of Montrose by James Hogg( )

13 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and held by 1,622 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
Confessions of a justified sinner : written by himself by James Hogg( )

2 editions published between 1824 and 2009 in English and held by 1,222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In James Hogg 1824 novel Confessions of a Justified Sinner, a young man named Robert Wringhim, or sometimes Wringham, encounters a shape-shifting devil. Robert is told that he is one of a small group of people predestined for salvation, and this doppelganger demon convinces him to commit murder and other crimes. Part Gothic novel, part case study in psychology, this is a probing quest into a world of angels and demons, predestiny and fanaticism
The Queen's wake : a legendary poem by James Hogg( Book )

84 editions published between 1813 and 2016 in English and German and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When The Queen's Wake was published in 1813 it proved an unexpected popular success, placing Hogg for a while alongside Byron and Scott as one of the most admired British poets of that time. Over the next six years Hogg was encouraged by major players in the Edinburgh book trade to make substantial revisions, to make the poem even more attractive and saleable. The fifth edition (1819) is an enhanced and carefully polished version from the now established and respected poet. It is markedly different from the edgy, powerful and unsettling first version of The Queen's Wake, which was the work of an impecunious and marginalised outsider."

29 editions published between 1831 and 2016 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Hogg's Songs by the Ettrick Shepherd appeared in 1831 and presented his public with 'a pocket volume' of his best and most popular songs. It contains 113 songs spanning the whole of Hogg's career as shepherd and professional writer, from his 'first' song, 'Donald MacDonald', created around 1803, to songs that had only just appeared in print.This volume is the first scholarly edition of the collection since its original appearance. It includes an Introduction, giving an account of the importance to Hogg of songs and singing across his creative life and detailed notes to each of the songs Hogg presents. The volume is intended to be used alongside James Hogg's Contributions to Musical Collections and Miscellaneous Songs which contains musical copies of the songs, taken directly from the collections to which Hogg refers in Songs by the Ettrick Shepherd. As such it provides the full textual and musical contexts of these songs as Hogg's public would have known and enjoyed them.--Amazon.com

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 2016 in English and held by 253 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
