Burns Summary

Burns: 'A Red, Red Rose' and Other Poems by Robert Burns

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.

About Robert Burns

Robert Burns, born in Ayrshire in 1759, began writing while very young. In 1786, the success of his first volume of poetry led him to move to Edinburgh, where he received enormous acclaim. Two years later, he married and moved with his wife to a farm in Dumfries. In 1789 he took work as an exciseman, and continued working on the collection of Scots songs that eventually consolidated his reputation. He died in 1796, aged thirty-six.
