    • found: Wikipedia, Feb. 9, 2015 (Elizabeth Cary (née Tanfield), Viscountess Falkland; born1585 in Oxfordshire; died 1639 in London; English poet, translator and dramatist. Precocious and studious, she was known from a young age for her learning and knowledge of languages. Her first play the Tragedy of Mariam, the Fair Queen of Jewry (1613) was written in iambic pentameter with the use of couplets throughout as well as the use of irony. The change in pattern and rhyme scheme show multiple sonnets throughout the play, and the irony is a traditional element of the sonnet. The Tragedy of Mariam was progressive for its time because it was the first English play to be written by a woman) {,_Lady_Falkland}
