Overview

Ben Jonson and the Roman Frame of Mind by Katharine Eisaman Maus

Katharine Maus explores the biographical reasons for Jonson's preference for particular Latin authors; the effects of Roman moral and psychological paradigms on his methods of characterization and generic choices; the connection between his critical theory and artistic practice; and the impact of Roman social theory on his portrayal of communities and on his peculiar relationship with his audiences.
