Mador of the Moor: a Poem
Special Collections – Hogg Collection PR4791 M3 1816
Edinburgh: William Blackwood
Another Hogg title that Special Collections lacked was Mador of the Moor, an historical romance in five cantos which was published in 1816 by William Blackwood. Most of this love-story about a farmer’s daughter being wooed by the King of Scotland (in disguise) was written by Hogg in 1813 when he was staying at Kinnaird House, the home of his friend Eliza Izett, near Dunkeld, Perthshire. Somewhat unfairly, it has been compared to Scott’s outpourings, deemed by some as a ‘second-hand Lady of the Lake’. This particular copy was once in the library of Ian Jack (b.1945), the Scottish journalist and editor.
