Book Description

1886. Illustrated with sixty etchings and wood cuts, maps and facsimiles. From the Editor's Preface:...each volume is complete in itself, covering a certain period of the poet's life, and comprising both his rhymed and unrhymed productions, the poetry keeping time with the prose and the prose with the poetry; while the intercalated biography aids in illustrating both and in turn receives illustration from them. The Contents of this volume cover the period between 1773 to 1787. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.

Robert Burns cannot be compared. His works of poetry will live on into eternity and all good Scots recognize him as their ambassador to love and life.

The poems are great but I could not easily locate them. I need a better and useful table of contents. This is a continuing problem with e-books on my Kindle. I am back with my hardcover version.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Burns is surprisingly readable 8 juillet 2013
Par Quercus - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
The Delphi version of the Complete Works of Robert Burns proved an appropriate purchase prior to visiting Burns' birthplace, monument and museum in Alloway. Indexed both alphabetically and chronologically, it is a simple matter to find the complete versions of poems or songs of which many people have, almost unknowingly, absorbed part, such as "Mouse", "Tae a Haggis", "Bannockburn", the choruses of "Charlie, he's my Darling" and "Green Grow the Rashes" or of which they roughly know the story, for example, "Tam o' Shanter". Chronologically, the book traces Burn's development as a writer from his teens until his death at the age of thirty-seven and his less than admirable personal activities.

The surprise was the readability of Burns. Although quite capable of writing standard English, of which there are several examples in the book, many of his works were written in so-called "lallans", a word he may have coined himself to describe the common speech of the time, derided by some as "synthetic Scots" on the basis that no-one spoke in such a way. Whatever the truth, it adds a great deal to his writing and it is not particularly difficult to understand even though some words may seem strange. If necessary a glossary is appended in the Delphi version of his works.

Of particular interest are the biographies, Burns own accounts of his background and education, such as those given in his letters "To Dr. Moore" and "To Mrs. Dunlop", and some of the amusing but quite scathing epithets which Burns wrote.

Parts of this book can be read as one would read any other narrative. Others, such as the poems and songs, become tedious after a while and can be covered in several sessions.

Delphi has made a splendid job of presenting Burns and his work and the book can be thoroughly recommended, as can a visit to Alloway, which features in several of his works and where he spent much of his life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Easily navigated edition of the works of Robert Burns. 22 juillet 2013
Par Romana III - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Having never bought poetry in Kindle format before, I was unsure of what to expect (whether the poetry's lines and stanzas would be preserved, etc.) However, in this case there was nothing to worry about. Not only was the poetry extremely readable, but it was also easy to find because of the chronological and alphabetical tables of contents. Delphi has done a commendable edition of Robert Burns' work. As for the poetry itself, it is very entertaining and not as difficult a read as one might think. For anyone who loves Scotland, Robert Burns is a wonderful introduction to classic Scottish writers and culture.
