BBC Radio 4 „In Our Time“: Robert Burns

„Melvyn Bragg and guests dis­cuss the work of the man who, in his life­time, was called The Cale­don­ian Bard and whose fame and influ­ence was to spread around the world. Burns (1759–1796) was born in Ayr­shire and his work as a ten­ant farmer earned him the label The Plough­man Poet, yet it was the qual­i­ty of his verse that helped his rep­u­ta­tion endure and grow. His work inspired oth­er Roman­tic poets and his per­son­al sto­ry and ideas com­bined with that, giv­ing his poems a broad strength and appeal – sung by rev­o­lu­tion­ar­ies and on Mao’s Long March, as well as on New Year’s Eve and at Burns Sup­pers.
With Robert Craw­ford (Pro­fes­sor of Mod­ern Scot­tish Lit­er­a­ture and Bish­op Ward­law Pro­fes­sor of Poet­ry at the Uni­ver­si­ty of St Andrews), Fiona Stafford (Pro­fes­sor of Eng­lish at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Oxford), and Mur­ray Pit­tock (Bradley Pro­fes­sor of Eng­lish Lit­er­a­ture and Pro Vice Prin­ci­pal at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Glas­gow)“
