Description

This selection gives equal weight to the two aspects of Robert Burns’s reputation, as a lyricist and as a much-loved Scottish poet. Placing works in probable order of composition, it includes lyrics to his most well known songs, such as the nostalgic Auld Lang Syne, the romantic A Red, Red Rose, and the patriotic Scots What Hae. As a poet, Burns wrote with deceptive simplicity and imaginative sympathy, and demonstrated enormous range – from comic dramatic monologues such as Holy Willie’s Prayer, which mocks hypocrisy, to narratives including the celebrated Tam O’ Shanter, about the ghostly visions of a drunk.
