The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner Written By Himself with a Detail of Curious Traditionary Facts and Other Evidence By the Editor. Set chiefly in strife-ridden 18th. century Scotland, this book tells the story of a young man whose debased Calvinism leaves him vulnerable to the insidious logic of a mysteriously diabolic stranger. He then commits a series of heinous but allegedly “justified” crimes. Hogg’s novel first published in 1824, anticipates work by Poe, Hawthorne and Melville.
