PRIVATE MEMOIRS AND CONFESSIONS OF A JUSTIFIED SINNER

JAMES HOGG    Book Number: 24276    Product format: Paperback

With an Introduction and Notes by David Blair, University of Kent at Canterbury. In the early years of the 18th century, Scotland is torn by religious and political strife. Hogg's sinner, justified by his Calvinist conviction that his own salvation is pre-ordained, is suspected of involvement in a series of bizarre and hideous crimes. A century later his memoirs reveal the extraordinary, macabre truth. The tale is chilling for its astute psychological accuracy as it illustrates, with power and economy, the dire effect of self-righteous bigotry on a fanatical character. 224 pages, paperback.
