For about sometime I was looking for a nice book with all the Robert Burns work and finally managed to find one that has everything I would want, this title includes all of Burns’ poems and songs, with a helpful glossary explaining difficult words, a chronology of Burns’s life and a bibliography.
Scottish culture is something I have always loved just as much as I love the country and obviously if we talk about Scottish literature we cannot mention Robert Burns and as today is Robbie Burs night I wanted to share this edition as probably some of you might find it interesting. Now I have to admit is taking me a while to read the book first because is even when some words are transparent many others are Scottish words but don’t worry the book includes a glossary of them so you can check them out and even learn them out of curiosity as many are still in use in Scotland.
This book is a hard cover one, very good quality decent size letter, well organised and also has at the beginning the chronology of Robert Burns life with all the details. Is a really complete and good quality book, easy to read if you really sit down and start to read, in my case I take it as a chocolate box for the soul like every time I feel down I take it and read one poem and incredibly makes me feel better without mention that I absolutely love Auld Lang Syne.

Thank you for this book recommendation! I also am fascinated by Scottish culture, and even though my study abroad program in Scotland was cancelled this year, I’m hoping to “visit” Scotland through literature! I’ll have to check out Robert Burns’s work.
