Ben Jonson
"I have and do reverence him for the greatness that was only proper to himself, in that he seemed to me ever, by his works, one of the greatest men, and most worthy of admiration that has been in many Ages."Ben Jonson in tribute to Francis Bacon In Ben Jonson's Discoveries (1641) he gives Bacon the highest praise, and describes his writings in these peculiar words: "He who hath filled up all numbers and performed that in our tongue which may be compared or preferred to insolent Greece and haughty Rome that he may be named as the mark and acme of our language." Bacon is here compared to Homer and Virgil in the same words that Jonson used about the author of the Shakespeare Folio in 1623: "Leave thee alone for the comparison
Of all that insolent Greece and haughty Rome
Sent forth.... " "He who hath filled up all numbers," acknowledges Bacon's versification during Elizabethan days such as sonnet, madrigal, blank verse and even cypher numbers. Ben Jonson, the editor of the Shake-speare Folio, is telling posterity in this eulogy from his significantly entitled "Discoveries" that : Francis Bacon is Shakespeare.
(Excerpted from The Knights of the Helmet by Martin Pares) "There was one famous contemporary of Lord Bacon, a great and original writer himself, a man of moods and satire, seldom given to lavish praise of others, who acknowledged Bacon to be his "chief." This man was Benjamin Jonson. If ever there was a man of genius, full of suprises, it was Ben. He combined the strangest mixture of coarseness and delicacy. As a private soldier in the Low Countries he challenged and killed with his own hands a champion from the enemy camp; later he killed a fellow actor in a duel. He drank heavily at times, and it is not impossible that Will Shakspers' decease after that famous "merry meeting" was the end of a similar feud. And yet Ben Jonson could write, not only in Latin. not only ribald plays, but some of the loveliest lyrics such as the extravagant, "Drink to me only with thine eyes."

    Ben Jonson - The Alchemist
    Ben Jonson (1573-1637) was one of the foremost of the Jacobean dramatists. He wrote a number of plays (both comedies and tragedies) and a series of stylised masques for the Court. He had a keen eye for the follies of his contemporaries, and in this play he particularly satirises human gullibility. He displays considerable understanding of alchemy and makes many jokes based on its symbolism (and in two places even refers to Dee and Kelly). He obviously expected the audience for this play to have some knowledge of alchemical ideas. Jonson's The Alchemist written in 1610, thus presents us with a satirical window through which we can see one way in which alchemy was perceived in the opening decade of the 17th century.

    Ben Jonson Unmasked
    A study of how Ben Jonson's plays reveal Jonson's changing attitude to his fellow playwrights, the theatre as a medium, and his own role as a dramatist.
    by Kathleen A. Prendergast
    English Literature Home Page Course Summary English Literature Resources English Literature Essays ... Contact Us
    Abstract: Jonson's presence in his own work can be interpreted as his way of expressing his dissatisfaction with theatre as a medium, and also as a means of imposing a measure of authorial control. His presence in his plays was not static: over the course of his career one can observe an increasingly subtle and less easily distinguishable presence. In this shift, we can see a concurrent change in the author's attitudes about his role as a playwright / poet, theatre and its audience, poetry, and his contemporaries. It is a gradual and subtle move from hubris and idealism toward at least the beginnings of a humility more consistent with his own time, and a grudging acceptance of the limits of the medium in which he worked, and his place within the wider context of the English Renaissance theatre.
    Ben Jonson 1572 - 1637 Introduction
    The demands that Ben Jonson makes upon his audiences, as much as they were resisted in his own time, are often seen as a major strength by modern critics, a characteristic setting him apart from his contemporaries. T. S. Eliot writes, "Jonson behaved as the great creative mind that he was: he created his own world, a world from which his followers, as well as the dramatists who were trying to do something wholly different, are excluded" (78). This expectation of challenge associated with Jonson is reflected in a review by Peter Holland of a modern theatrical production of Jonson's

    17. Ben Jonson (1572-1637)
    Biography of the playwright, plus links to all of his works currently in print.
    Ben Jonson Born in London in 1573, Ben Jonson would be no stranger to tragedy. His Protestant fatherwho had been imprisoned and deprived of his estate during the Catholic reign of Mary Tudorhad died only a month earlier, and his mother, left penniless and with no means of supporting her young son, was forced to marry a bricklayer. But despite these tragic beginnings, it was for his humor that Ben Jonson would be known. At Westminster school, the scholar Camden recognized Jonson's exceptional literary gifts and took the young man under his tutelage. Though Jonson never received a university education, Camden's instruction proved more than adequate. He became one of the most learned men of Elizabethan times and eventually received honorary degrees from both universities. Perhaps in remembrance of his father, Jonson enlisted with the English supporters of the Protestant Hollanders who were defending their religious and political liberties against Catholicism and Spanish rule. The fiery young poet proved to be as formidable with the sword as he was with the pen. In one particular act of bravado, he advanced before the English volunteers, challenged a Spaniard to single combat, slew him, and thenin classic Homeric traditionstripped the corpse of its armor. In 1592, he returned to London and married a woman whom he would later describe as "a shrew, yet honest." In 1596, she gave birth to a son whom Jonson called his "best piece of poetry." He was devestated when the young boy was struck down with the plague at the age of seven.

    Cats there lay divers had been flayed and roasted
    And after mouldy grown, again were toasted;
    Then selling not, a dish was ta'en to mince them,
    But still, it seems, the rankness did convince 'em.

    Yet drowned they not. They had five lives in future. - "On the Famous Voyage" 147-156

Purchase Plays by Ben Jonson Kyd's Spanish Tragedy, very little is known of his career until July 28, 1597, when Henslowe The Isle of Dogs . Probably for his share with Nashe in the writing of this play, Jonson was imprisoned in the Marshalsea until an order was signed on October 3 for his release. In the same year he is thought to have composed The Case Is Altered , a comedy in the manner of Chapman . By September, 1598, he had acquired sufficient reputation to be accounted by Francis Meres one of the best for tragedy, but Meres' basis for such a pronouncement can now be but a subject of conjecture. About the middle of September, however, Jonson's reputation as a writer of comedy was definitely established when Every Man in His Humor was played by the Lord Chamberlain's Company at the Curtain, a performance in which
