Drawing very substantially from a 1996 lecture series delivered at a number of venues in Scotland and England, 11 essays examine how sly Robbie thumbed a poetic nose at the church, language, literati, kings, governments, and his own best interests for as long as he drew breath, and was then immediately transformed into a posthumous patron for a bewildering array of causes. Among the topics are women and homosexuals, the aesthetics and politics of metrical forms, the American and French revolutions, and the conflation by some later writers of Burns with God. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
