Collins Burns Supper Companion Summary


Collins Burns Supper Companion by Nancy Marshall

An indispensible guide to organising your own Burns Supper and to enjoying this traditional Scottish event to the full

Robert Burns is Scotland's national bard, a poet of true genius whose talents were recognised in his own lifetime as well as by subsequent generations. His poems and songs reflect so many different aspects of the human condition that it is easy to see why he is held in such deep regard across the globe, not only by Scots exiles or those of Scottish descent. There are even Burns Clubs in Russia where the poet is held in high esteem because of his egalitarian views!

The Burns Supper is celebrated every year on or around 25th January, the anniversary of the poet's death, and the elaborate ritual involved can be mystifying to the newcomer or daunting for the inexperienced organiser. This indispensable companion details the formalities and pleasures of the evening so that it can be enjoyed to the full. It includes
* A step-by-step guide to the Supper with tips on organisation, sample speeches, essential background information and correct etiquette.
* A biographical introduction to Burns, his poetry and the history of the occasion.
* A selection of his finest poems and songs, with supporting notes on how they came to be written and accompanied by many apt quotations.

So whether you are wanting to organise your own Burns Supper, are delivering the 'Immortal Memory' or simply attending one for the first time, the Collins Burns Supper Companion will help you get the most out of this highly enjoyable experience.
