The 250th anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns (1759-1796), one of the most popular poets, is celebrated in 2009. A pioneer of the Romantic movement, works such as "A Red, Red Rose", "A Man's a Man For A' That" and the ubiquitous "Auld Lang Syne", have made him an international figure. Naxos AudioBooks' popular "Great Poets" series marks the anniversary with a CD bringing together all the key works.

To celebrate the 250th birthday of Robert Burns, here's an energetic Scots narration that does full justice to the poet's vigorous language and forthright views. Whether his subject is the thorns, or joys, of love, a "creepin blastit" louse or sympathy for the "toil-worn cotter", Burns's language sings. - Rachel Redford, The Observer
