Richard Barnfield is an important Elizabethan poet whose work continues to gather appreciation from readers and critics alike. He was a brave voice in the English Renaissance who dared to publish poetry about one man's love for another man. In his student days in London, he published pastoral verse. Later his poetry turned didactic, but he never lost his gentle sense of line and image. For an unknown reason, he was disinherited by his father in favor of a younger brother, and Richard Barnfield lies today in an unmarked grave. His poetry continues to delight and amaze readers.
