Churchyard, Thomas

English writer who won brief fame through his occasional verse, pamphlets on wartime experiences, pageants for Queen Elizabeth I, and historical and antiquarian works-all reflecting aspects of a crowded career. His works have never been completely printed and are of only intermittent quality. Churchyard's earliest work was A Myrrour for Man (about 1552), reflections on the estate of man. His most important poem, The Legend of Shore's Wife, was printed in the 1563 edition of A Mirror for Magistrates, a collection of verse laments by several authors. He is also thought to have authored lyrics in Tottel's Miscellany (1557).
