The son of a prominent British couple, Thomas Carew grew up in Kent, and was educated at Oxford University. As a young man he got into trouble for not taking school or work very seriously. But Carew found his passion in courtly life, and slowly built a reputation for his love poems, and later for his poems celebrating royal and literary figures. Carew officially joined Charles I’s royal court in 1630.
