Epicoene; or, The silent woman by Ben Jonson( Book )

189 editions published between 1616 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 2,473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Epicene is now one of the most widely studied of Johnson's plays. Brilliantly exploiting the Jacobean convention whereby boys played female roles, it satirises the newly fashionable, and sexually ambiguous world of the West End of London, where courtly wit rubs shoulders with commercial values." "This authoritative new edition is based on a thorough re-examination of the earliest texts. The introduction analyses the play as originally written for the newly formed Children of the Queen's Revels, and performed at the little-known Whitefriars Theatre. Dutton discusses the composition of the play, which took place during a critical period in Jonson's life and career, where he was established as the principal writer of entertainments at the court. His relationships at the time with ambitious with such as John Donne, Sir Edward Herbert and the actor Nathan Field are examined as models for the principal characters."--Jacket
Sejanus by Ben Jonson( Book )

71 editions published between 1605 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 2,104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Emperor Tiberius raises a statue to honour Sejanus, unaware that his right-hand man is ruthlessly working his way to the top destroying everyone in his path. No one can stop him, but his all is inevitable."--Jacket
Eastward ho by George Chapman( Book )

106 editions published between 1605 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,999 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collaboration between Jonson, Chapman and Marston, 'Eastward Ho!' is a masterpiece of city comedy. Unique among the 'coterie' city comedies written for boy players, 'Eastward Ho!' gives all classes a full satiric treatment simultaneously didactic, ironic, and triumphantly comic. 'Eastward Ho!' was performed at the Blackfriars playhouse in 1605. The play may well have been provoked by Dekker and Webster's 'Westward Ho!', produced by Paul's Boys in 1604; 'Eastward Ho!' parodies the earlier play's form
