For Jean, Poems, Songs and Letters by Robert Burns, for his wife, Jean Armour

This is my selection of various poems and songs either written for Jean Armour, or with Jean in mind. In addition, you’ll find a fascinating selection of extracts from the poets correspondence about Jean, with explanatory notes where necessary. For anyone who has read The Jewel, and has wondered about the real story behind the novel, this is a must read – an excellent little ‘companion’ volume. It is now available from good bookshops, including Waterstones, or online if you prefer.  If you would like to know more about the background to this volume, and the Jewel, why not watch my recent podcast for the excellent Scots Whay Hae! site ?
