Robert Burns (January 25, 1759 – July 21,1796), also known as Rabbie Burns, the Bard of Ayrshire, and the Ploughman Poet, was a Scottish poet and lyricist. He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland, is the best known of the poets who have written in the Scots language, and is considered a pioneer of the Romantic movement. Celebration of his life and work achieved near cult-status during the 19th and 20th centuries, and his influence has long been strong on Scottish literature. As well as creating original compositions, Burns also collected folk songs from across Scotland, often revising or adapting them. His poem (and song) "Auld Lang Syne" is the internationally recognized universal anthem of New Year's Eve celebrations, and "Scots Wha Hae" served for a long time as an unofficial national anthem of the country. Other poems and songs of Burns that remain well known across the world today include "A Red, Red Rose," "A Man's a Man for A' That," "To a Louse," "To a Mouse," "The Battle of Sherramuir," "Tam o' Shanter," and "Ae Fond Kiss." He died of heart disease at the age of 37.
