Owen Feltham
Owen Feltham (1602 February 23, 1668) was an English writer, author of a book entitled Resolves, Divine, Moral, and Political (circa 1620), containing 146 short essays. It had great popularity in its day. Though sometimes stiff and affected in style, it contains many sound, if not original or brilliant, reflections, and occasional felicities of expression. Feltham was for a time in the household of the Earl of Thomond as chaplain or sec., and published (1652), Brief Character of the Low Countries.
