Thomas Tickell (tĬk´əl), 1686–1740, English poet and translator. A contributor of verse to the Spectator, he was a friend of Addison, for whom he wrote a fine elegy (1721). His translation of the first book of the Iliad, appearing simultaneously with Pope's (1715), caused a quarrel between Pope and Addison, who praised Tickell's work.
