Question:

Where do the Cavalier poets get their name?

Answer ->

"Cavalier" was the name used by Parliamentarians for a Royalist supporter of King Charles I during the English Civil War, in contrast to the puritan "Roundheads." The Cavalier poets, particularly Thomas Carew, Robert Herrick, and Richard Lovelace, favored the "plain style" approach to verse.
