Author
    (circa 1642-November 19, 1692)
    Born in Stanton Hall, Norfolk, England, United Kingdom
    Wrote the plays ‘The Sullen Lovers’ (1668), 'Epsom Wells’ (1672) and ‘The Squire of Alsatia’ (1677)
    Poet Laureate (1688-92)
    He left Cambridge University without a degree.
    He only became poet laureate because John Dryden was fired for being Catholic.
    Dryden called him ‘The King of Dullness.’
    He may have died by overdosing on opium.
    He wrote a play a year for 14 years.
    He initiated the tradition of having the Poet Laureate write annual odes for New Year’s and the monarch’s birthday.
