Product Description


'This book is a welcome contribution to gender studies.' Parergon 'Smith's book is clear, concise, and well structured...a whole new perspective on his strategy for satisfying his patrons without compromising his integrity.' Janine Gerzanics, The Sixteenth Century Journal 'Smith's study is extremely timely and will serve a variety of purposes. In addition to broadening the scope of current scholarship devoted to Jonson and the women he memorialized, it will also provide those undergraduates quick to condemn Jonson as thoroughly sycophantic with an accessible introduction to the epideictic mode.' Ben Jonson Journal '... well worth reading. It offers careful readings of many of Jonson's poems to women patrons and a well-supported argument that Jonson's treatment of women in his poetry is different in interesting ways from his treatment of men.' The Shakespeare Newsletter

If you are undertaking academic work on Ben Jonson and his contemporaries, this book is an invaluable aid. Well-structured, well-researched and with an extensive bibliography, the book gives an interesting insight into the poetical works of Ben Jonson.

It is written in a very scholarly manner which make it of little interest, I would think, to the casual reader.
