We like to delve into the life of the poets behind their poetry and we ended up taking an unplanned delight led trip with Robbie Burns this year after Dn came out of his office quoting Man Was Made to Mourn
While Robbie Burns scarcely lived the sort of life we admire - he's an integral part of Scottish history and a poet I was going to have a quick look at while we studied the French Revolution, next year ......
This documentary, put out by the BBC, details all the untamed passions Burns gave free reign to in his life and is a secular documentary... gifts and callings are surely without repentance - recommending previewing before showing to your children. (We skipped some portions )
And a well read play list hosted on youtube.
Wondering how others approach their poetry studies - other than the obvious route of reading the poetry and creating the odd copywork or notebooking page?
