About the authors

Alexander Brome (1620-1666) was a Royalist poet who wrote drinking songs and satirical verses against the Rump Parliament in England. Brome was probably an attorney in the Lord Mayor’s Court or the Court of King’s Bench. Izaak Walton wrote an introductory eclogue to Brome’s Songs and Other Poems (1661), a volume of songs, ballads, epistles, elegies, and epitaphs. Brome’s gaiety and wit won him the title of the “English Anacreon” in Edward Phillips’ collection, Theatrum Poetarum (1675). Brome edited and contributed to a translation of Horace (1666) and was the author of a comedy, The Cunning Lovers (1654). He also edited two volumes of plays by Richard Brome (to whom he was not related).
