as that of Bums' poems.    Everybody understood them, everybody enjoyed them;
all were proud that Scotland should havef
produced a Burns, that he should reflect'
so much and so expressly national renown j
on his country, and that themselves should!
be the sons of such a land, and compatriots
ofsuchaman.
"At the present time of day it would
be almost a futility to analyze... the individual  or  characteristic  merits  of the:
poems of Burns. Every Scotchman is born
to an intuition of them; which is as much
as saying: that whatever is strongest, deepest, broadest and finest, in that remarkable concrete the Scotch national character, finds its euthanasia in these immortal
verses.   The ideal Scotchman is the man
to whom Eurns' poems most come home.
They give all his distinctive faculties and
foibles; cnJy with this modification necessary to tbf excellence of the poetic resull;
that the prerlential and prosaic attributes,
what one might call the minus quantities,
of the Scotch character are left in proportion of less than reality, while the plus
quantities, the  geniality,   fervancy  and
jeven rampaney,   of whatever  kind,   are
thrown in with a prodigal and affectionate\���r
jexubereiice.   But all are there, the less as'.���
well as the more Kindly excesses.    Burns
