This collection is comprised of ten of Hogg's poems which, in very
different ways, explore the visionary and supernatural, and the
writer's portrayal of them - echoing the subject and title of
Shakespeare's famous play. Included among the poems are: 'The
Pilgrims of the Sun', which seeks to demonstrate Hogg's command not
only of his native Scottish tradition of poetry but also of the
English tradition of Milton and Pope; the weirdly brilliant 'Connel
of Dee'; 'The Gyre Caryl' in which Hogg recounts the birth of
Heavenly Grace and the departure of the fairies from Scotland; and
'Verses Addressed to the Right Honourable Lady Anne Scott of
Buccleuch'. Taken together the ten poems of Midsummer Night Dreams
and Related Poems substantiate Hogg's vaunted claim to be 'King o'
the mountain and fairy school' of poetry.
