Hawes, Stephen

Hawes, Stephen, c.1475-1530, English poet. His best-known works, the two allegories Example of Virtue (1504?) and Pastime of Pleasure (1505?), use typically medieval conventions, but they differ from medieval allegory in their humanist emphasis on learning, fame, and the perfection of life in this world.
Hawes is a small market town in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire, England. Hawes may also refer to:
