GREEN, Joseph, poet, born in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1706; died in London, England, 11 December 1780. He was graduated at Harvard in 1726, and espoused the patriot cause" in 1760 he was one of the fifty-eight Boston memorialists who arrayed themselves against the crown, and in 1764 a member of the committee with Samuel Adams to report instructions to the Boston representatives. He changed his political views, however, on the prospect of the war, and was appointed in 1774, by Governor Thomas Gage, one of the " mandamus" council for remodelling the government of Massachusetts in order to curtail the rights of the colonists. He did not take the oath of office, but signed the loyal address approving Governor Hutchinson's political course, and in 1776 was proscribed and banished. Green was regarded as the wit of his day, and his political lampoons, in which he satirized first one and then the other party, gave him a wide celebrity. His works include " The Wonderful Lament of Old Mr. Tenor," written after the change in currency (Boston, 1744), and " Poems and Satires" (1780).
