The present volume contains 43 of his finest poems and songs, reprinted unabridged from an authoritative tenth-century edition. Included are "The Twa Dogs," a deft satire of the Scottish upper classes; "To a Mouse," one of the poet's best known, most charming works; "Address to the Unco Guid," an attack on Puritan hypocrisy; "Holy Willie's Prayer," one of the great verse-satires of all times; as well as such favorites as "The Cotter's Saturday Night," "To a Mountain Daisy," "The Holy Fair," "Address to the Deil," "The Death and Dying Words of Poor Mailie," and many more.
In addition to his poetic undertakings, Burns almost single-handedly preserved and revived the traditional Scottish song, and this volume includes a rich selection of these works: "A Red, Red Rose," "Auld Lang Syne," "Comin' thro' the Rye," "My Heart's in the Highlands," "My Love, She's But a Lassie Yet," and a host of others.
One of the most influential books of Robert Burns songs, compiled and introduced by G.F.Maine. These songs were a collection of the most significant and burns ballies still popular today.
Popular traditional songs are featured, such as ‘Ae Fond Kiss’, ‘Green Grow the Rashes’, ‘Auld Lang Syne’ and ‘Bonnie Jean’.
This comprehensive collection of 97 songs also contains a number of lesser known songs such as ‘Address to the Woodlark’, ‘The Gloomy Night’, ‘Duncan Davidson’ and ‘On a Bank of Flowers’.
This unique collection from love songs to poetry celebrates Scottish traditional song at its best.
Best known for his dialect lyrical verse on nature, love, patriotism and rural life, as well as for such well-loved songs as 'Auld Lang Syne' and 'Robert Bruce's March to Bannockburn' ('Scots Wha Hae'), he was equally as skilful with great lyrics on philosophical subjects. Offering everything from simple ballads to great set pieces like 'Tam O'Shanter', this collection celebrates the work of the poor farmer-turned-exciseman who became, literally, the voice of an entire nation.
