Ben Jonson's Plays and Masques; Texts of the Plays and Masques, Jonson on His Work, Contemporary Readers on Jonson, Criticismby Ben Jonson, Robert M. Adams (Editor)
This volume presents a new and fresh selection of Ben Jonson's dramatic works. It includes the three greatest and most accessible comedies - 'Volpone' (1606), 'Epicoene' (1609), and 'The Alchemist' (1610) - along with the seldom - reprinted unfinished pastoral comedy 'The Sad Shephard' (1640); in the editor's words, this play 'complements the other three plays, which are all urban in their setting, by displaying a broad, an almost romantic, strain of country feeling.'
