My review is on Selected Poems by Robert Burns I noticed the description stated Frost but my ISBN matched their image of the book my cover is different as it shows Robert Burns as painted by Alexander Nasmyth I had picked up this book while visiting Scotland several years back and it was a good read then as it is now His poetry is usually written in dialect which may be difficult to understand for some However, his lyrical style will capture your ear if not your heartMy love is like a red red roseThat s newly sprung in June My love is like the melodieThat s sweetly play d in tune Burns laid back and down to earth language, tone and subjects perfectly captures everyday life with hilarious wit A reminder that you do not need to be viewed as great, by yourself or others, to make great things Although I will say that I am glad I am from Northern Ireland and could therefore make sense of most of the old Scots colloquialisms which make up Burns poems Not necessarily an easy read think of the language as Scottish Shakespeare A little pondering and deciphering will likely be necessary.
