Valium Tate, an English poet, born in Dublin in 1652, died in Southwark, Aug. 12, 1715. He went to London, succeeded Shad well in 1692 as poet laureate, and died in the precincts of the mint, a privileged place for debtors. He was associated with Dryden in the authorship of "Absalom and Achitophel," the second part of which is mostly his composition. He wrote "Memorials for the Learned, collected out of eminent Authors in History" (1686); "Miscellanea Sacra, or Poems on Divine and Moral Subjects" (1698); and "Panacea, a Poem on Tea" (1700). He also produced an alteration of "King Lear" from Shakespeare, which long held the stage to the exclusion of the original. But he is chiefly remembered by his version of the Psalms, made in conjunction with Brady, which is still retained in the " Book of Common Prayer." It was first published under the title of an "Es-sav of a New Version of the Psalms of David, consisting of the first Twentv, by N. Brady and N. Tate " (8vo, 1695). This was succeeded by " The Book of Psalms, a New Version in Metre, fitted to the Tunes used in the Churches, by N. Tate and N Brady" (1696), and a "Supplement of Church Hymns" (1700).
