Song: Eternity of Love Protested by CAREW, Thomas

Thomas Carew (pronounced “Carey”) (1595 – 1640) was one of the Cavalier poets, a group associated with the unfortunate King Charles I, who was a notable connoisseur of poetry. Other poets in this school included Robert Herrick, Richard Lovelace. John Suckling and Ben Jonson. Carew’s verse generally eschews epic and grandiose subjects, and focuses on more intimate and profane matters. In the words of Edmund Gosse: “Carew’s poems, at their best, are brilliant lyrics of the purely sensuous order.” – Summary by Algy Pug
