Ben Jonson: The Complete Poems (Annotated)
September 10, 2012  /  331 pages  (is this book fiction or nonfiction?)
- Includes an essay by noted scholar Felix E. Schelling placing Jonson’s works within the context of his life and times

Ben Jonson (1572-1637) is one of the greatest writers ever to write in English – some say as great as William Shakespeare. He was Shakespeare’s contemporary, his friend, and his rival. Lovers of Shakespeare will certainly find the same beauty of language and brilliance of insight. But Jonson has a voice that is uniquely his own, and he has been read and admired by generations of readers right up to our present day. While he is now best known for his plays, he was long revered for his achievement as a poet, and seen as the founder of the Cavalier school. His poems are among the great masterpieces of English literature.

Lexicos Publishing is proud to present this authoritative edition of his complete poems, collected for the first time in ebook format. (The other available collections include only his plays.) They have been meticulous edited and formatted for Kindle. The book contains an active table of contents and is fully searchable.
