Product description

The poems of Robert Burns are known throughout the world, but are often misunderstood. For too long, lovers of his poetry and songs have struggled with the meaning of many of the bard's words. This volume of Burns' poetry, with 138 poems, carries opposite every stanza of each poem the meaning of what Burns has written along with a helpful glossary to enable the reader to gain an immediate understanding. No delving into notes at the end of the book is necessary. This is a new way to access the works of Robert Burns.
