1801 Robert Burns Works Scottish Poetry & Scotland Poems English Illustrated 3v

“My love is like a red, red rose That's newly sprung in June: My love is like the melody That's sweetly played in tune…”

– Robert Burns

Robert Burns was a Scottish poet and lyricist. He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland and is celebrated worldwide. He is regarded as a pioneer of the Romantic Movement and after his death became a great source of inspiration to the founders of both liberalism and socialism. A cultural icon in Scotland and among the Scottish Diaspora around the world, celebration of his life and work became almost a national charismatic cult during the 19th and 20th centuries, and his influence has long been strong on Scottish literature.

This 1801 edition includes the works of Robert Burns featuring original letters, poems, and critical observations on Scottish Songs.
