1617, Dec 91658
an English poet in the seventeenth century. He was a cavalier poet who fought on behalf of the king during the Civil War. His best known works are To Althea, from Prison, and To Lucasta, Going to the Warres. From the time Richard Lovelace started writing while he was a student at Oxford he wrote almost 200 poems. His first work was a drama, The Scholars, never published but performed at college and then in London. In 1640, he wrote a tragedy, The Soldier based on his military experience. When serving in the Bishops' Wars, he wrote the sonnet To Generall Goring, a poem of Bacchanalian celebration rather than a glorification of military action.
