About the Author

Robert Burns was born on 25 January 1759 in the village of Alloway near Ayr. Famously considered Scotland's national bard, his birthday is celebrated across Scotland on that very day. Born into a family of farmers, his poetry was often composed as he worked in the fields. His most famous songs and poems include To a Mouse, Tam O' Shanter and Scots Wae Hae. His works were first gathered and published in Poems, Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect in 1786. He died on 21 July 1796 aged just thirty-seven.

Reviews

"O'Hagan makes the point about the universality and relevance of Burns with eloquence and economy. . . . Accessible, lightly glossed, and eruditely formatted. [There is] no better modern introduction to his work."
