Product Overview

From ragged cowherd to famous author, James Hogg''s story is one of extraordinary social and professional transition. He was a man of contradictions: a partisan Tory with Radical friends; an upholder of oral tradition who eagerly embraced every new development in early nineteenth-century print culture; a man who wrote against biographical intrusions yet borrowed heavily from his life as an Ettrick Shepherd. Hogg''s formidable intelligence and drive were seldom acknowledged by his contemporaries, and his most challenging work was dismissed, but in this richly researched biography, the full scope of his life and talent is finally recognized.
