Product Overview

1816. Part Seven of Nine. Dramatist, poet, scholar and writer of court masques, Ben Jonson was the leading literary figure during the reign of King James I. Jonson was known as an avid scholar of Latin and Greek, and his mastery of the classics, the high-spirited buoyancy of his plays and the brilliance of his language have earned him a reputation as one of the great playwrights in English literature. Jonson was appointed court poet in 1605, and became a writer of court masques-elaborate spectacles that involved music, dancing, and pageantry. Many of his early masques were created in partnership with architect Inigo Jones, who designed elaborate stage sets for the performances. Among the most attractive of his masques maybe mentioned the Masque of Blackness, the Masque of Beauty, and the Masque of Queens.
