Most widely held works by Gillian Hughes
A series of lay sermons on good principles and good breeding by James Hogg( )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,679 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( )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and held by 1,621 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
James Hogg : a life by Gillian Hughes( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From ragged boy cowherd to famous author, James Hogg's life-story is one of extraordinary transitions both socially and professionally. Precariously balancing his Ettrick world and his Edinburgh world, he sometimes seemed at home in both of them and sometimes in neither. He was a man of apparent contradictions: a partisan Tory with Radical friends; an upholder of oral tradition who eagerly embraced every new development in early nineteenth-century print culture; a man who wrote against biographical intrusions yet in his own-life writing, stories and poems emphasised his persona and origins as the Ettrick Shepherd." "In his own lifetime Hogg was best-known as a heaven-inspired and naive Scottish rustic who featured as the boozing buffoon of Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine. His formidable intelligence and drive were seldom acknowledged by his contemporaries, and his most challenging work was disliked rather than praised for disturbing conventional readerly preconceptions." "In his own Memoir this notoriously open-hearted man was curiously reticent about certain passages in his life, thus providing a template for subsequent biographers. Drawing extensively on Hogg's correspondence and other documentary material, this chronological biography gives due weight to the neglected parts of Hogg's story for the first time."--Jacket

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Stevenson's tale of father - son confrontation, the father, Adam Weir, is modelled on Lord Braxfield, the eighteenth-century 'hanging judge'. Weir, a 'risen man' who has married a wealthy but weak woman, is both feared and respected, not least by his own son, Archie. At a public hanging, Archie speaks out against capital punishment, knowing that it was his own father who sentenced the man. He is banished to their estate at Hermiston outside Edinburgh, where he meets and falls in love with Christina Elliot, the daughter of the local laird. She is his social inferior, however, and Archie is afraid to tell his father of their attachment. But then Frank Innes arrives on the scene, a friend who sparks off events which will lead to Archie's death
