Предња корица
Tuckwell, 2002 - 262 страница
This study of poet Robert Burns's politics uncovers the intellectual context of the poet's political radicalism. Burns is revealed as a sophisticated political poet whose work draws on the democratic, contractarian ideology of Scottish Presbyterianism; the English and Irish Real Whig tradition; and the political theory of the Scottish Enlightenment. Casting new light on the poet's education and his early reading, this book provides detailed new readings of Burns's major poems and offers research on his links with Irish poets and radicals, providing a major reinterpretation of the man who is coming to be recognized as the poet laureate of the radical Enlightenment.
