Omtale Ben Jonson's Theatrical Republics
Looking in particular at Jonson's Jacobean and Carolean plays, this text explores his engagement with concepts of republicanism. The author investigates notions of community in Jonson's stage worlds, or "theatrical republics", and reveals a Jonson to contrast with the traditional image of the writer as conservative, absolutist, misogynist, and essentially "anti-theatrical". The Jonson presented here is a positive celebrant of the social and political possibilities of theatre.
