More than 250 years after his birth, Robert Burns is widely regarded as the world’s favourite, greatest and most accessible poet.
This popular wee book covers his life, from his birth as a farmer's son at Alloway in Ayrshire, his success as a poet and his many love affairs, to his tragic death in Dumfries as the age of only 37.
Also included are more than 20 places to visit associated with Burns, such as his birthplace, his homes and farms, museums, and the house where he died, plus the full text of many of his renowned poems: ‘To a Haggis’, ‘Tam o’ Shanter’, Scots Wha Hae’, and ‘Ae Fond Kiss’. with a glossary of Scottish words.
Also in this updated edition are sections on how to host a Burns Supper, and useful websites about Burns.
Dilys Jones’s spirited account, enhanced by many portraits, photos, drawings and maps, brings to life Scotland’s beloved bard.
