Richard Braithwaite


Richard Braithwaite

Richard Braithwaite or Brathwaite (1588-1673) was an English poet.

He was born near Kendal, and educated at Oxford. He believed to have served with the Royalist army in the Civil War. He was the author of many works of very unequal merit, of which the best known is "Drunken Barnaby's Four Journeys", which records his pilgrimages through England in rhymed Latin (said by Southey to be the best of modern times), and doggerel English verse. "The English Gentleman" (1631) and "English Gentlewoman" are in a much more decorous strain. Other works are "The Golden Fleece" (1611) (poems), "The Poet's Willow", "A Strappado for the Devil" (a satire), and "Art Asleepe, Husband?"
