Ben Jonson has been inextricably linked to the landscape of the London we still know today, as his plays and poetry here are rigorously investigated and mapped in impressive demonstration. Chalfant's inquiry is both indexical and critical: his opening discussion analyzes the effectiveness of locally setting much of his work in London sites and establishments, while his overall, alphabetically-organized project is to articulate the level of insight Jonson brought to both his characters, themes, and dramas, as he did to the topography of the London his careful plotting made. Complete with maps and black-and-white archival reproductions, this is a rare and essential reference text, and truly one-of-its kind.
