In Volpone (1605), a crafty rich man attempts to augment his wealth by feigning a mortal illness.

BEN JONSON was born in 1572, the posthumous son of a minister, and thanks to an unknown patron was educated at Westminster School. After this he was for a brief time apprenticed to his stepfather as a bricklayer. Jonson’s great run of comedies consists of Volpone (1606), Epicoene, or the Silent Woman (1609), The Alchemist (1610) and Bartholomew Fair (1614). In addition to his comic writing Jonson also produced two powerful Roman tragedies, Sejanus, his Fall (1603) and Catiline, his Conspiracy (1611). Jonson’s two great comedies, Volpone and The Alchemist, are not examples of a kind of play which is inherently inferior to Shakespearean comedy.

These much-studied and frequently performed comedies by the great Elizabethan playwright satirize the greed, mendacity, gullibility, and pretension that Jonson saw rampant in 17h-century London society. Both plays feature colorful characters, ingenious plotting, biting wit, and sharp insight into human nature.
