Florio, John (15531625)

Florio, John, the translator of Montaigne, born in London, of Italian parents; was a tutor of foreign languages for some years at Oxford, and in 1581 became a member of Magdalen College and teacher of French and Italian; published two works of a miscellaneous character, called “First Fruits” and “Second Fruits,” and an English-Italian dictionary called a “World of Words,” but his fame rests on his translation of Montaigne, which Shakespeare used so freely (15531625).
