English poet

Joseph Trapp (1679 – 1747) was an English clergyman, academic, poet and pamphleteer.


  • Arms and the man I sing who first from Troy
    Came to the Italian and Lavinian shores,
    Exiled by fate; much tossed on land and sea
    By power divine and cruel Juno's rage;
    Much too in war he suffered, till he reared
    A city and to Latium brought his gods:
    Whence sprung the Latin progeny, the kings
    Of Alba, and the walls of towering Rome.
    • The Æneis of Virgil (1718)
