"Scotland's Favourite Son," Robert Burns was a poet and lyricist, widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland. He helped popularize the Scots language, bringing it to a wider audience. Posthumously, Burns' work became a source of inspiration for Scottish liberalism and socialism. His poem, "Auld Lang Syne" is often song on New Year's Eve worldwide.
