Education was used as a tool for oppression for the majority of South Africans. Transformation. What has changed? What is changing in the education system to engender a more egalitarian society? Are private schools part of the solution to the "South African condition" - the country's past? Is reality thinly veiled in this short story? Take a look, through the lens of Langa's experiences at his private school.
In this gripping tale of murder, madness, and demonic possession, the son of a radical Calvinist minister takes off on a crime spree in eighteenth-century Scotland. Robert Wringhim attributes his misdeeds to the influence of a sinister companion, Gil-Martin - but it remains to be seen whether Gil-Martin really exists. Published anonymously in 1824, this ahead-of-its-time novel offers a haunting exploration of religious fanaticism and the power of evil. Scottish poet and novelist James Hogg (1770-1835) overcame his lowly birth and lack of education to become one of the most admired writers of his day.

The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner is Hogg's best-known and most highly acclaimed work.
