Thomas Carew

$ 2.99

The first of the Cavalier song writers, Thomas Carew became a server at table for King Charles I and was renowned as a “pleasant and facetious wit” among a brilliant circle of friends that included the playwright Ben Jonson. His poems, circulated in manuscript, were amatory lyrics or occasional poems addressed to members of the court, notable for their fluent language and skillful control of mood and imagery. A meticulous workman, his lyrics are among the most complex and thoughtful of any produced by the Cavalier poets. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature’s finest poets, with superior formatting. This volume presents Thomas Carew’s complete works, with related illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
