It provides a clear sense of the shape, scale, and variety of the entire Jonsonian canon, including plays, court masques and entertainments, poems, prose works and letters. The texts, which are edited in modern spelling, appear in chronological sequence. They have been freshly established from a comprehensive survey of manuscripts and printed sources. Each is accompanied by an introduction containing essential information about its date, sources, and interpretation and is supported by detailed on-page commentary and collation. The Edition presents Jonson's texts in a form which combines thoroughness of explanation with readability. It explicates his works fully in the light of modern scholarship, making them accessible to students, scholars, theatrical practitioners, and anyone wishing to explore the work of Shakespeare's great contemporary.
