About the Author

James Hogg was a Scottish poet, novelist and essayist who wrote in both Scots and English. He is best known for his novel The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner.

The late Douglas S. Mack was formerly Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Stirling.


It perhaps goes without saying that the Stirling / South Carolina Research Edition of the works of Hogg has been a triumph… In short, there cannot be the slightest doubt that this volume will be an essential and entirely worthy addition to a superb publishing venture.
- Professor John Barrell, University of York
The Stirling/South Carolina edition of The Queen's Wake is a remarkable piece of scholarship ... The illustrations and accompanying article adds to the richness and the multifaceted nature of this edition, which offers students and literary scholars an assortment of material through which to approach the complexity of Hogg's marvellous poem.
- Scotia
This is sure to delight the international academic community, as well as appeal to the poetry-reading public… this book will fill a much-needed gap, and allow the continued appreciation of Hogg's work as much more than merely the Ettrick Shepherd
- Dr Valentina Bold, University of Glasgow
