About the Author:

John Dryden (1631-1700) was educated at Westminster School and Cambridge University and became the leading literary figure of the Restoration period. Poet, playwright, polemicist and critic, Dryden became Poet Laureate in 1669 and Historiographer Royal in 1670. He concluded his vast output with Fables Ancient and Modern (1700). Charles Tomlinson was born in Stoke-on-Trent in 1927, studied at Queen's College, Cambridge, and taught at the University of Bristol from 1957, where he became professor of English Literature in 1982. His first volume of poems, Relations and Contraries, was published in 1951, and has been followed by numerous works, gathered most recently in New Collected Poems (2009).
