Description

An invigorating collection of Robert Burns to accompany you through the seasons. From spring’s transient, blossoming beauty in ‘Afton Water’ to a celebration of everlasting love in summer’s ‘O My Luve’s Like a Red, Red Rose’; from Tam o’ Shanter’s rowdy supernatural adventures in autumn to the simple conviviality of the ‘Selkirk Grace’ at wintry festivities . . . Robert Burns’s words, both famous and lesser-known, mingle here in tribute to his unique literary output. With Burns for Every Day of the Year, Scotland’s national bard will earn the place in your heart – and on your bedside table – that he so richly deserves. Join Robert Burns on a wide-ranging journey of poetry, prose and song through every day of the year . . . take 366 daily dips into Burns to inspire, invigorate and amuse. Across the world, as midnight strikes on New Year’s Eve, Burns’s beloved song ‘Auld Lang Syne’ is sung in a spirit of friendship and togetherness. But his exuberant wit, insight and generous-hearted humanity can be celebrated every day. This stunning collection – perfect for Burns aficionados and Burns beginners alike – reminds us of old favourites and introduces new treasures. Thoughtfully curated by Dr Pauline Mackay of the University of Glasgow, it offers 366 glimpses into the genius of this remarkable bard, creating a panoramic view of his colourful life and multifaceted literary legacy.
