Ben Jonson : five plays by Ben Jonson( Book )

5 editions published between 1988 and 1999 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The five plays in this collection represent the complexity of Jonson's art as a playwright. His first important play, 'Every man in his humor' (1598), represents the high point of the 'humours' comedy with which Jonson is always associated. 'Sejanus, acted in 1603, is an experiment in tragedy on classical principles, and a disturbing analysis of political power. 'Volpone' (performed in 1606) and 'The alchemist' (performed in 1610) are Jonson's most distinctive comedies, set among a world of rogues and dissemblers, with a strong moral and satirical intention which exposes trickery and yet seems also to delight in it. The later comedy 'Bartholomew Fair', acted in 1614, is more tolerant of human weakness, and is now perhaps the most appealing of Jonson's plays"--Back cover

This book is intended as a general introduction to literary study, with the single purpose of 'making literature accessible'. It seeks to take up the difficulties most often encountered by the student, and deals with the habits commonly involved in misreading or 'avoiding' the text, and with the usefulness and limitation of such concepts as theme, genre, tone and character study. While separate approahces are offered to poetry, the novel and drama, the discussion works through specific examples and keeps the emphasis on 'how to read' througout
