For Jean: Poems & Songs by Robert Burns

Edited by Catherine Czerkawska

A New Collection of Robert Burns’ Poems and Songs Written for his Wife, Jean Armour. Jean was a beautiful young woman with the voice of a nightingale and who loved to dance – these being among the qualities that caught the eye of her young suitor, who rapidly fell in love with her. Their extraordinary marriage was passionate, tempestuous, and enduring against all odds, and Burns wrote countless lines of verse for her, or with her in mind. Until now, Jean has been inexplicably neglected by biographers and historians. To accompany the release of Catherine Czerkawska’s new novel about Jean – The Jewel – this volume is annotated with a glossary and notes on each of the poems.
