The perfect gift for poetry lovers. A comprehensive collection of the Scottish Bard's songs and poems.

The 19th-century scholar and educationalist J S Blackie summed up Burns's importance to Scotland and the Scots with the words:
'When Scotland forgets Burns, then history will forget Scotland.'
Today, Burns is unique in the affection and fascination that his memory inspires. The fruits of his legacy can be seen not only in Scotland but around the world - on product packaging, in advertising and on a wealth of merchandise, as well as through continued scholarship and academic study.

I had only ever read or heard some of his short poems, and what I liked about this selection was the numerous longer poems, many of which were really good. I had at the same time borrowed the CD 'There Was A Lad...' (singing of Burns' poems) and was surprised that about half of the songs sung on it were in this selection. It was also a well structured selection, with similar poems grouped together.
