Robert Burns

Robert Burns (25 January 1759-21 July 1796) is, quite simply, Scotland’s Bard. A poet and lyricist, he began life as a farm labourer but shot to fame following the publication of Poems, Chiefly in the Scottish dialect. Lionised by polite society, Burns’ fame – and life – unfortunately did not last and he died at the early age of 37. In that short time, though, he took the Scottish literary world by storm, secured a place for himself in history and legend and left a legacy that continues of influence to this day.
