Selections from the Poems of Robert Burns (Classic Reprint)

by Robert Burns | 12 April 2017
Category: General Poetry
Synopsis
Excerpt from Selections From the Poems of Robert Burns In the character of Robert Bums there is much to love and to honor, and much to pity and to blame. His genius was recognized even during his life, and it made the Ayrshire farmer welcome in the highest Edinburgh society. But his social disposition, and the very love in which he was held among the people, led him into all kinds of excesses and dissipations. William Burnes, the father of the poet, was an honest, hardworking farmer, of an intelligence superior to the average of his class. He was a man of strong religious convictions, and was held in the highest esteem and reverence by his son, who honors his memory in that beautiful picture of ideal domestic peasant life, "The Cotter's Saturday Night." Robert Burns was born in 1759, in a humble two-roomed cottage on the banks of the Doon, near the town of Ayr - "Auld Ayr, wham ne'er a town surpasses, For honest men and bonie lasses."
