The Cultural Memory of Robert Burns in 19th Century America

Library of Congress Presents:

The Cultural Memory of Robert Burns in 19th Century America

In this lecture, Fulbright Scholar and Kluge Fellow Arun Sood discussed the complex, layered and multi-faceted cultural memory of Robert Burns in the United States of America, c. 1800-1900. Though Robert Burns (1759-1796) is most commonly known as Scotland’s “National Poet,” he also made a significant impact in the United States during the late-18th and 19th centuries. From Frederick Douglass to Ralph Waldo Emerson to groups of Southern secessionists, the life and work of Burns was frequently drawn upon and remediated to various ends.
