This fine resource for students and teachers features a beginner's guide to the life and legacy of the Bard of Scotland, excerpts of letters and manuscripts, electronic texts, articles and critical analysis and commentary and a discussion forum on the poet's importance and enduring legacy:

"Firstly, and most importantly, Burns work is the continuing story of an ordinary Scotsman, his background, his encounters, his observations & thoughts. His poems & letters give a detailed account of the life & times, culture & politics of the day, all of which are readily apparent. ... Secondly, the content, quality, interpretation and variety of his work is quite remarkable."
