Complete Poems and Songs of Robert Burns, The
Robert Burns is more than Scotland's national poet. He has become a symbol of Scottish national identity whose work is still read, recited and sung in schoolrooms, at Burns Suppers and in concerts all around the world. His work shows an acute insight into human behaviour, often reflecting his own fiery politcal views and demonstrating a great talent for caricature and satire. It also shows irony and wit, unashamed romanticism and sentiment, bawdy humour, a seemingly indiscriminate admiration for the fairer sex and a capacity for compassion and feeling for his fellow man.
As the title suggests, this hardback book is a complete guide to all the poetry and songs of Rabbie Burns. A lovely gift.
