Celebrate ROBERT BURNS Birthday with Rosemary Goring's SCOTLAND: THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY

Early birthday greetings go out to the great Scottish poet Robert Burns, who turns 250 on Sunday, January 25. In Rosemary Goring's recent account of Scottish history, Scotland: The Autobiography, she includes both the famous review by Henri Mackenzie of Burns's first collection of poems in 1786, and Sir Walter Scott's account of his meeting with Burns in 1787.
