Overview

Poems in Scots and English by Robert Burns

Writing in his native Lowland Scots dialect. Burns is an assured and poised poet. None of his contemporaries is able to rival his use of language or mastery of pitch and timing, whether in English or Scots. His originality is expressed in the poetic satire of the genial dialogue between Caesar and Luath in 'The Twa dog'; in the perceptive 'The Holy Fair '; and in the contempt he conveys for the speaker in Holy willie's Prayer'.
