Robert Burns : a man for all seasons : the natural world of Robert Burns by John Young( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The notion that Robert Burns was inspired by 'nature' - an appreciation of rural landscape, plants and animals - has been espoused and perpetuated for well over a century by a long list of writers and speakers. Burns referred to nature - including flowers, trees, birds and landscape - no fewer than 2,880 times in all, a quite remarkable total unsurpassed by any other poet, then or since." "This book analyses and catalogues, for the first time, the natural history records contained in the Bard's writings. It proves that his undoubted love of nature was founded on factual knowledge, and not the gleanings of a romantic ploughman. Several long-held, well-established beliefs are also controversially challenged." "Each entry is accompanied by its common, generic and local name, including Scots and Gaelic; and is supported by extracts from Burns' poems and songs where appropriate."--BOOK JACKET
