    Burns, Robert

    Robert Burns  (1759 – 1796) was a  poet and lyricist, widely regarded as a pioneer of the Romantic movement.  Often viewed as the national poet of Scotland, he is celebrated worldwide. He is the best known of the poets who have written in the Scots language, although he also wrote in English and a light Scots dialect that made his work accessible to an audience beyond Scotland.

    His poem ‘Address to the Unco Guid, or the Rigidly Righteous’ appears in Ten Poems from Scotland.
