Living Well, Writing Well: London Renaissance Man John Dryden.

Glorious John. During his life John Dryden (1631-1700) had few peers as a well-rounded English man. The major literary influence and figure of his time, Dryden was poet, critic, playwright and leader. Indeed, the period of England's Restoration is also called the Age of Dryden. Samuel Johnson, born a few years after Dryden's death, once called Glorious John's compositions "the effects of a vigorous genius working upon large materials".
