Barclay, Alex. (14751552)

Barclay, Alex., a poet and prose-writer, of Scotch birth; bred a monk in England, which he ceased to be on the dissolution of the monasteries; wrote “The Ship of Fools,” partly a translation and partly an imitation of the German “Narrerschiff” of Brandt. “It has no value,” says Stopford Brooke; “but it was popular because it attacked the follies and questions of the time; and its sole interest to us is in its pictures of familiar manners and popular customs” (14751552).
