Anecdotes of Scott

Hardcover

Book Description
James Hogg knew Sir Walter Scott well, and after Scott's death in 1832 he wrote an affectionate but frank account of their long friendship. John Gibson Lockhart, Scott's son-in-law and official biographer, declared himself to be filled with "utter disgust and loathing" at the "beastly and abominable things" within it. Hogg withdrew the manuscript from publication, but later arranged for the U.S. publication of an extensively revised version. Jill Rubenstein has produced a meticulous new edition which includes both versions. She provides a wealth of new information about these lively, readable, idiosyncratic, and disconcerting texts.

America and the World: Debating the New Shape of International Politics
James F. Hoge

March 2003
Textbook Paperback
·
 
Book Description
A comprehensive survey of the key debates that shape U.S. foreign policy today. The end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union ushered in a new era of international politics, one that people have been trying to get a handle on ever since. This collection is a record of the best attempts at that task over the last dozen years. It brings together many powerful and well-stocked minds—from Francis Fukuyama and Samuel P. Huntington to Fouad Ajami, Fareed Zakaria, and Robert Kaplan — all trying to figure out what forces are driving world events and how Americans should respond. What is more important, ideology, culture, or power? What lies ahead, order or chaos? What is democracy? How strong is the United States, and for what purposes should it use its strength? How vulnerable is it, and what must it...

The Spy
James Hogg
0748614176
Sept 2000
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Hogg's extremely rare periodical of 1810-11 shows him reacting to the writers, personalities and locales of Scotland's capital city after his move to Edinburgh from Ettrick and his career change from shepherd and farmer to professional author. His characteristically astute and idiosyncratic vision reveals a rather different city from that of Walter Scott and Francis Jeffrey, and his band of contributors from another audience for his work than the middle class Tories associated with the later Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine. The Spy includes early versions of some of Hogg's best-known poetry and prose besides a wealth of fascinating lesser-known material. This is the first edition of The Spy since the original edition of 1810-11 was published, and offers a carefully constructed text, full of annotation, notes on...

Review
"Ian Duncan's credentials as editor of the volume are undoubted: he is a leading scholar of Scottish Romanticism, already an experienced editor of Scott and Buchan (amongst others), and has played a strong part in the current revival of Hogg studies internationally." -- Susan Manning, University of Edinburgh
"For students of Hogg, of Scottish literature, of romanticism, and of the tale collection as a form, it counts as 'essential reading" -- Richard Maxwell, Valparaiso University

Book Description
Winter Evening Tales (1820; second edition 1821) was James Hogg's most successful work of prose fiction in his lifetime, as well as one of his best. It exhibits the most complex genesis of any of Hogg's works and is the outstanding example of a 'national' genre pioneered by Hogg--the...

Review
'Levin's book is clearly written, and she wears her learning lightly, using post-structuralist theory and the psychological and feminist writings of Jacques Lacan and Nancy J. Chodorow without descending into jargon. She succeeds in identifying and illuminating an interesting sub-genre of Romantic writing.' TLS 'Levin draws on contemporary literary theory but her approach is refreshingly text-based and her expression agreeably lucid.' MODERN LANGUAGE REVIEW 'Levin writes with particular subtlety... An important contribution to the study of genre and Romantic prose literature.' STUDIES IN HOGG AND HIS WORLD

The Romantic Art of Confession is about works specifically entitled 'confessions' written during the Romantic period in Britain and France: Thomas De Quincey's...

Review
"An exemplary edition in the sense that it amply fulfills the need for a text in an area where textual exploration/discovery is/has moved rapidly of late. Pittock is the expert in the field... I recommend it without hesitation." -- Jeremy Black, University of Exeter

Book Description
James Hogg's Jacobite Relics--originally commissioned by the Highland Society of London in 1817--is an important addition to The Collected Works of James Hogg. It created a canon for the Jacobite song which had an enormous influence on subsequent collections, and was of great importance in defining the relationship between the Scottish song tradition and its Romantic editors and collectors. From the first publication of the Relics in 1819, there has been speculation about how many of them were authored or...
