    I am not sure of some of the references - Diana and Charlie, for instance. But this is a brilliantly written criticism of the monarchy and the government of the day. I love the way he trowels on the compliment over top subtle insults. Burns was so skilled at offering good and valuable critiques of his time. (Report) Reply

    I like the brave way he walked the line. He makes certain everyone understands that he is merely reporting what he said and thought and did in a dream and certainly no one would be charged with treason for what happened in a dream. (Report) Reply

    Yes the dialect of this wonderful poem baffles and confuses me occasionally. I wish for training in the Scotish Gaelic style of middle English. However the melody and songlike beauty of the language fascinates me and sends me into a daydream! A beautiful piece of literature. Paul Amrod (Report) Reply
