Ben Jonson in Context, Hardback Book

Ben Jonson in Context Hardback

Edited by Julie Sanders

Part of the Literature in Context series


Bringing together a group of established and emergent Jonson scholars, this volume reacts to major advances in thinking about the writer and his canon of works.

The study is divided into two distinct parts: the first considers the Jonsonian career and output from biographical, critical, and performance-based angles; the second looks at cultural and historical contexts building on rich interdisciplinary work.

Social historians work alongside literary critics to provide a diverse and varied account of Jonson.

These are less standard surveys of the field than vibrant interventions into current critical debates.

The short-essay format of the collection seeks less to harmonize and homogenize than to raise awareness of new avenues of research on Jonson, including studies informed by book history, cultural geography, the law and legal discourse, the history of science and interests in material culture.
