Ben Jonson's Antimasques: A History of Growth and Decline

Portada
Ashgate, 1999 M01 1 - 207 páginas
Under the patronage of James I and then Charles I, Ben Jonson wrote no less than 28 court masques. Paying particular attention to the antimasque, Lesley Mickel discusses in detail those court entertainments which contributed significantly to the genre's evolution and development. Her approach is innovative in that she examines these works in relation to Jonson's poetry and dramatic works. This reveals some idea of the way in which Jonson perceived the relationship between satire and panegyric, as well as highlighting the related, if oppositional, views of state power which he expresses in the Roman plays and in the masques.
