Burns : 'A Red, Red Rose' and Other Poems Paperback / softback

Part of the Pocket Poets series

Paperback / softback

Description

In his short life, Robert Burns forged for himself a reputation as a poet and songwriter that has never been eclipsed.

Today, more than 200 years after his death, his verse remains among the most popular in the world. Best known for his dialect lyrical verse on nature, love, patriotism and rural life, as well as for such well-loved songs as 'Auld Lang Syne' and 'Robert Bruce's March to Bannockburn' ('Scots Wha Hae'), he was equally as skilful with great lyrics on philosophical subjects.

Offering everything from simple ballads to great set pieces like 'Tam O'Shanter', this collection celebrates the work of the poor farmer-turned-exciseman who became, literally, the voice of an entire nation.
