This second work of Norman Watters continues his study into the life and times of Robert Burns. He writes about the political, religious and social climate in the days of Robert Burns, showing that the harsh reality of the poet's eighteenth-century existence was contrasted sharply with his sensitive and poetic nature. Indeed it was Burns' perceptive and astute nature which led him to write some of the best known poems, which are still in popular use today. The Burns Supper is a tribute to Burns the man and the poet, and is also a remembrance of the things that Burns himself held dear: his beloved Scotland, the companionship of others and the fun involved in an evening full of songs and jest. Norman Watters shows that the Burns Supper is a real and thriving yearly celebration which takes place not only all over Scotland, but by Scottish people all over the world. The reader is instructed on exactly how to perform a Burns Supper: translations of old Scots words, how to bake a haggis and exactly which traditional songs which have been used in Burns Suppers over the centuries. Two of Norman's own Burns Suppers are detailed here, one in Adelaide, Australia and one in his native Bowhill Burns Club in Scotland. The speeches, toasts, songs and jibes give the reader a peep into a real Burns Supper, and also an insight into Norman Watters himself, a true Burns man.
