Brome Richard

Brome, Richard, was originally a servant of Ben Jonson, but became his master's rival, though with some interval, as a comic dramatist. His Northern Lass drew from Jonson commendatory verses, and his fourteen other plays all display originality of plot and character. He was highly appreciated in Charles I.'s reign. He died in 1652.
