About this product
- DescriptionThe Immortal Memory remains the centrepiece of the traditional Burns Supper and although that rite might be seen by some to have had its day, the Immortal Memory itself still retains its importance and prestige to Burns lovers all over the world. It is an hour to be invited to present this toast and it is to hour this status and to further respect its subject that Dr Cairney's third book on Burns is devoted to his Immortal Memory . The extraordinary thing is that the contributors, while dealing with the same man, all appear to see him so differently, but what they all still have in common is a love and admiration for the man and his work. This is the factor that makes Burns unique, that he has the same appeal for so many different kinds of people.
- Author BiographyIn his acting career, John Cairney was described as a living embodiment of Robert Burns, perhaps best known for writing and starring in the 1968 Scottish Television adaptation 'Burns', which was presented as a six week serial. Since then, he has written and performed Burns on all media and at festivals around the world. Cairney's ten books to date include The Man who Played Robert Burns, On the Trail of Robert Burns and The Luath Burns Companion. It can be seen then that he has grown in his knowledge and understanding of Scotland's famous poet in the last thirty years. Into this, his latest book on Burns, he puts his wealth of experience and literary skill, as well as a performer's understanding of what it means to stand up and deliver the most important speech of the Burns year.
