Brooke, Henry

Irish novelist and dramatist, best known for The Fool of Quality, one of the outstanding English examples of the novel of sensibility-a novel in which the characters demonstrate a heightened emotional response to events around them. After attending Trinity College, Dublin, Brooke went to London in 1724 to study law. There he became friendly with Alexander Pope; he had already met Jonathan Swift in Ireland.
