Edward Fairfax

Fairfax, Edward, 1580?–1635, English translator. His excellent translation of Tasso's Gerusalemme liberta was published in 1600 under the title Godfrey of Buloigne. He also wrote a Discourse on Witchcraft (1621), in which he interpreted the seizures of his two young daughters as the result of witchcraft.
