Name of creator
Edward Burnaby Greene, poet and translator, was the son of Edward Burnaby and Elizabeth Greene Burnaby. On the death of his aunt, 30 December 1740, while he was still an infant, he inherited his grandfather's fortune. An Act of Parliament the following year allowed him to assume the surname of Greene. He was educated at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. His literary attempts, both translations from Greek and Latin poets as well as imitations of Thomas Gray and William Shenstone, are not well regarded. He died on 12 March 1788.
