Robert Burns

a.k.a. Rabbie Burns

Author Code: ERBU

Born: Jan. 25, 1759 - Alloway, Scotland

Died: Jul. 21, 1796 - Dumfries, Scotland

Raised on a farm, Burns had a tough childhood; much of his education coming from his father. In 1772, he attended Dalrymple Parish School. In 1774, he fell in love and penned his first poem. His first book of poems, Poems, Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect, appeared in 1786 and was an immediate success, and Burns was celebrated throughout Scotland and England as the "peasant poet". In 1788, he and his wife settled in Ellisland and Burns became an excise officer. Burns spent the remainder of his life collecting and editing traditional songs of Scotland. Most of his poems were written in the Scottish dialect. His best known poems is probably Tam o' Shanter which was published in 1790. Nevertheless, works such as Auld Lang Syne and Address to a Haggis are equally popular. Burns' health was frail, probably due to his early life and what is thought to have been a rheumatic heart condition, led to his death at the very early age of 37. His other works include The Scots Musical Museum (1787) [mostly by Burns] and the posthumous works The Calf (1797), The Merry Muses of Caledonia (1799) and Reliques of Robert Burns (1808.
