Thomas Storer

Thomas Storer

Thomas Storer (c. 1571 - 1604) was an English poet.

Storer was born in London, England around 1571, and in 1587, enrolled into Christchurch, Oxford where he would attain his degree of M.A. in 1594. Toward the latter end of that year, Storer wrote the Life and Death of Cardinal Wolsey — a piece which illustrated his tendency to adopt historical events as the material for his poetry. This particular piece (in conjunction with Cavendish's Life of Woolsey) is claimed to have influenced Shakespeare's composition of the famous play Henry VIII.
