Memoir of Burns

A non fiction book by

Written in 1832 but published only in 1836, after Hogg's death, Memoir of Burns was the culmination of Hogg's lifelong interest in Burns's poetry and life. Among the most neglected of his writings, this volume has never before been republished separately from the multi-volume edition of Burns for which it was written, Volumes 1-4 of the Hogg-Motherwell Works of Robert Burns. This is the first modern editorial treatment of the work.
*The only scholarly edition that documents Hogg's use of his sources
*Contains the comments Hogg made on individual Burns poems and songs in the annotations to the Works volumes
*Draws on hitherto-unused manuscript material to clarify the relation between Hogg and Motherwell in the editing of the Works.
