Edward Young (1683 – 1765) was an English poet, best remembered for Night-Thoughts, a series of philosophical writings in blank verse, reflecting his state of mind following several bereavements. It was one of the most popular poems of the century, influencing Goethe and Edmund Burke, among many others, with its notable illustrations by William Blake.
Young also took holy orders, and wrote many fawning letters in search of preferment, attracting accusations of insincerity.
