Jonson, Ben, Waith, Eugene M.
"Bartholomew Fair" is the climactic play of Ben Jonson's great comic period. Using the fair as a symbolic representation of religious, social, and political conflicts in Jacobean England, Jonson satirizes Puritans, fortune hunters, country bumpkins, and inept representatives of the justice system, along with sharpsters and con men who inhabit the fair. This edition is the first to use the findings of feminist scholarship in examining the play's concern with forced marriage, pregnancy, sexual commerce, and widowhood.Jonson, Ben is the author of 'Bartholomew Fair', published 1963 under ISBN 9780300010169 and ISBN 0300010168.
