God, the Poet and the Devil

ISBN: 
9780715208762
Author: 
Donald Smith

Robert Burns was both Christian and libertine, both moral and promiscuous. He was, along with his country, immersed in the language and ideas of the Church, but he also possessed a quick, independent mind. Donald Smith's new biography of Scotland's national poet tells the story of his life through the lens of his religion, addressing Burns's many contradictions by attempting to understand the nature of Christianity in 18th-century Scottish culture.
