1614 ca1661
an English translator of Virgil. Boys chiefly prided himself on his classical attainments. In 1661 he published two translations from Virgil's Æneid. Boys' second book is called Æneas, his Errours on his Voyage from Troy into Italy; an essay upon the Third Book of Virgil's "Æneis." A translation of the third book of the 'Æneid' in heroic verse occupies fifty-one pages, and is followed by "some few hasty reflections upon the precedent poem." Boys' enthusiasm for Virgil is boundless, but his criticism is rather childish.
