Hard to read, hard to understand, but oh how they connect me with my Scottish heritage. This edition offers a lovely glossary in the back to help with the dialect. ( )

What a gift Burns had for rhyme and meter. He makes it look so easy and spontaneous. The book has lots of social commentary with poems written as open letters to his contemporaries and epitaphs for the deceased. He eulogized the living and the dead in verse. He commented on current political and religious debates in verse. This was in additional to the usual topics of life, death, and romance chronicled by all poets. There is also much in praise of the delights of love, flesh, drink, and the working class. He was a rural farmer who never forgot his roots, or, more accurately his plow and barn dances, and especially what you might do when the dancing was over.

This edition contains the nearly complete lyrical works of Scotland’s most famous poet. A few recently discovered verses and some of the more raunchy erotic lyrics, such as “Brose and Butter” are missing, but the volume is still a poetic banquet with a glossary of Scots words, and indexes by first line and title.

The editor/compiler, James Barke, seems to grasp the importance of Burns -- describing his as a "many-sided genius" and selecting so many examples. Still, he fails to link the artist/thinker culture-warrior to the great Liberal movement of which Burns is one of the Founders. He lets the fury fade -- and crosses it -- with the "Jacobin" references.

Not only is this poetry loved, it is universally loved. The editor/compiler notes the following:

There is no more flaming satire than "Holy Willie's Prayer".
There is no greater tale than "Tam o' Shanter".
"If a Man's a Man for a' that" is the Marseillaise of humanity,
and "Auld Lang Syne" is the world's "national" anthem.
There is no more tender love song than "O, My Luve's like a red, red rose".
There is no finer epistle than "Epistle to Davie" [152]
There is nothing in world literature to equal the shattering, liberating cosmology of "Love and Liberty". [1]

Burns laughed the Devil out of Hell "(and-- more difficult--banished him from Scots Presbyterian theology)" and then took pity on Him.

He is the "first poet of common humanity" and "the first to transcend poetry". Does Barke go over the top to say "...there can be no greater poet than Burns"? [10] Where Barke goes overboard is to claim that Burns despised those "who put their trust in party politicians". Not at all -- Burns despised the plutocrats who corrupted the people's representatives. Burns is not a hater of "Government". Burns is a rising Liberal repuke to the plutocrats and the ignorant white males used by the plutocrats to keep themselves in power. This book contains so many, so many examples! "Man to man the world o'er, shall brithers be for a' that."

Of course, Barke is exactly right that Burns wrote for those whose home is in the heart: "The heart ay's the part ay that makes us right or wrang".

The last item:

"ON THE AUTHOR : He who of Rankine sang {in reply to an obituary, p. 246; and Epistle to John Rankine p 152}, lies stiff and deid, And a green, grassy hillock hides his heid: Alas! alas! a devilish change indeed!" ( )

Whatever mitigates the woes or increases the happiness of others, this is my criterion of goodness; and whatever injures society at large, or any individual in it, this is my measure of iniquity. Burns.
