John Marston

From Academic Kids

John Marston (October 7, 1576 - June 25, 1634) was an English poet, playwright and satirist during the Elizabethan and Jacobean periods.

The rage of William Shakespeare's Hamlet, King Lear, and Timon, as well as the malice of Thersites and Iago, are generally seen as having been foreshadowed in the truculent language of Marston's Scourge of Villainy.
