Massinger, Philip (15831640)

Massinger, Philip, English dramatist; little is known of his personal history except that he studied at Oxford without taking a degree, that he lived in London, and was buried as “a stranger” in St. Saviour's, Southwark; of his 37 plays only 18 remain, and of these the most famous is the comedy entitled “New Way to Pay Old Debts,” the chief character in which is Sir Giles Overreach, and the representation of which still holds its place on the stage (15831640).
