Description
Today he is in Shakespeare's shadow, but for 17th-century readers and audiences, Ben Jonson was the premier poet and dramatist of the age. Finding favor with King James I, Jonson obtained royal patronage, essentially becoming Britain's first poet laureate. Along with verses culled from such plays as Volpone and Mercurie Vindicated, Thom Gunn presents a broad sampling of Jonson's poetry, including "On My First Sonne," "Song (To Celia)," and "A Celebration of Charis." The suite Eupheme is Jonson's lament for his muse, while he pays tribute to his friend and rival in "To the memory of my beloved, the author Mr. William Shakespeare, and what he hath left us."
