ByDerek Scott

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
18th century Scots poet Robert Burns wrote many of the most poignant and beautiful love poems of the period, primarily in the Scots language. In A Red, Red, Rose Derek Scott has translated eighty of the love poems and songs of Burns from the original Scots language into modern day English, making the works more accessible to a modern day reader. The works are printed both in the original Scots and modern English on adjacent pages to allow the reader to compare the versions easily. Included are many of Burns’ most famous works: A Red, Red Rose; Ae Fond Kiss; and John Anderson, my Jo; as well as many less well known works.
