Everything you need to know about the author Ben Jonson

Ben Jonson was not a product but a noted English playwright, poet and literary critic, famous for his satirical plays like ‘Volpone’ and ‘The Alchemist.’ Widely considered a key figure in Elizabethan literature, Jonson is often compared to his contemporaries such as William Shakespeare and Christopher Marlowe. His works are well-appreciated for their wit, originality and classical elements, making him distinct from other playwrights of his time. However, unlike Shakespeare’s universality, Jonson’s work concentrated on the depiction of contemporary London life. His poetry, on the other hand, marked a significant departure from the ornate style of his era, marking a leaner, less embellished style which was considerably different from other poets of the time. Despite the stark contrasts in their literary styles, both Jonson and Shakespeare hold a significant place in English literature and continue to be widely studied and appreciated.
