This "magnificent and authoritative work" presents the complete verse of Scotland's National Bard with extensive textual and historical notes (Colm Toibin, The Independent, UK).
Best known for poems such as "A Red, Red Rose" and "Ae Fond Kiss," and for the song "Auld Lang Synge," which is sung around the world every New Years' Eve, Robert Burns was one of the most important poets of the 18th century. A major influence on the Romantic poetry movement, Burns is still beloved across Scotland, with Burns Night celebrated every January 25th.
This complete volume of the writer's poetry and songs includes previously unpublished pieces, draws on extensive scholarship and Burn's own letters, and offers supplemental information about his life, early hardships, political beliefs, and literary contexts. An extensive glossary of Scots words is included.
"A very fine edition, and the long introduction, which sets out to clear the tangled banks, is alone worth the cover price."—The Scotsman, UK
