Reviews

This excellent book on Robert Burns offers a rich new contribution to the cultural and intellectual history of the Scottish Enlightenment. * Fredrik Albritton Jonsson, Modern Philology * Burnss relationship with British Romanticism requires further attention, and Leasks book will surely become the focal point of that discussion for some years. * David Stewart, Jason Whittaker, and Christopher Machell, Years Work in English Studies * This is a wonderfully satisfying book - beautifully conceived and executed, intellectually challenging and enlightening, and a delight to read. * Susan Manning, Scottish Literary Review * Hugely informative. * Fiona Stafford, BARS Bulletin 39 *
