The Romantic notion of the divided self is nowhere more powerfully conceived than in James Hogg’s masterpiece, The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner<./I>. An account of a man haunted by the Devil in the form of his own evil double, it precedes Dostoyevsky’s great dramas of sin, self-accusation, and damnation by half a century.
