Book Description Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, England, 2012. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. This is one of the last copies of this seven volume set now left in our bookshop! Brand New set still in publisher's undisturbed packaging as published by CUP in 2012. A former bricklayer, soldier, brawler, and convict, Ben Jonson was also one of Elizabethan England's leading literary lights. Arguably the most esteemed playwright of his day (considered by many contemporaries to outrank Shakespeare), he was also a hugely influential poet. Now for the first time since 1952, his complete works are presented in an acclaimed scholarly edition. Twenty years in the making, with contributions from 60 scholars, this seven-volume edition runs to over 5,000 pages and 2.5 million words. It presents, in chronological order, the entirety of Jonson's colossal output including 17 plays, over 35 court masques and hundreds of poems and letters. Highlights include his city comedies, Volpone and The Alchemist, and the political tragedy Catiline His Conspiracy, booed off the stage when first performed, but now considered a neglected masterpiece. There are biting satires like his epigram, 'Of Spies', and moving poems such as the one written on the death of his seven-year-old son. With detailed introductory essays to each volume, full chronologies and notes, and rich illustrations of portraits, maps and set and costume designs, this is a tour-de-force of scholarship and a celebration of a great literary talent. The set of seven volumes includes 135 black and white illustrations and three maps. As with all our sales of books within the UK, we only ever charge a flat standard delivery cost of £3.35.
