Milieux:

Summing Up: 

Evidently Loveling lived a very licentious lifestyle at Oxford and London, which is reflected in his poetry collection Latin and English Poems. At one point he fled London, perhaps for avoiding imprisonment for debt. He was quite skilled in Latin versification despite his excessive alcohol consumption. DNB states he wrote a creative translation in Imitation of Persius' First Satire (1741) but I can't find it in ESTC.
