Altrive Tales was carefully prepared by Hogg in 1832 as the opening volume in a planned twelve-volume collected prose fiction series, intended as the culmination of his career as a storyteller. It opens with his own story of how a ragged servant-lad remade himself as a respected professional writer, the associate of Byron, Scott, Southey, Wordsworth and Galt. Hogg's frank and humorous 'Memoir of the Author's Life' is widely recognised as a classic of Romantic autobiography and an important record of early nineteenth-century Scottish culture.

Book Description EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2004. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Altrive Tales was carefully prepared by Hogg in 1832 as the opening volume in a planned twelve-volume collected prose fiction series, intended as the culmination of his career as a storyteller.

Frankly pleading guilty to the egotism of presenting his own output to the world as a literary classic Hogg engagingly confesses, I like to write about myself: in fact, there are few things which I like better [.] . The themes of the Memoir continue in the tales that follow. The Adventures of Captain John Lochy is a fast-paced historical fiction, the autobiography of a social outcast adrift in Scotland, Russia, the Netherlands, and Sweden. The Pongos (an early version of the Tarzan story) takes a look at Scottish involvement in the British empire in a comic parody of Enlightenment notions about the nature of man and of society. Marion s Jock is a virtuoso exercise in Scots and in Hogg s ability to communicate the peasant lifestyle of his native Scottish Borders. This new edition, thoughtfully introduced and extensively annotated, presents Altrive Tales as a major achievement by one of Scotland s finest storytellers. Seller Inventory # AA79780748618934
