A Night Out with Robert Burns : The Greatest Poems Paperback / softback

Edited by Andrew O'Hagan

Part of the Canons series

Description

The Scottish poet Robert Burns has been idolised and eulogised.

He has been sainted, painted, tarted-up and toasted.

He is famous as the author of 'Auld Lang Syne', and he has long been the patron saint of the heartsore and the hungover.

But what about the poems? Beneath the cult of Burns Nights and patriotic yawps, there is the work itself, among the purest and most truthful created in any age. This is a Burns collection like no other, introduced, arranged and contextualised by the award-winning novelist and essayist Andrew O'Hagan.

Above all, it is an accessible edition made for the pleasure of reading that brings Burns' timeless work to full, riotous, colourful life.
