Cleveland, John

Cleveland, John,

1613–58, English poet and political satirist. He served the royalist cause both as soldier and poet. His best-known work was The Rebel Scot (1644). Though his contemporary fame was great, and his works originally went through 20 editions, he is known today chiefly for the lyrics "Fuscara" and "Mark Antony."


See editions of his poems by J. M. Berdan (1911) and by B. Morris and E. Withington (1967).
