The Magnetic Lady : Ben Jonson, Paperback / softback Book

The Magnetic Lady : Ben Jonson Paperback / softback

Edited by Peter Happe

Part of the The Revels Plays series

Paperback / softback


This is the new paperback edition of the first fully annotated volume of Ben Jonson's 'The Magnetic Lady' written in 1632.

It contains textual and explanatory notes and the text is modernised for student use.

The introduction places the play in the context of Jonson's later dramatic and poetic works and discusses the political context of the Caroline court.

A performance history of the play and fresh material relating to its seventeenth-century reception are also provided.

This edition by Peter Happe critically reappraises Jonson's much-neglected play and argues for its recognition as a work of real distinction. -- .
