Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0773495339, Hardcover)

A previously unpublished manuscript, this essay was part of the record Gissing compiled while a student at Owens College, Manchester. Written at the age of 15, it reflects an excellent knowledge of Burns' life and work. While it does not reveal anything new, it is of value as an indication of Gissing's mind in youth, and also accurately reflects the Victorian attitude toward Burns. This volume includes a selection of Burns's poems.
