Barclay John

Barclay, John, born in 1582, at Pont-a-Mousson, France, where his father, a Scotsman, patronised by Mary, Queen of Scots, held a professorship. He came over to England for ten years, and his poem Satyricon and his romance Argenis attracted some notice. Grotius praised his Latinity. He died prematurely at Rome in 1621.
