Robert Burns in Time and Place is a new title in the Scotties series looking at how Robert Burns’ poetry was influenced by what was going on around him, in Ayrshire, in Scotland and in the wider world. The book features timelines of events, photographs, portraits, prints and etchings, and interesting material from National Museums Scotland, Dumfries Museum, and other national collections. It assists the reader to relate to the past and the present and encourages further investigation by web-based research, cross-curricular activity areas, supplemented by ‘Find out’, ‘Did you know?’ and Detective panels with an eight page section with subject related games and puzzles suitable for photocopying. With the Scottish government’s Curriculum for Excellence's emphasis on the Scots language and literature this is an ideal learning resource for schools.
Frances and Gordon Jarvie are the Scotties editors and, between them, authors of six titles in the series
