Task Part Two

This is the moment you have all been waiting for!! An interview with Auld Rabbie Burns!

Hello my name is Ross Martin and I will be your interviewer today so without any delay lets fire straight into the questions.

Question 1:

What was your biggest inspirations when you were starting off as a poet?

Rabbie:

Women were always good. Either that or chocolate.

Question 2:

How do you feel about modern literature compared to those from your golden years?

Rabbie:

Its all rubbish. None of it is from the heart, which as everyone knows, is always present in my poems.

Question 3:

How are you coping with all the advances in technology of this modern era?

Rabbie:

A havent a clue how to use most things, but luckily with me being so infamous, I have people that do it all for me.

Question 4:

Have you had time to visit the Statue to commemmorate your life?

Rabbie:

No. I have been told it is in Dumfries but I havent had time to go and find it with my busy schedule.

Question 5:

How do you feel having two places outside of Scotland named especially after you; Burns, New York and Burns, Oregon?

Rabbie:

I feel very proud and thankful to those places for showing this tribute.

Question 6:

Are you surprised that the cottage your father build with his own hands is still a infamous must see attraction in Scotland?

Question 7:

Yes I am extremely surprised. Mostly that it is still standing and still in its original condition of the traditional style that houses were made.

Question 8:

If there was anything you could have changed about your childhood, what would it be?

Rabbie:

We wouldn't have been raised in poverty and also I wouldn't have agreed to work such hard labour on the farm.


Well thank you very much for agreeing to this interview, I have been fascinated and intrigued by your answers.

Rabbie:

No problem no if you dont mind I am leaving now to write more stories.
