Ben Jonson Revised
The essays here, selected with that in mind, offer detailed readings of all the major plays, Sejanus, Volpone, Epicene, The Alchemist and Bartholomew Fair as well as the poems and later plays only recently recovered as genuinely engaging pieces for the stage. Collectively they demonstrate why interest in Jonson is higher today than at any time since his death."--BOOK JACKET.
