The Complete Works of Robert Burns, Vol. 4 free pdf Excerpt from The Complete Works of Robert Burns, Vol. 4 Burns, in 1791, had reached the zenith of his powers. The late of Tarn O'Shanter marks it. Dr. Waddell, of this period, most eloquently says: "His climax of ascension was over the Nith at Ellisland, with his countenance westward. Such unprecedented elevation might no doubt have been prolonged, but his approaching removal to Dumfries as an officer of excise determined it ... That he still struggled with uncertain balance to retain it, is true- but adverse influences, both natural and social, were already beginning to drag him down- and occasional dallyings with the foreign English Muse, with exaggerated compliments to inferior rivals on the Mount of Song, whose topmost level never reached his feet, seem to indicate the approaching danger. To Dumfries, however, with darkening or illusive prospects, and dubious patronage- with multitudinous temptations and uncertain foot- with sycophants, and spies, and tale-bearers to government, and to posterity, before him, he must go. The establishment at Ellisland is dissolved- the disposal of stock and of all superfluous gear follows- the removal is accomplished. Farewell, Ellisland romantic, ill-cultivated, abortive farm!" It was at Martinmas (November) 1791 that he removed from Ellisland to Dumfries, and, in September the following year, began his correspondence with George Thomson, from which sprang the finest collection of Songs ever penned by a single mortal. The period covered in this volume is from October 1790 till April 1794- age 32 to 36. G. G. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
