Refashioning Ben Jonson casts new light on the canonical Renaissance dramatist and contemporary of Shakespeare, Ben Jonson. This collection of essays by both established and up-and-coming scholars of the early modern period adopts a diverse range of approaches in order to revise, review, and reshape readings of Jonson's dramatic writings, both those for the elite space of the Elizabethan, Jacobean, and Caroline courts and those for the public theatres of seventeenth-century London. Plays such as Volpone, Poetaster, Cynthia's Revels, Catiline, and Sejanus are reconsidered in their political and historical contexts; others, such as The Devil is an Ass, Epicoene, and The Staple of News along with Jonson's masques, are subjected to readings derived from materialist, feminist, and queer critical practice, and a lively collection of essays, many of them in dialogue and debate with each other, is the result. Jonson and the Jonsonian canon will seem different and newly exciting to future students of the early modern period as a result.
