Description - The Jacobite Relics of Scotland by James Hogg
Originally commissioned by the highland Society of London in 1817, "Jacobite Relics" created a canon for the Jacobite song which was of great importance in defining the relationship between the Scottish song tradition and its Romantic editors and collectors. The introduction to this first volume includes the crucial issue of Hogg's relationship to the Jacobite song tradition, and the place of the Relics within Hogg's career and personal context, facilitating further interpretations of Hogg's range of creative strategies. The book also provides annotation to communicate the context of the songs and Hogg's relationship to the textuality of the Jacobite culture.
