Many nations have produced outstanding poets who they would gladly have represent their Culture. But can any Nation say they have an equivalent of Robert Burns...The Ploughman Poet, The Bard Of Scotland?

This one poet is indelibly linked and intertwined with the culture and people of Scotland. His life, loves, politics, verse, and songs speak as them and for them. Politically, he was an inspiration to both liberalism and socialism as well as a Scottish parliament. His unique ability enabled him to appeal to all and quite rightly to be viewed as the National poet. His fame today is worldwide and celebrated in January each year with the Traditional Burns night. Each New Years Eve friends and families the world over link arms to 'Auld Lang Syne', giving immortality to his words and aims.

The former Secretary General of the United Nations, Kofi Annan, has said that Burn's poems dignify and illuminate the struggle faced by the vast majority of the world's population today.

Our selection of poems is read to you by Gordon Kennedy. Perhaps most well known as Little John in the ITV series Robin Hood, Gordon is an accomplished actor and a familar sight on TV. Download and start listening now!

    " Wonderful! One of my favorites...like Moby-Dick, it can be enjoyed over and over. Comprised of Mutiny on the Bounty, Men Against The Sea and Pitcairn's Island, it's meaty and fulfilling. "

    " The Mutiny on the Bounty is truly one of my favorite books of all time. You've seen the films, you think you know the story, but the book goes so far beyond that. The part about Bligh's navigating them to Timor in that little boat is more than remarkable. The part about the mutineers on Pitcairn is fascinating, and not hard to see how things went so horribly awry there. I don't know why I love sea stories but I do and this is the best. "

    " The first book was really good. It was written as a narration of the mutiny and the resulting trial in England. The second one covered the story of how Bligh managed to survive with his loyal crew on the life boat. The third book covered what happened to the mutineers. The second and third book went downhill in quality from the first. "

    " Pretty tame so far. "
