Robert Burns in the 21st Century
21st century Burns scholarship is making some unexpected and exciting discoveries about the poet and his work. Robert Burns has also become an inspiration for a new generation of artists - not only poets and literary artists, but visual and installation artists, sculptors, and architects. Fickle Man is a new volume of essays by top international writers and scholars published to mark the 250th anniversary of the poet’s birth, bringing fresh and vigorous insights into the significance of Burns - peasant, poet, Enlightenment genius, revolutionary and lover, to the new century. The book contains 16 pages of full colour plates, has line drawings throughout and features a previously unseen image of the bard.
