Editing Robert Burns for the 21st Century

Scottish poet and lyricist Robert Burns was an 18th-century man, but his work is being reimagined for the modern day in Editing Robert Burns for the 21st Century. A collaboration between the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the British Academy, and the University of Glasgow, this project has several elements: a blog, copies of prose, digital resources (for example, videos and interactive maps), and covers of his songs (performed by "well-known and up-and-coming traditional Scottish artists,"). Readers can also enjoy a Burns Quote of the Day, found at the bottom of the Home page. These resources promote the new Oxford University Press editions of Burns' work. These volumes pair together his writing with "an introductory essay, headnote, and full annotations." The first three volumes have been released and several more volumes are on deck, with upcoming release dates in 2020 and beyond. Recordings of select prose from each edition and songs curated to accompany these writings are available under The Edition tab. To stay up-to-date with the latest from the project, readers may want to follow its Twitter account, @GlasgowBurns.
