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 )

249 editions published between 1824 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 2,923 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."--Jacket
The Queen's wake : a legendary poem by James Hogg( Book )

83 editions published between 1813 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 745 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."

Winter evening tales : collected among the cottagers in the south of Scotland by James Hogg( Book )

39 editions published between 1820 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Winter Evening Tales (1820; second edition 1821) was James Hogg's most successful work of prose fiction in his lifetime. Its experimental medley of novellas, tales, poems and sketches posed a lively alternative to the dominant form of the historical novel established by Walter Scott. The collection includes terse masterpieces of mystery and the uncanny, virtuoso improvisations on folktale themes, and two brilliant autobiographical novellas, The Renowned Adventures of Basil Lee and Love Adventures of Mr George Cochrane. This paperback edition takes account of newly-discovered information about An Old Soldier's Tale and The Long Pack. A critical introduction, explanatory notes, reading list and Hogg chronology are provided to assist the reader in appreciating Hogg's entertaining and challenging tale collection to the full."

The three perils of woman, or, Love, leasing, and jealousy : a series of domestic Scottish tales by James Hogg( Book )

25 editions published between 1823 and 2002 in English and held by 331 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
A queer book by James Hogg( Book )

17 editions published between 1832 and 2007 in English and held by 312 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 )

22 editions published between 1829 and 2002 in English and held by 305 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
Confessions of a justified sinner by James Hogg( Book )

25 editions published between 1824 and 2015 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents a novel about religious fanaticism, murder, and madness featuring Robert Wringham, a fanatic who believes he is free from the norms of morality, and together with his friend, set about to settle scores with old enemies

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

19 editions published between 1835 and 2002 in English and held by 244 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 works of the Ettrick Shepherd; tales & sketches by James Hogg( Book )

43 editions published between 1865 and 1992 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A series of lay sermons on good principles and good breeding by James Hogg( Book )

13 editions published between 1834 and 1997 in English and held by 234 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
