Hogg, James (17821835)

Hogg, James, a Scottish poet, born in Ettrick; had little or no schooling; was bred a shepherd; took to rhyming; fell in with Sir Walter Scott, whom he assisted with his “Border Minstrelsy”; rented a farm, and first came into notice by the publication of his poem, the “Queen's Wake”; he wrote in prose as well as poetry, with humour as well as no little graphic power; “was,” says Carlyle, “a little red-skinned stiff sack of a body, with two little blue or grey eyes that sparkled, if not with thought, yet with animation; was a real product of nature” (17821835).
