Notable works

Robert Burns also known as Rabbie Burns, the Bard of Ayrshire, Ploughman Poet and various other names and epithets was a Scottish poet and 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, accessible to an audience beyond Scotland. He also wrote in standard English, and in these writings his political or civil commentary is often at its sharpest.
