Excerpt from Quarles' Emblems

His loyalty, however, in the end, proved stronger than all the temptations of domestic security and wealth.

It was not until the arms of the rebellious Parliament had signally triumphed, first in the North, and subsequently in the West of England, and the cause of the unfortunate Charles had become, in consequence, almost utterly hopeless, that our poet abandoned his peaceful seclusion, and declared for the tottering monarchy. But if he perceived the impending danger at all, he saw it too late. His loyal declaration and efforts were alike unavailing; and although about the last individual of note who threw his talents into the scale of the king, he was among the first of those whose fortunes were completely inundated by the revolutionary tide.

His adhesion to Charles; and the humble services which he rendered with his pen to the cause of that ill-fated monarch, not only brought down upon himself the extremest hatred and vengeance of the dominant power, but like wife cost him all that popularity which he had long previously enjoyed as an author. At the same time that his property was confiscated, his name was proscribed by the Parliament, and almost immediately afterwards he ceased to be, as Phillips expresses it, "the darling of our plebeian judgments."

To this circumstance in particular (namely, his proscription by the victorious party, in consequence of a publication to which we shall presently refer) may be attributed the ungenerous contempt with which he was treated by his literary contemporaries.
