Poetry Podcast: Robert Burns, ‘To A Mouse’


Happy New Year!  Here is the first in a series of Scottish poetry podcasts from Dr Scott Hames and Professor Kirstie Blair. More episodes will appear on this blog in the next week or so.

These podcasts are informal conversations, not expert scholarship; they record our mutual encounter with the poem ‘on the spot’, rather than presenting a polished or rehearsed analysis. They are intended for senior school pupils and beginning undergraduates, though we hope all readers, students and teachers can find something worthwhile in them. Thanks to all those who offered suggestions as to which poems we should discuss.
