Differentiated book- It has a historical context with research of the time-Poems and Songs of Robert Burns by Robert Burns.This book contains a historical context, where past events or the study and narration of these events are examined. The historical context refers to the circumstances and incidents surrounding an event. This context is formed by everything that, in some way, influences the event when it happens. A fact is always tied to its time: that is, to its time. Therefore, when analyzing events that took place tens, hundreds or thousands of years ago, it is essential to know the historical context to understand them. Otherwise, we would be analyzing and judging what happened in a totally different era with a current perspective.Robert Burns (Alloway, Ayrshire, Scotland, January 25, 1759 - Ellisland, near Dumfries, July 21, 1796) is the best-known Scottish-language poet. His poem Auld Lang Syne is traditionally sung in English-speaking countries as a parting hymn. He is considered a pioneer of the romantic movement, and after his death he became a source of inspiration for the founders of liberalism and socialism. It is a cultural icon in Scotland and throughout the Scottish diaspora of the world.
