Robert Burns is more than Scotland's national poet. He has become a symbol of Scottish national identity whose work is still read, spoken and sung today. Burns was born and grew up in Ayrshire. His farming family led a very frugal, physically demanding life. Burns wrote poetry as an escape from these circumstances and by his mid-twenties he was an accomplished writer of verse, publishing his first work, Poems Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect, in 1786.
This book details the life, loves and work of the charismatic figure who is, to this day, one of the best known and best loved of Scotland's icons.
