BEN JONSON (1574-1637) This article was originally published in A Short History of the Drama IN the group of playwrights immediately surrounding Shakespeare , who with him were perhaps accustomed to gather in the Mermaid Tavern, were Ben Jonson, Webster Ford Beaumont and Fletcher Chapman , Marston, and Dekker . Among these Jonson was easily the first, both in the quality of his genius and the amount of his work. He was a man of enormous learning, poet laureate, a soldier in Flanders, an actor, and hack writer for Henslowe . He appeared first as a playwright in the late years of the sixteenth century, at the moment when Shakespeare and the romantic comedies were at the height of their popularity. To some extent he was obliged to conform to the prevailing taste; but his natural inclination was toward the classic and regular style rather than toward the romantic; and his "humour" was satirical rather than sentimental. Jonson's plays fall roughly into three groups: the realistic comedies, the tragedies, and the

Ben Jonson
This biography was originally published in Elizabethan and Stuart Plays . Ed. Charles Read Baskerville. New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1934. pp. 827-830. Lord Haddington's Masque or, as it is appropriately named by Gifford, The Hue and Cry after Cupid , was printed, probably in 1608, in an undated quarto, and in the folio of 1616. The classical legend upon which it was founded is as old at least as Moschus, and had been often retold in Italy and in France. None of these versions, however, can be designated as a source for Jonson's masque. The piece occupies an important place in the evolution of the masque, not only because in the rles of Cupid and his twelve boys "most anticly attired" it offers a good example of the antimasque or foil, intended by its grotesqueness and drollery to set off the beauty of the main masque, but because in its brevity, simplicity, and high poetical quality it avoids the excesses which often characterized its successors.

Ben Jonson
'O rare Ben Jonson' Ben Jonson is buried upright in the north aisle of the Nave of Westminster Abbey, London, England. (See map...ref no. 14) He told the Dean: "six feet long by two feet wide is too much for me. Two feet by two is all I want". His name was incorrectly spelled when his gravestone was later renewed. In 1616 he became the first (unofficial) Poet Laureate when he was granted a pension by James I. He was undoubtedly one of the most important of the seventeenth-century poets. His poetry embraced classical ideals but dealt uncompromisingly with the life and characters of James 1's court. He is particularly remembered for his epigrams and epitaphs.

Ben Jonson's Ancestry and Arms
In 1618, when he was about forty-five years old, the English dramatist, poet and scholar Ben Jonson (1572-1637) set out for his ancestral homeland, Scotland.He made the journey entirely by foot and spent more than a year and a half north of the border. Jonson became a burgess of Edinburgh and visited many notable persons. His most famous stay was with the poet William Drummond of Hawthonden. Drummond recorded his discussions with Jonson in his Conversations. It is from Drummond that we know what Jonson said about his paternal ancestry. Jonson told Drummond that his grandfather came from Carlisle, and before that, he thought, from Annandale. If this is the case, the grandfather must have been a Johnstone. Jonson also told Drummond that his arms were "three spindles or rhombi." These arms are often described as "the device of the Johnstones of Annandale" in biographies of Jonson. The undifferenced arms of Johnstone of That Ilk are blazoned in heraldic language as Argent, a saltire Sable, on a chief Gules, three cushions Or

On My First Daughter

To be fair to the author, it must be remembered that his daughter died at the age of six months during a period of human history in which less than 50% of children lived to see their first birthdays. It may be that he had not attached himself to her very much. His son on the other hand, lived up to the day of his seventh year. He might well have been expected to outlive his father at that point, magnifying the loss immensely.

Ben Jonson - The Alchemist
Ben Jonson (1573-1637) was one of the foremost of the Jacobean dramatists. He wrote a number of plays (both comedies and tragedies) and a series of stylised masques for the Court. He had a keen eye for the follies of his contemporaries, and in this play he particularly satirises human gullibility. He displays considerable understanding of alchemy and makes many jokes based on its symbolism (and in two places even refers to Dee and Kelly). He obviously expected the audience for this play to have some knowledge of alchemical ideas. Jonson's The Alchemist written in 1610, thus presents us with a satirical window through which we can see one way in which alchemy was perceived in the opening decade of the 17th century.

site presents an online edition of the works of Ben Jonson (1572-1637), Shakespeare's Clark J. Holloway These texts are in the original spelling of the 1692 edition of Jonson's Works (the first folio edition to be combined in one volume), with the exception of The Case is Altered and Eastward Ho , neither of which appeared in the folios. The Case is Altered is taken from Peter Whalley's edition of 1756 (as reprinted for John Stockdale in 1811), and Eastward Ho is taken from a relatively modern text. All errors are preserved and line breaks are retained (with the exception of the epistles and arguments that have been formatted with justified margins). Broken lines due to insufficient space have been silently repaired, except where the text accommodates them by adding an indented line. Some errors in the original text, and occasional obsolete spellings, are marked by a tiny image of Jonson. Hover your cursor over the image to see an editorial correction or clarification. Although generally printed in two-column pages, the texts are presented here in a single column format. Column breaks are indicated in square brackets. Page breaks are indicated by a light-gray line extending across the page.

Plays and Masques by Ben Jonson
In 1616, Ben Jonson (eight years Shakespeare's junior) published a collection of his works, a move widely ridiculed due to the fact that in Jacobean England, plays had little to no literary value. That same year (the year of Shakespeare's death) he was given a lifetime pension by James I of England, becoming, in essence, the first Poet Laureate. Seven years later, Shakespeare's partners published his works in a single volume collection (generally referred to as the First Folio.) Jonson was a popular poet and playwright, and worked often as an actor and playwright for Shakespeare's company, the Lord Chamberlain's Men (later the King's Men.) He became fond of the emerging theatrical form of the Masque, a courtly drama that employed a great deal of spectacle... closer in heart to opera than a play. With his partnership with the great architecht and designer Inigo Jones, Jonson created many popular masques. The following texts were culled from the University of Michigan the Luminarium , and from Paul J. Dupuy, Jr.'s
