My interest in Ben Jonson revolves around Shakespeare. They were contemporaries and fellow playwrights. I started simply attempting to build on my woeful knowledge of Shakespeare's works. Now I am attempting to compare and contrast Shakespeare with some of his contemporaries. I feel this is a great place to start with Ben Jonson. But it is not a "light read".
This book has several plays and works of Jonson, along with commentary and criticism. Honestly, some of these essays are beyond me. As a person who is attempting to self educate himself in the field of literature, I feel I sometimes need an instructor when it comes to some of this work. However I learn a little bit with every effort and maybe someday I will actually understand a great deal of this. That is still not the case at this time.
