GOODWIN, GEORGE (fl. 1620), Latin verse writer, was the author of ‘Melissa religionis pontificæ ejusdemque apotrope; elegiis decem.’ Lond. 1620, 4to, dedicated to Sir Robert Naunton. An English translation, by John Vicars, appeared under the title of ‘Babel's Balme, or the Honeycombe of Rome's Religion, with a neat Draining and Straining out of the Rammish Honey thereof: sung in Tenne most elegant Elegies in Latine by that most worthy Christian Satyrist, Master George Goodwinne, and translated into ten English Satyres by the Muses' most unworthy eccho John Vicars,’ Lond. 1624, 4to. Goodwin was also author of another set of verses, which exist only in the form of a translation by Joshua Sylvester, entitled ‘Automachia, or the Self-conflict of a Christian, from the Latin of Mr. George Goodwin’ (1633?).
