Robert Burns

  • Robert Burns was born on 25 January 1759 in the village of Alloway, two miles south of Ayr. His parents, Willian Burnes[s] and Agnes Broun, were tenant farmers but they ensured their son received a relatively good education and he began to read avidly. The works of Alexander Pope, Henry Mackenzie and Laurence Sterne fired Burns's poetic impulse and relationships with the opposite sex provided his inspiration. Handsome Nell, for Nellie Kilpatrick, was his first song.

R.Burns House

Hard physical labour on the family farm took its toll on the young Burns, who increasingly turned his attentions towards the passions of poetry, nature, drink and women which would characterise the rest of his life. He fathered twins with eventual wife Jean Armour, but a rift in their relationship nearly led to Burns emigrating to the West Indies with lover Mary Campbell (his Highland Mary).

Mary's sudden death and the sensational success of his first published collection of verse kept him in Scotland. At just 27, Burns had already become famous across the country with poems such as To a Louse, To a Mouse and The Cotter's Saturday Night.

My Heart’s in the Highlands.

  • My heart’s in the Highlands, my heart is not here; My heart’s in the Highlands, a chasing the deer; A chasing the wild deer, and following the roe - My heart’s in the Highlands wherever I go.

My Heart’s in the Highlands.

  • Farewell to the Highlands, farewell to the North, The birthplace of valour, the country of worth: Wherever I wander, wherever I rove, The hills of the Highlands for ever I love.

My favourite Poet

  • The death of his father in 1784 left Burns free to choose his own kind of life, but it also gave him new responsibilities as the head of the family.

After a short illness he died on 21st of July, 1796. Millions of people all over the world highly esteem and love Burns’ poems. S. Marshak, a great soviet poet, brought Burns to Russian people throughout his fine translations.

Burns Night

  • Традиция Burns Suppers была заложена друзьями шотландского барда несколько лет спустя после смерти поэта. Теперь вот уже более 200 лет Burns Suppers являются частью шотландской культуры. Ведь это не только отличный стол, который никогда не обходится без традиционного haggis (нечто вроде большой сосиски, сделанной из ячменя и потрохов в оболочке из овечьего желудка) и славного шотландского виски, но и торжественные речи, интересные тосты, стихи, песни. Кульминацией вечера обычно становится исполнение "Auld Lang Syne", одной из самых известных песен Роберта Бернса.

Gather

  • Участники праздника собираются, обмениваются последними новостями, обсуждают последние издания Бёрнса, изучают коллекцию виски. Председатель общества любителей Роберта Бёрнса и хозяин вечера знакомят гостей, распределяют роли участников литературных чтений.
  • Opening remarks
  • Председатель приветствует всех присутствующих и приглашает за стол. Ужин начинается с молитвы, как правило, - The Selkirk Grace - после которой подается первое.

Parade of the Haggis

  • Как только первая часть трапезы завершена, объявляется начало парада haggis. Вслед за волынщиком, исполняющим "Brose & Butter" или другой подходящий мотив, появляется повар, который несет haggis к столу. Гости, одетые в праздничные шотландские килты, присоединяясь к процессии, проходят через холл (дом или квартиру), прихлопывая в унисон. Возвращаясь в зал, где проходит торжество, повар ставит haggis на специально подготовленный поднос.

Haggies

Address to a Haggis

  • Председатель или специально приглашенный гость читает известное произведение Бернса To A Haggis. При словах "an cut you up wi' ready slight", он разрезает haggis, который затем предлагается всем присутствующим. Подняв бокал виски за haggis, все приступают к ужину. Interval После ужина приходит время перерыва. Традиционные угощения сменяются традиционными виски и тостами, песнями и поэзией.

The Immortal Memory

  • Приглашенный гость произносит речь о шотландском барде (The Immortal Memory speech). Вне зависимости от стиля, настроения или выбранной тематики доклад должен подчеркнуть величие поэта и его значимость для современности. После доклада все пьют стоя за бессмертного Шотландского Барда.

Songs, Music & Readings

  • Все гости получают возможность поделиться с присутствующими любимыми произведениями Бёрнса, а также своими стихами и песнями, интересными историями и анекдотами о поэте, а также современными работами в духе шотландского барда. Каждый должен принять участие в этой части вечера. Поэтому тем, кто заранее не подготовился, председатель предлагает стихи и песни на выбор.

Auld Lang Syne

  • Кульминацией вечера становится совместное исполнение Auld Lang Syne, когда все присутствующие встают в круг, берутся за руки и поют.
  • Closing Remarks from the Chairman
  • Председатель благодарит гостей за присутствие и участие, за хорошую компанию и хорошее настроение.
