Scottish poet, famous overworld. He wrote his poems, songs and lyrics mainly in the Scottish dialect. Robert Burns (1759-1796)
His Life Burns started writing poems at the age of seventeen. At just 27, Burns had already become famous across the country Though Burns`s poems were popular, he always remained poor. Robert Burns was born on January 25, 1759, in a small clay cottage at Alloway in Ayrshire, Scotland. His parents, Willian Burnes[s] and Agnes Broun, were tenant farmers but they gave their son a good education and he began to read avidly.
Burns`s cottage. Alloway
My heart`s in the Highlands The hills of the Highlands
My heart's in the Highlands a-chasing the deer
My heart's in the Highlands, wherever I go
Hard physical labour on the family farm took its toll on the young Burns, who increasingly turned his attentions towards the passions of poetry, nature, drink and women which would characterise the rest of his life. O my Luve's like a red, red rose That's newly sprung in June O my Luve's like the melodie That's sweetly played in tune.
It was a room in this wee house in 1788 that Robert Burns and his new wife Jean Armour began married life. The characters of Mauchline play a part in many of Burns's poems In just 18 short months, Burns had spent most of the wealth from his published poetry, so in 1789 he began work as an Excise Officer in Dumfries and resumed his relationship with wife Jean.
In 1795, Burns was inspired by the events of the French Revolution to write "For a' that and a' that". Кто честной бедности своей Стыдится и все прочее, Тот самый жалкий из людей, Трусливый раб и прочее. При всем при том, При всем при том, Пускай бедны мы с вами, Богатство - Штамп на золотом, А золотой - Мы сами! Перевод С.Я.Маршака
Burns died in 1796 of rheumatic fever. He was buried in the churchyard of St. Michael's in Dumfries, shortly before his wife, Jean, gave birth to their ninth child. Within a short time of his death, money was sent in from all over Scotland in support of his widow and children. Many of Burns' songs and poems have become international favorites
Burns supper Five years after Robert Burns died, a group of his friends got together to remember him and his poetry. The tradition became established and now, every year on his birthday, 25th January, Scots all round the world celebrate Burns Night with a Burns Supper. Format for A Burns Supper At a grand dinner, guests are piped in (by bagpipes) to take their places at the dining table. The guests are welcomed by the host, who declares the celebrations open.
The Selkirk Grace Some have meat and cannot eat, And some would like to eat but have nothing to eat But we have meat and we can eat, And so let us thank the Lord. The words below are traditionally said to toast a Scottish dinner or meal, especially at a social gathering.
Supper begins with a soup course (often the Scottish favourite Cock-A-Leekie soup). This traditional Scottish chicken and leek soup is not only tasty and hearty but it is also quick and simple to make. Now the haggis, a traditional Scottish dish is piped in from the kitchen while the guests stand and clap the haggis in. The host or an invited guest reads Burn's famous poem, Address To A Haggis.
The haggis is eaten with mashed tatties and neeps (potatoes and turnip). Then there will be dessert (often sherry trifle) and oatcakes and cheese.
After dinner there will be a toast to the Queen, and one of the guests will give a short speech about Burns called "The Immortal Memory". A man makes a "Toast to the Lassies" and a lady makes a toast in reply. "
Guests will take turns reading Burns poems, singing Burns songs and possibly doing some Highland dancing! My Heart is Sair
The party will close with everyone singing Auld Lang Syne Highland dancing at Burns Night
