This book sets out to explore the reception of Scotland's best-loved writer Robert Burns in Germany, beginning with Burns's contemporaries in a German state and at a time when instant international fame of foreign writers was yet to develop. The author traces Burns's growing popularity and, for instance, demonstrates how a single line from a foreigner's poem could become the motto of a generation of German revolutionists. Many of Burns's well-known poems do not only figure in this first part but are also the subject of specific case studies in the second. Here works such as "Tam O' Shanter" or "A red, red rose" are analysed in translation through the ages. The author's comprehensive work is complemented by a short research update on the reception of Burns.
