9780007118588: Collins Burns Supper Companion

A guide to organizing your own Burns Supper and to enjoying this traditional Scottish event to the full. Robert Burns is Scotland's national bard, a poet whose talents were recognized in his own lifetime as well as by subsequent generations. The Burns Supper is celebrated every year on or around 25th January, the anniversary of the poet's death, and the elaborate ritual involved can be mystifying to the newcomer or daunting for the inexperienced organizer. This companion therefore details the formalities and pleasures of the evening. It includes: a step-by-step guide to the Supper with tips on organization, sample speeches, essential background information and correct etiquette; a biographical introduction to Burns, his poetry and the history of the occasion; and a selection of his finest poems and songs, with supporting notes on how they came to be written and accompanying quotations. So whether you want to organize your own Burns Supper, are delivering the "Immortal Memory" or simply attending one for the first time, the "Collins Burns Supper Companion" should help you get the most out of this highly enjoyable experience.
