Overview

Drawing on extensive scholarship and the poet's own inimitable letters, this edition, with extensive explanatory notes and a full Scots glossary for each of the poems, provides the most complete edition of Burns's work ever published. The poems and songs are also supplemented by a wealth of information on Burns's life and times. This controversial yet thorough reappraisal of the poet features over a dozen newly attributed poems and songs, which demonstrate that the poet's political sympathies were more radical than he could safely put his name to in public print. The Canongate Burns also includes the sexually scandalous versions known as "The Merry Muses," originally circulated only in handwritten copies.
