Sunday Talk: Robert Burns and the Excise Service


Sunday 25 May


Join Professor Gerard Carruthers FRSE as we look at Burns's career as an Exciseman. What are we to make of the poet's time in this service; did it involve compromises? Did it yield imaginative potential for the writer? How did he relate to his colleagues in Crown service? We attempt to address these questions with Professor Carruthers - Francis Hutcheson Chair of Scottish Literature at Glasgow University and Co-director of the Centre for Robert Burns Studies.
