D'Urfey, Tom (16281723)

D'Urfey, Tom, a facetious poet; author of comedies and songs; a great favourite of Charles II. and his court; of comedies he wrote some 30, which are all now discarded for their licentiousness, and a curious book of sonnets, entitled “Pills to Purge Melancholy”; came to poverty in the end of his days; Addison pled on his behalf, and hoped that “as he had made the world merry, the world would make him easy” (16281723).
