`Robert Burns was born in a thunderstorm and lived his brief life by flashes of lightning…' So says John Cairney in his introduction. In those flashes his genius revealed itself.

This collection is not another `complete works' but a personal selection from `The Man Who Played Robert Burns'. This is very much John's book. His favourites are reproduced here and he talks about them with an obvious love of the man and his work. His depth of knowledge and understanding has been garnered

The collection includes sixty poems, songs and other works; and an essay that explores Burns's life and influences, his triumphs and tragedies. This informed introduction provides the reader with an insight into Burns's world.

Burns's work has drama, passion, pathos and humour. His careful workmanship is concealed by the spontaneity of his verse. He was always a forward thinking man and remains a writer for the future.  more >>
