Burns in Edinburgh

Date(s) - 25/01/2012
6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

Faculty Room South


Although we may associate Burns with Ayrshire, Edinburgh was very important to him.  He stayed in the city between 1786 and 1788 where he met important figures from the Scottish Enlightenment, and the young Walter Scott who later spoke of his ‘extraordinary talents’.  In this event, Edinburgh poets will speak about what Burns means to them, and critics from Edinburgh university will discuss his time in the city.  So celebrate Burns Night with us in ‘Edina, Scotia’s darling seat.’
