Tam o' Shanter is a wonderful, epic poem in which Burns paints a vivid picture of the drinking classes in the old Scotch town of Ayr in the late 18th century

Tam o' Shanter is a wonderful, epic poem in which Burns paints a vivid picture of the drinking classes in the old Scotch town of Ayr in the late 18th century. It is populated by several unforgettable characters including of course Tam himself, his bosom pal, Souter (Cobbler) Johnnie and his own long suffering wife Kate, "Gathering her brows like gathering storm, nursing her wrath to keep it warm". We are also introduced to Kirkton Jean, the ghostly, "winsome wench", Cutty Sark and let's not forget his gallant horse, Maggie.

Robert Burns (25 January 1759 – 21 July 1796), also known familiarly as Rabbie Burns, the National Bard, Bard of Ayrshire and the Ploughman Poet and various other names and epithets, was a Scottish poet and lyricist. He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland and is celebrated worldwide.

Robert Burns’s most popular book is Poems and Songs. Tam O'Shanter by. Robert Burns.

This truth fand honest Tam o' Shanter, As he frae Ayr ae night did canter: (Auld Ayr, wham ne'er a town surpasses, For honest men and bonie lasses)

This truth fand honest Tam o' Shanter, As he frae Ayr ae night did canter: (Auld Ayr, wham ne'er a town surpasses, For honest men and bonie lasses). O Tam! had'st thou but been sae wise, As taen thy ain wife Kate's advice! She tauld thee weel thou was a skellum, A blethering, blustering, drunken blellum; That frae November till October, Ae market-day thou was na sober; That ilka melder wi' the Miller, Thou sat as lang as thou had siller; That ev'ry naig was ca'd a shoe on The Smith and thee gat roarin' fou on; That at the Lord's house

Burns's linguistic craftsmanship here reaches its frenzied forte. Compositional history

When chapman billies leave the street, And drouthy neibors, neibors, meet; As market days are wearing late, And folk begin to tak the gate, While we sit bousing at the nappy, An' getting fou and unco happy, We think na on the lang Scots miles, The mosses, waters, slaps and stiles, That lie between us and our hame, Where sits our sulky, sullen. dame, Gathering her brows like gathering storm, Nursing her wrath to keep it warm. Burns's linguistic craftsmanship here reaches its frenzied forte. Compositional history. Tam o' Shanter' was composed to accompany a drawing of Alloway-Kirk in the second volume of Captain Francis Grose's Antiquities of Scotland (April 1791).

An excellent book! This book lacks the illustrations in the original book which can be seen in on the Tam O'Shanter wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tam_o%27_Shanter_%28poem%29.

This book has no links to the excellent Robert Burns concordance and other Robert Burns Resources avaliable online, which can be found in : Smart Remarks of Robert Burns, only on Amazon.com, which is FREE on the First Saturday of every month

Just about the best illustrations one could imagine for what is perhaps Burns' best work of poetry.

The best poem/song to have ever been written.

Lovely Robert Burns poem. Source I sought for origin of "Cutty Sark" in doing research for the Houston Maritime Museum. It was the gaelic word for the garmet of the flying witch that chased poor Tam across the bridge getting only the tail of his horse. The witch, the horses tail and the cutty sark became the figure head of the fastest British clipper ships in the China tea trade. The whiskey was named for the ship. The poem is worth the struggle with the ancient English.
