Every Man Out of His Humour: Ben Jonson (Revels Plays)

Every Man Out of His Humour: Ben Jonson (Revels Plays) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jonson's Every Man Out of His Humour is a comical satire about envy and aspiration among the ambitious middle classes, who seek happiness in fame and material fortune. This first critical edition of the play conveys early modern obsessions with wealth and self-display through historical contexts. The book offers an intriguing look at the course of urban comedy, and a wealth of information about social relationships and colloquial language at the end of the Elizabethan period.
