    Ben Jonson
    Ben Jonson was born in London, the son of a clergyman who died before Jonson's birth, and was educated at Westminster School. After working as a bricklayer for his stepfather and serving as a soldier, he became an actor and playwright. In 1599 he was imprisoned along with other actors for his part in a scurrilous play, Isle of Dogs, and later again for killing an actor in a duel. His volatile nature is reflected in his poetry and plays, which are a combination of satirical humour and scholarly classicism. He became a court poet and masque writer to James I in collaboration with Inigo Jones and is best remembered for his comedy plays Volpene The Alchemist , and Bartholemew Fair . He was appointed City Chronologer in 1628, holding the post until his death in 1637. A Farewell to the World

    Jonson, Ben
    His plays and achievement.
    The Alchemist was revived during the 18th century, and in the mid-20th century several came back into favour: Volpone, The Alchemist, and Bartholomew Fair especially have been staged with striking success. Jonson's chief plays are still very good theatre. His insistence on putting classical theory into practice in them has reinforced rather than weakened the effect of his gift of lively dialogue, robust characterization, and intricate, controlled plotting. In each of them he maneuvers a large cast of vital personages, all consistently differentiated from one another. Jonson's plots are skillfully put together; incident develops out of incident in a consistent chain of cause and effect, taking into account the respective natures of the personages involved and proceeding confidently through a twisting, turning action that is full of surprises without relying on coincidence or chance. Sometimes Jonson's comedy derives from the dialogue, especially when it is based on his observation of contemporary tricks of speech. But there are also superbly ludicrous situations, often hardly removed from practical joke. Jonson is renowned for his method of concentrating on a selected side, or on selected sides, of a character, showing how they dominate the personality. This is to some extent a natural outcome of his classical conception of art, but it also stems from his clear, shrewd observation of people. In Jonson's plays both eccentricity and normal behaviour are derived from a dominating characteristic, so that the result is a live, truthfully conceived personage in whom the ruling passion traces itself plainly. The later plays, for example, have characters whose behaviour is dominated by one psychological idiosyncrasy. But Jonson did not deal exclusively in "humours." In some of his plays (notably

    10. Ben Jonson, From The Sad Shepherd: Or, A Tale Of Robin-Hood (1641)
    Short background on Jonson s last play, excerpt, and notes.
    Ben Jonson, from The Sad Shepherd: or, A Tale of Robin-Hood Ben Jonson’s last play, left unfinished at his death in 1637, is a striking attempt to bring to the stage a spirit of rural festivity. The play was conceived in reaction to the prevailing taste at court for a highly stylized form of pastoral, in which the shepherds and shepherdesses were little more than ciphers for courtiers, and the fields merely a convenient setting for love intrigue. The play’s prologue states that Jonson will present ‘such wool, / As from mere English flocks his muse can pull’, and asserts the capacity of native literary traditions to match those of classical times. He targets the Caroline ‘heresy of late let fall; / That mirth by no means fits a pastoral’. In the play itself, Jonson’s use of the Robin Hood legend draws on a tradition of ballad literature and drama, which flourished particularly in the reign of Elizabeth. Yet the underlying sense of nostalgia for a golden past is combined with a contribution to ongoing debates. The play depicts a struggle over values of rural community, in which Robin Hood’s band is threatened by evil figures characterized by their individualism and unneighbourliness. In the following scene (I iv) Robin Hood and his followers confront the attacks on their festivities launched by ‘sour’ proponents of reform. Recommended edition Ben Jonson , ed. C. H. Herford and Percy Simpson (11 vols., Oxford, 1965-70)

    Jonson, Ben,
    byname of BENJAMIN JONSON (b. June 11?, 1572, London, Eng.d. Aug. 6, 1637, London), English Jacobean dramatist, lyric poet, and literary critic. He is generally regarded as the second most important English dramatist, after William Shakespeare, during the reign of James I. Among his major plays are the comedies Every Man in His Humour Volpone The Alchemist (1610), and Bartholomew Fair
    Theatrical career.
    Jonson was born two months after his father died. His stepfather was a bricklayer, but by good fortune the boy was able to attend Westminster School. His formal education, however, ended early, and he at first followed his stepfather's trade, then fought with some success with the English forces in the Netherlands. On returning to England, he became an actor and playwright, experiencing the life of a strolling player. He apparently played the leading role of Hieronimo in Thomas Kyd's The Spanish Tragedy . By 1597 he was writing plays for Philip Henslowe, the leading impresario for the public theatre. With one exception ( The Case Is Altered ), these early plays are known, if at all, only by their titles. Jonson apparently wrote tragedies as well as comedies in these years, but his extant writings include only two tragedies

    Ben Jonson Unmasked
    A study of how Ben Jonson's plays reveal Jonson's changing attitude to his fellow playwrights, the theatre as a medium, and his own role as a dramatist
    by Kathleen A. Prendergast Bookshop English Literature Ben Jonson Renaissance drama ... GCSE Books Abstract: Jonson's presence in his own work can be interpreted as his way of expressing his dissatisfaction with theatre as a medium, and also as a means of imposing a measure of authorial control. His presence in his plays was not static: over the course of his career one can observe an increasingly subtle and less easily distinguishable presence. In this shift, we can see a concurrent change in the author's attitudes about his role as a playwright / poet, theatre and its audience, poetry, and his contemporaries. It is a gradual and subtle move from hubris and idealism toward at least the beginnings of a humility more consistent with his own time, and a grudging acceptance of the limits of the medium in which he worked, and his place within the wider context of the English Renaissance theatre.
    The demands that Ben Jonson makes upon his audiences, as much as they were resisted in his own time, are often seen as a major strength by modern critics, a characteristic setting him apart from his contemporaries. T. S. Eliot writes, "Jonson behaved as the great creative mind that he was: he created his own world, a world from which his followers, as well as the dramatists who were trying to do something wholly different, are excluded" (78). This expectation of challenge associated with Jonson is reflected in a review by Peter Holland of a modern theatrical production of Jonson's

    Kyd's Spanish Tragedy, very little is known of his career until July 28, 1597, when Henslowe The Isle of Dogs . Probably for his share with Nashe in the writing of this play, Jonson was imprisoned in the Marshalsea until an order was signed on October 3 for his release. In the same year he is thought to have composed The Case Is Altered , a comedy in the manner of Chapman . By September, 1598, he had acquired sufficient reputation to be accounted by Francis Meres one of the best for tragedy, but Meres' basis for such a pronouncement can now be but a subject of conjecture. About the middle of September, however, Jonson's reputation as a writer of comedy was definitely established when Every Man in His Humor was played by the Lord Chamberlain's Company at the Curtain, a performance in which Shakespeare acted a part, possibly that of elder Knowell. On September 22, 1598, Jonson killed his fellow-actor, Gabriel Spencer, in a duel. When brought to trial, he confessed and claimed right of clergy; his property was confiscated and his thumb branded. The following year he collaborated with Dekker in two plays now lost, The Page of Plymouth and Robert the Second, King of Scots

    The poet, essayist, and playwright Ben Jonson was born in 1572 in London, England. His father, a minister, died shortly before his birth and his mother remarried a bricklayer. Jonson was raised in Westminster and attended St. Martin's parish school and Westminster School, where he came under the influence of the classical scholar William Camden. He left the Westminster school in 1589, worked briefly in his stepfather's trade as a bricklayer, then served in the military at Flanders, before working as an actor and playwright for Philip Henslowe's theater company. In 1594, Jonson married Anne Lewis and began to work as an actor and playwright. Jonson and Lewis had at least two children, but little else is known of their marriage. In 1598, Jonson wrote what is considered his first great play, Every Man in His Humor . In a 1616 production, William Shakespeare acted in one of the lead roles. Shortly after the play opened, Jonson killed Gabriel Spencer in a duel and was tried for murder. His was released by pleading "benefit of clergy" (i.e., by proving he could read and write in Latin, he was allowed to face a more lenient court). He spent only a few weeks in prison, but shortly after his release he was again arrested for failing to pay an actor. Under King James I, Jonson received royal favor and patronage. Over the next fifteen years many of his most famous satirical plays, including
