About this book

Introduction

Jonson is one of the most flamboyantly theatrical of Renaissance dramatists. This study focusses on Jonson's plays in performance - including his Elizabethan comedies, his tragedy Sejanus, and his masques, which throw into relief his better-known works such as Volpone and The Alchemist. Professor Cave has highlighted throughout the dynamic relationship that Jonson established between stage and audience, whom, as his career progressed, he learned to manipulate with dazzling skill.
