John Taylor (1580-1653), usually referred to as the water poet, was a Gloucester born, self-educated Thames wherryman turned pamphleteer and versifier, who published some 200 works in his lifetime. His output ranges from popular reference books and directories to penny-dreadful-style reportage, political and religious tracts and poems, accounts in verse and prose of madcap journeys, and even a joke book. He was an ebullient character, whose experiences included service in the Elizabethan navy, theatre life in Shakespeare's London, Royalist Oxford in the Civil War, and an old age running a Covent Garden pub during the Commonwealth.
