Not reprinted since the 1820s, this book is essentially two stories, one set in highland Scotland after the Battle of Culloden; the second in Hogg's Edinburgh. The book takes as its themes the nature of fiction, and the fictional view of life portrayed in the work of Walter Scott and John Wilson, and the realities of 19th century Scotland. The three perils are allegedly "love, leasing (lying) and jealousy" highlighting women's place in 19th century society.This volume is part of the Stirling edition of the complete works of James Hogg. After 100 years of relative obscurity, James Hogg (1770-1835) is now considered to be one of Scotland's major writers. This edition of his works results from 15 years of academic research into Hogg's first manuscripts, proofs and early editions. Each volume includes a full introduction, explanatory notes and commentary.
