  Hogg, William, [note] the author of several Latin versions of English poems, was a native of Gowry in Perthshire. He came in quest of fortune to London, but met only with misery. Dr. Birch [note] says, that he died of want in the street. His principal translations are, Paraphrasis Poëtica in tria Johannis Miltonis viri clarissimi Poemata, viz. Paradisum Amissum, Paradisum recuperation, et Samsonum Agonistem, London, 1690. 8vo. and Rotterdam,
POETS — SUPPLEMENT.133
1699. Liber Primus Principis Arcturi (à Rich. Blackmore, Eq.-Aur.) Latinè red. 1706. Parephrasis in Jobum Poetica, 1682. Satyra Sacra sive Paraphrasis in Ecclesiasten Poetica. Part of his sacred poetry is reprinted in the Poetarum Scotorum Musæ Sacræ. The notorious Lauder [note] availed himself of Hogg's version of Milton, in his infamous attempt against the reputation of Paradise Lost.
