(1620 ca.-1678 ca.)


Little is known of Richard Flecknoe other than that he travelled in Europe (1640-50) and was accused of being a Jesuit. He was associated with the Duke and Duchess of Newcastle and was acquainted with Andrew Marvell, but is much better known as the object of Dryden's satire in MacFlecknoe (1682).
