Abstract:

"Jonson, Shakespeare, and Aristotle on Comedy presents an Aristotelian theory of comedy synthesized from recent discoveries in Poetics scholarship and applies it to comparative readings of four disparate comedies by Shakespeare and Ben Jonson. Dr. Jonathan Goossen evaluatates seminal works of early modern English comedy and carefully employs Aristotle's literary theory as theory, not merely a historical influence on or source for these dramatists; and to find remarkable consonance between Shakespeare's and Jonson's comedy by comparing elements of plot and their emotional effect, as described by Aristotle."--Provided by publisher.
