Randolph

Randolph, Thomas (1605 ?-34), poet, was born in Northamptonshire, and was a student at Cambridge University, on leaving which he came to London, where he made the acquaintance of Ben Jonson, who esteemed him. His dissipated habits, however, prevented his attaining the position he might have occupied, and led to his premature death. His sometimes excellent Poems, Translations, and Plays appeared in 1634, a second volume being published posthumously.
