Lost Robert Burns manuscripts discovered

Postby Cath » Sat Jan 12, 2013 9:43 pm

Keats, as a Burns fan, would likely have been delighted that some new Robert Burns manuscripts have been discovered. Shame, though, that they have been sold to a collector rather than to a museum or university where the public/scholars can view them (I've heard good things about the Burns museum in Ayrshire).

I agree- they should go to the Burns museum.

who we are because of what you left,
what it is we are in what we make of you.
