If your only encounter with Robert Burns is singing Auld Lang Syne at the bells on Hogmanay, then you've landed on the right page!
Written chiefly in Scots, Burns' poetry and songs have the power to surprise, entertain and touch your heart. They fall largely into three categories - thought-provoking, romantic and humorous (sometimes combining several of these themes in the same piece).
Here's a wee taste of some of his most famous work. You'll see plenty of his charm and quick wit shining through, as well as his passionate egalitarian beliefs and his fierce pride in being Scottish.
