The Burns Encyclopedia

Welcome to The Burns Encyclopedia online - the complete text of the definitive Robert Burns reference volume.

'A must for Burns lovers' is how The Burns Encyclopedia was hailed when it first appeared in the bi-centenary year, 1959. As a handbook and guide to readers of the poet's poems and letters and as a reference book to his life, his work and Burns scholarship, it is invaluable. It also provides a fascinating Scottish backcloth to the eighteenth century, and is thus enjoyable as a bedside anthology in its own right.

This is the third revised and updated edition of a classic work, now online for the first time. And you can purchase your own copy for your bookshelf or as the perfect gift for a Burns lover.

"Lindsay's text has acquired almost sacred status with devoted Burnsians... covers almost every aspect of Burns." Glasgow Herald

"An exhaustive Guide" Guardian

"One of the most useful books about Burns ever published" Scots Magazine

"Fascinating... an immediate treasure-house of information on every person or place involved in Burns' works. This is a book which is an education in itself. Leopard Magazine
