9780877455783: Robert Burns and Cultural Authority

Eleven contemporary writers and academics analyze the place of Scotland's best-loved poet in relation to literary and social institutions since the eighteenth century. From "Burns and God" to "Burns and Sex", the essays reflect upon why Burns's work has acquired worldwide cultural importance. Nobel prize winner Seamus Heaney, novelist A. L. Kennedy, poet Douglas Dunn and literary historian Marilyn Butler are among the impressive array of contributors to this lively volume.

Review:

“This is a lively, original, and ground-breaking collection of essays that places Burns in new contexts and relates his work and influence to some the principle concerns of recent criticism. It may well remain a fixed point in the development of Burns criticism. It genuinely expands our understanding of the subject in radical new ways.”—David Daiches



“What is remarkable, when the subject is a best-loved poet such as Burns, is that most of the poems discussed are mentioned by only one of the essayists and that the comments are almost always fresh and illuminating.”—John E. Grant
