The Scottish poet Robert Burns has been idolised and eulogised. He has been sainted, painted, tarted up and toasted. In this text, Scottish essayist Andrew O'Hagan presents a collection of the poet's work. He selects the poems for the reader, and converses with the work, offering fragments and distilled commentary of his own.The effect is explosive, giving us Robert Burns at his very best - a political Burns, a poet who can name hypocrisy and intolerance, and point directly to the human heart.
