£5.99

The complete poems and songs of Robert Burns is a collection of poetical works, the scope of which is as varied as it is entertaining. Burns, the "ploughman poet," could write as easily about politics, history, Scottish nationalism, hatred for pomposity and social disadvantage, and the excitement of having illicit love affairs (of which he had many) as he could about nature and an admiration of beauty.

This book contains the complete poems and songs of this remarkable man, with an introduction to and chronology of his life, a glossary of Scots words and indexes of title and first lines.

Robert Burns (25 January 1759 – 21 July 1796) also known familiarly as Rabbie Burns and the National Bard was a Scottish poet and lyricist. He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland and is celebrated worldwide. He is the best known of the poets who have written in the Scots language, although much of his writing is in English and a light Scots dialect, accessible to an audience beyond Scotland.
