Quintessentially Scottish, the poetry of Robert Burns has become famous across the world. With classics such as „Tam O’Shanter”, „Auld Lang Syne”, and „To a Louse”, his work ranged seamlessly from powerful nationalist pieces to playful songs. His use of the vernacular gives a character to his verse that cannot be found anywhere else.
Whether the subject is haggis or Halloween, Burns’ enthralling words bring to life the everyday, and the essential character of the Scottish people. His combination of Scottish folklore and literary tradition created some of the most remarkable poetry ever written.
