Robert Burns (1759-96), was the eldest son of a
tenant farmer in Ayrshire. He endured hardship
and frustration before emerging as poet and
song-writer in his native dialect as well as
His Poems were published in 1787, and when he
received part of the money which the new
edition earned for him, he made a number of
tours, to the Borders and to the Highlands.
Otherwise, apart from a return visit to
Ayrshire, he was to spend the winter of 1787-8
in Edinburgh also. Later, he lived in
Dumfriesshire and became an Excise Officer.
Burns's literary work in the remaining years of
his life consists of many outstanding songs,
and the poem 'Tam o' Shanter'.
