Immortal Memory

Burns and the Scottish People

Christopher A Whatley

Nineteenth-century Scotland had other heroes besides Robert Burns (1759–96), notably William Wallace and Sir Walter Scott, but the ‘ploughman poet’ was first among equals, a figure who inspired pilgrimage, relic-collectors, ‘Burns suppers’, commemorative editions, monuments and statues. In investigating what Burns meant to ordinary Scots and how he was read and understood, Whatley treats the afterlife of the poet, not only as a literary phenomenon, but as a moving force within the mainstream of Scottish history.
