    Author of numerous plays, admired poet, and deviser, with Inigo Jones, of masques for the Stuart court, Ben Jonson is widely regarded as the greatest of Shakespeare's contemporaries. This authoritative, beautifully written and richly humane biography sets his impressive body of work in the context of his ebullient, quarrelsome life, including his friendship with the Gunpowder conspirators, his spells in prison, and his near hanging for killing a fellow actor in a duel.
