Scottish poet and songwriter of more than 200 songs, a national hero who was world revered, writing nearly all his works in the Scots dialect. Burns was largely self-educated, receiving his smattering of education from brief periods of schooling at the parish school in Dalrymple. His first set of poems, appearing in 1786 were followed by the Edinburgh edition in 1787, which helped establish his reputation. Burns was appointed excise officer in 1789 and moved to Dumfries in 1791 where he remained for the rest of his life. A few of Burn's better known works are; "The Cotter's Saturday Night," "To A Mouse," "Auld Lang Syne" and "The Banks of Doon."

Burns married Jean Armour in 1788 and he died on 7/21/1796, Dumfries, Scotland.
