Best Laid Schemes by Robert Crawford

Book Description

Newly edited from early printed texts and from manuscripts, "The Best Laid Schemes" is the only substantial selection of Burns' work in print which has line-by-line glossing of the Scots words. Burns himself added a concluding general glossary to his book, but many modern readers will prefer simply to run their eye along the line for a gloss, rather than having to ferret around at the back of the volume. As well as containing outstanding examples of Burns' prose, this selection also includes some rediscovered verse, printed from manuscript and available in no other editions. Burns' best-loved poems are here along with a full selection of the work which shows his sheer mastery of form, his political interests, his enthusiasms and loves. This book aims to help readers attend sympathetically to a masterfully constructed, remarkable, and freshly accessible poetic voice.

Book of Iona by Robert Crawford Book of Iona, Hardback (August 2016)

An anthology of fiction, non-fiction and poetry inspired by the isle of Iona.

On Glasgow and Edinburgh by Robert Crawford On Glasgow and Edinburgh, Paperback (November 2015)

A mere forty miles apart, these cities have enjoyed a rivalry since wistful Edinburgh lost parliamentary sovereignty and defiant Glasgow came into its industrial promise. Crawford brings them to life between the covers of one book, in a tale that mixes novelty and familiarity, as Scotland s cultural capital and largest commercial city do."
