Tourneur, CYRIL, an English dramatist of whose life very little is known, died in Ireland in 1626. He seems to have served for a time as a soldier. He is remembered by two plays somewhat in the manner of Webster, The Atheist's Tragedy, and, The Revenger's Tragedy. In 1872 The Transformed Metamorphosis, a satire in verse by the same writer, was discovered.
