Product Overview

1816. Part Five 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. The Devil is an Ass was a comedy of less value and it was the failure of this play that caused Jonson to give over writing for the public stage for a period of nearly ten years. But, the old poet returned to the stage, producing, amongst others, The Staple of News and The New Inn. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
