Klappentext: Alongside the cultural brilliance and high achievement of the Regency period, the world of Pride and Prejudice and the Nature poets, of Constable and Nash, there existed also a pulsating urban underworld where crime and vice of every kind flourished. A varied throng of pleasure-seekers and criminals - among them gamblers, pickpockets, brothel-keepers and body snatchers - crowded the streets of London. All indulged themselves with little restraint until the coming of the Metropolitan Police Act in 1829 curbed their more obvious activities. Thieves' Kitchen takes us into this often forgotten world, and draws on a wide range of contemporary sources, including unpublished notebooks, to provide a vivid picture of criminals at work. It was a world of sometimes startling contrasts in which aristocracy, even royalty, rubbed shoulders with all manner of crooks, vice-pedlars and "unfortunates." The exclusive clubs of St. James's where vast fortunes changed hands overnight, and the flash houses and rookeries in the ill-lit streets and alleyways of Whitechapel and St. Giles's where crimes were plotted and concealed; the high-spirited adventures of Tom and Jerry, and the macabre exploits of the resurrection-men; women of pleasure and grand-scale embezzlers - all are part of Donald A. Low's colorful portrait of high life and low, of the criminal and the racy, which was the Regency underworld

Let other poets raise a fracas 'Bout vines, an' wines, an' drucken Bacchus, An' crabbit names an' stories wrack us, An' grate our lug: I sing the juice Scotch bear can mak us, In glass or jug. --from "Scotch Drink" Robert Burns, the son of a tenant farmer in Ayshire, Scotland, endured great hardship before emerging as a poet and songwriter in his native dialect, as well as in English. This "Bard of Scotland" caught the spirit of his country, as these 23 verses and songs so vividly show. Though his works frequently focused on two of his greatest pleasures--women and Scotch--he also found inspiration in local subjects. His "Tam O'Shanter" is one of the finest examples of narrative verse ever written: it vividly evokes the Scottish landscape and weather, the native inns and native folk, all while telling a compelling, almost supernatural story of the drunken Tam. From "The Twa Dogs" to "Death and Doctor Hornbook," this colorful collection is a pure delight
