Robert Burns (January 25, 1759 July 21, 1796) was a poet and a lyricist. He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland, and is celebrated worldwide. He is the best-known of the poets who have written in the Scots language, although much of his writing is also in English and a 'light' Scots dialect which would have been accessible to a wider audience than simply Scottish people. At various times in his career, he wrote in English, and in these pieces, his political or civil commentary is often at its most blunt.
Did you know, for instance:
That Burns wrote the lyrics to our traditional New Year’s tune, “Auld Lang Syne”?
That his birthday (Jan. 25) is more widely celebrated in Scotland than the official national holiday, St. Andrew’s Day?
That Bob Dylan considers Burns his biggest inspiration?
