Robert Burns wrote songs, satires, and verse-letters along with the luminous poetry which has delighted readers for more than 200 years. Since the first edition of this encyclopedic guide to his life and work was published in 1959 it has been regarded as the definitive guide to an important literary figure. This third revised and updated edition includes the latest scholarship about the poet and his work and fills in details of little-known characters in the Burns story. Includes illustrations from period paintings and etchings that bring the people and places of Robert Burns' Scotland to vibrant life.
From the Publisher

An exhaustive guide.
One of the most useful books about Burns ever published.
Fascinating. An immediate treasure-house of information on every person or place involved in Burns' works. This is a book which is an education in itself.
