Charles Webbe ?-c.1678

Virtually nothing is known about the life of Charles Webbe who was active during the reign of Charles II and possibly during the Interregnum. Only one of his poems, Against Indifference, survives, but it is believed that he also wrote lyrics for the great English composer Henry Purcell. The poem is written in iambic pentameter rhyme scheme and attempts to convey the importance of a strong sense of love or disdain as opposed to indifference.
