0 Reviews
Responding to the resurgence of interest in the Scottish working-class writer James Hogg, Alker and Nelson offer the first edited collection devoted to a critical examination of his writings. The essays explore the varied and experimental works of Hogg to establish that they deserve a central place in Romantic studies and to demonstrate that they anticipate and address many recent concerns voiced in contemporary discussions of literature.
