Most widely held works by Ben Jonson
Volpone by Ben Jonson( Book )
394 editions published between 1607 and 2015 in 15 languages and held by 5,966 libraries worldwide
"This is the most thoroughly investigated edition of Volpone to date, based on a wider collation of the 1607 quarto and 1616 folio versions than was previously possible. It calls into question several accepted textual conclusions." "The introduction sets Volpone in the context of Jonson's career at the time of writing and introduces new material on its relation to the Reynard beast epic and the commedia dell'arte. Ambiguities in the play are discussed with reference to two Renaissance perversions of the myth of the Golden Age. The modernised text is accompanied by full commentary, notes and illustrations. The appendices include a discussion by John Cutts of the original music, passages translated from the original sources and analogues, and a full record of the play's modern stage history, its many adaptations, and its transformations into opera, musical comedy, film and television."--Jacket

Epicoene; or, The silent woman by Ben Jonson( Book )
173 editions published between 1616 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 2,461 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
