A Burns Miscellany
Recognised internationally as a poet of wide range and tone, Burns's poems, songs, and letters - his enormous legacy to Scotland - came from the heart, but were crafted with a sure-footed and keen intelligence. Their power, poignancy, humour and beauty endure in our own day. As a result of his encounters with its landscape, folklore and people, Burns unconsciously helped to fashion what became the modern image of Scotland.
To mark Homecoming Scotland 2009, the National Library of Scotland, National Museums Scotland, and the National Galleries of Scotland have collaborated to highlight some of the treasures in their care. Shown here are select and iconic examples from the national collections including paintings, objects, books and manuscripts relating to Robert Burns's life, work and heritage.
