Tam O'Shanter sets off for home

Illustration of the Burns poem 'Tam O'Shanter'.   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.
