Dryden, John (1631-1700) London: Printed for Jacob Tonson, Thomas Bennet and Richard Wellington, 1701 First collected edition Poet and playwright John Dryden was the leading English literary figure of the latter half of the seventeenth century. His work as a whole paints a vivid political, religious, and philosophical portrait of his era. Dryden studied works from classical Greece and Rome, Renaissance England, and contemporary France. It was his genius to take elements from each of these and from them produce a new and relevant repertory in British drama.
