L'Estrange, Sir Roger (16161704)

L'Estrange, Sir Roger, a zealous Royalist, born in Norfolk; was for his zeal in the royal cause committed to prison; having escaped, he was allowed to live in retirement under Cromwell, but woke up a vigorous pamphleteer and journalist in the old interest at the Restoration, “wounding his Whig foes very sorely, and making them wince”; he translated Josephus, Cicero's “Offices,” Seneca's “Morals,” the “Colloquies” of Erasmus, and Quevedo's “Visions,” his most popular work (16161704).
