Fiction. Classics. Gothic. Religion & Spirituality. Published anonymously in 1824 in Scotland, this gothic psychological tale will leave readers grasping for the truth. Weaving themes of good versus evil, psychosis, mystery, and religious extremism all wrapped in metafiction, Hogg's masterpiece reads like it could have been written today.
