Abstract

Katherine Philips’s poem ‘To the noble Palaemon, on his incomparable Discourse of Friendship’ responds to Francis Finch’s Friendship (1654). Finch (d. 1660) was an Inner Temple barrister, a poet, and a member of Philips’s coterie, the ‘Society of Friendship.’ Given the coterie name Palaemon by Philips, he was the half-brother of the philosopher Anne Conway (1631-1679) and the elder brother of the physician and ambassador Sir John Finch. Like his siblings, Finch was a royalist in the Civil Wars, and corresponded with the philosopher Henry More (1614-1687), who taught his brother and half-sister, in the 1650s.
