Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“… [a] formidable enterprise … There would have to be either a transformation of our mental world beyond present imagination, or some sensational textual discovery before anyone could think it necessary to edit Jonson again.”
The London Review of Books

"You can turn from Shakespeare to Jonson the way you can from Michelangelo to Titian: it's a totally different imaginative universe but one of great grandeur. The new Cambridge Jonson is a treasure-house. It should be snapped up by every library worthy of the name."
The Weekend Australian

"Finally it can be affirmed, both with approval and with a hint of irony, that in its project of replacing the Oxford Edition the new Cambridge Jonson undoubtedly succeeds."
John Jowett, Cahiers Elisabethains

"The combined forces of thirty leading scholars in drama, poetry, textual criticism and manuscript studies have resulted in the best edition of a Renaissance dramatist in our time. And with a complementary electronic edition in production, three times the size of these seven handsome volumes, Cambridge has done Jonson proud."
Brian Vickers, Times Literary Supplement

"… a cause for celebration …"
Andrew Hadfield, Daily Telegraph
