Description:
James Hogg's Confessions of a Justified Sinner (1824) has been called 'the greatest novel of Scotland'. Robert Wringhim's family is composed of a 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. Who or what is this double? Is he the Devil? The divided self that appears in the literature of Romanticism is nowhere more powerfully imagined. This new edition has an introduction by Karl Miller, which discusses the presence in the novel of the life and times of James Hogg. It also contains two of Hogg's most interesting stories, Marion's Jock and John Gray o' Middleholm.
