The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner (1824)

A contemporary of Wordsworth and Coleridge, the highland poet and novelist is now best remembered for this slice of Scottish gothic, in which an aristocrat is driven to murder by a mysterious doppelganger. A huge influence on another Scottish horror classic, R.L Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
