Thomas Warton

Warton, Thomas, the elder, c.1688–1745, English poet, father of Joseph and Thomas Warton. He was professor of poetry at Oxford from 1718 to 1728. His collected poems, edited by Joseph Warton, and published posthumously in 1748, are primitive and biblical in tone; some are runic odes and may have influenced Thomas Gray.
