Tam O'Shanter

This mezzotint print is an illustration of the Burns poem 'Tam O'Shanter'.   Robert Burns wrote the poem Tam O'Shanter as a 'witch story' to accompany the illustration of Alloway Kirk which was to be published by his friend, Captain Francis Grose in his "Antiquities of Scotland". It is both comic and epic, telling the story of Tam's encounter with a coven of witches on his ride home from a night's drinking at the inn.
