Listing Detail Tabs

James Hogg's "The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner" is a Scottish classic, a quintessentially Gothic tale of psychological horror, and a relentless attack on Calvinist dogma.

The "Penguin Classics" edition is edited with an introduction and notes by Karl Miller. It also contains two of Hogg's most interesting stories, "Marion's Jock" and "John Gray o' Middleholm".

Robert Wringham's family is composed of a dissolute father and brother, a pious mother, and a rival father in the person of a fanatical Calvinist minister. He comes to believe that he is one of the elect, predestined to be saved, while others are damned. Sure of his freedom from the dictates of morality, he embarks on a series of crimes in the company of a new friend Gil-Martin, a man of many likenesses who can be mistaken for Robert, and who explains that they are as one in the holy work of purifying the world. But who is Gil-Martin? And what does he truly desire? The Gothic double or doppelganger is nowhere more powerfully imagined than in "Confessions of a Justified Sinner", once called 'the greatest novel of Scotland'.
