Overview

A new edition of the “greatest novel of Scotland”

The Romantic notion of the divided self is nowhere more powerfully conceived than in James Hogg’s masterpiece, The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner. An account of a man haunted by the Devil in the form of his own evil double, it precedes Dostoyevsky’s great dramas of sin, self-accusation, and damnation by half a century.
