Excerpt


Robert Burns, the most celebated of all Scottish poets, is remembered with great devotion. Born in 1759 into miserable, rustic poverty, by the age of eighteen Burns had acquired a good knowledge of both classical and English literature. In June, 1786 his first collection of verse, Poems Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect, which included <>To a Mouse and The Cotter's Saturday Night, was greeted with huge acclaim by all classes of society. His later poems and ballads include Auld Lang Syne, the beautiful song My Love is Like a Red, Red Rose, Highland Mary, Scots Wha Hae, and his masterpiece, Tam o'Shanter.
