Robert Burns in Global Culture, edited by Murray Pittock, is part of a substantial series of publications and activity that aims to re-establish Burns as a central figure in Romantic studies. It is telling, and appropriate, that the contributors attempt to do so by noting the combination of Burns’s intense feeling for local place with his global reach and global interests.
