It wasn't that Burns was writing in improper English.He was writing proper Scots. (As opposed to improper Scots, which is what Rab C Nesbit speaks - have the Americans been exposed to this yet? I think it might cause culture shock. With subtitles - which I always rely when I'm watching him, which I do at any available opportunity - even more severe culture shock.)
