About the Book

Funny, scurrilous, chilling and gloriously inventive, Tam o' Shanter is widely regarded as Robert Burns' masterpiece. This magnificent edition of the poem features the work of Alexander Goudie, one of Scotland's greatest twentieth-century artists who, over a period of many years, was inspired by the poem to produce some of his most powerful and imaginative paintings, which capture all the menace and comedy of Burn's poem. Together with introductory essays by historian Edward Cowan, literary critic Alan Riach (both of Glasgow University) and the artist's son, Lachlan Goudie, this is the definitive edition of one of the greatest works of Scottish literature.
