Volpone / Edition 2by Ben Jonson
Pub. Date: 04/15/1999
Publisher: Manchester University Press
Bitter, satiric comedy in blank verse is one of the great Elizabethan dramatist's finest plays. The plot concerns a wealthy, lecherous old man who feigns a mortal illness in order to solicit bribes from greedy acquaintances who hope to inherit his fortune. Many complexities of plot and connivance ensue, but in the end, the guilty parties are exposed and punished. Explanatory footnotes.
