Random Person of the Day: John Cleveland

John Cleveland

John Cleveland

John Cleveland (June 16, 1613 - April 29, 1658) was an English poet.

The son of an usher in a charity school, Cleveland was born in Loughborough, and educated at Hinckley Grammar School and the University of Cambridge, where he became college tutor and lecturer on rhetoric at St John's College, and was much sought after. A staunch Royalist, he opposed the election of Oliver Cromwell as member for Cambridge in the Long Parliament, and lost his college post as a result in 1645. Joining Charles I, by whom he was welcomed, he was appointed to the office of Judge Advocate at Newark. In 1646, however, he lost this office, and wandered about the country dependent on the bounty of the Royalists. In 1655 he was imprisoned at Yarmouth, but released by Cromwell, to whom he appealed, and went to London, where he lived till his death. His best work is satirical, slightly reminiscent of Hudibras ; his other poems are considered mediocre. The Poems were published in 1656.
