About the Book

"The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner" by James Hogg is a complex novel that tells the story of two brothers, George and Robert Colwan. George, raised by his father, embraces a carefree life, while Robert, influenced by his mother and a radical religious sect, becomes obsessed with Calvinist beliefs. The brothers' lives intertwine in Edinburgh, where Robert stalks George, leading to his untimely death. The second part of the novel presents Robert's memoirs, revealing his descent into madness and his encounter with a mysterious companion named Gil-Martin, possibly a manifestation of his own delusions. Robert believes it is his divine mission to eliminate sinners, leading to further crimes and a loss of identity. Ultimately, Robert takes his own life.

About Author

James Hogg

James Hogg (1770 – 21 November 1835) was a Scottish poet, novelist, and essayist known for writing in both Scots and English. Born on a small farm near Ettrick, Scotland, Hogg worked as a shepherd and farmhand in his youth and was primarily self-educated through reading. He became friends with notable writers of his time, including Sir Walter Scott, and even wrote an unauthorized biography of Scott. Hogg gained recognition as the "Ettrick Shepherd," a nickname under which some of his works were published. His notable works include the novel "The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner," the poem "The Queen's Wake," and the collection of songs "Jacobite Relics." Hogg's writings were often inspired by his experiences as a shepherd and his love for Scottish culture. He died in 1835 and was buried in Ettrick Churchyard.
