Queen Hynde by James Hogg( )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in English and held by 1,878 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

The mountain bard by James Hogg( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 118 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

The author and the shepherd : the paratextual self-representations of James Hogg (1807-1835) by Stuart O'Donnell( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Author and the Shepherd: The Paratextual Self-Representations of James Hogg (1807-1835) This project establishes a literary-cultural trajectory in the career of Scottish poet and author James Hogg (1770-1835) through the close reading of his self-representational paratextual material. It argues that these paratexts played an integral part in Hogg's writing career and, as such, should be considered among his most important works. Previous critics have drawn attention to Hogg's paratextual self-representations; this project, however, singles them out for comprehensive analysis as literary texts in their own right, comparing and contrasting how Hogg's use of such material differed from other writers of his period, as well as how his use of it changed and developed as his career progressed. Their wider cultural significance is also considered. Hogg not only used paratextual material to position himself strategically in his literary world but also to question, challenge and undermine some of the dominant socio-cultural paradigms and hierarchies of the early-nineteenth century, not least the role and position of 'peasant poets' (such as himself) in society. Hogg utilised self-representational paratextual material throughout his literary career. Unlike other major writers of the period Hogg, a self-taught shepherd, had to justify and explain his position in society as 'an author' through these pseudo-autobiographical paratexts, which he attached to most of his works (in such forms as memoirs, introductions, dedications, notes and footnotes, and introductory paragraphs to stories). Via these liminal devices he created and propagated his authorial persona of 'The Ettrick Shepherd', whose main function was to draw attention to Hogg's preeminent place in the traditional world, and to his status as a 'peasant poet'. It was on the basis of this position that he argued for his place in the Scottish literary world of the early-nineteenth century and, ultimately, in literary history. His paratextual self-representations are thus a crucial element in his literary career. Drawing on Gerard Genette's description of 'the paratext', the authorial theories of Roland Barthes and Michel Foucault (along with more recent authorial criticism), as well as autobiographical theory, this project traces Hogg's changing use of self-representational paratexts throughout his career, from his first major work The Mountain Bard (1807) to his final book of stories Tales of the Wars of Montrose (1835). By reading Hogg's paratexts closely, this project presents a unique view - from the inside out - of the specific literary world into which Hogg attempted to position himself as an author
