Robert Burns is an enduring national figure with an international reputation. His life was cut short at the early age of 37, yet his achievement was extraordinary, and a lasting inspiration to this country. This book explores the personality of the poet against the background of the Scotland that he loved-and the parts of it that he loathed. Drawing on a rich collection of resources from Scotland’s national institutions and beyond, Gavin Sprott travels forgotten territory and traces the links between Burns the man how we see him today.
