1697 ca1743
an English poet. He is best known as the subject of Samuel Johnson's Life of Savage, (originally published anonymously in 1744), on which is based one of the most elaborate of Johnson's Lives of the English Poets. Savage's first certain work was a poem satirizing Bishop Hoadly, entitled The Convocation, or The Battle of Pamphlets (1717), which he afterwards tried to suppress. He adapted from the Spanish a comedy, Love in a Veil (acted 1718, printed 1719), which gained him the friendship of Sir Richard Steele, who became his first patron.
