Overview of 'Heaven-Taught Fergusson': Robert Burns's Favourite Scottish Poet

The 10 specially commissioned poems in this book pay tribute to Robert Fergusson, continuing a tradition of homage to Scotland's national poet, while sounding their own contemporary notes. Sometimes gleeful, sometimes solemn, this book both winks at and scrutinizes a poet who was in several ways strikingly different from the poetic master Robert Burns. Poets and critics from three continents come together in this volume to suggest just what it is about Fergusson that makes him still seem "heaven-taught."

Author Biography: Robert Crawford is a professor of English at the University of St. Andrews.
