Benjamin Jonson (c. 11 June 1572 – c. 16 August 1637) was an English playwright, poet, actor, and literary critic, whose artistry exerted a lasting impact upon English poetry and stage comedy. He popularised the comedy of humours.

Ben Jonson: Ben Jonson, English Stuart dramatist, lyric poet, and literary critic. Ben Jonson, engraving by Edward Scriven, 19th century. The year 1598 marked an abrupt change in Jonson’s status, when Every Man in His Humour was successfully presented by the Lord Chamberlain’s theatrical company (a legend has it that Shakespeare himself recommended it to them), and his reputation was established.

Ben Jonson is among the best-known writers and theorists of English Renaissance literature, second in reputation only to Shakespeare. A prolific dramatist and a man of letters highly learned in the classics, he profoundly influenced the Augustan age through his emphasis on the precepts of Horace, Aristotle, and other classical Greek and Latin thinkers. He had many friends at court, and James I valued his learning highly. His abilities thus did not go unrecognized, and he was frequently called upon to write his popular, elegant masques, such as The Masque of Blacknesse (1605). Critics note that Jonson's later plays, beginning with The Divell is an Asse in 1616, betray the dramatist's diminishing artistry. These later dramas were dismissed by John Dryden, who undertook the first extensive analysis of Jonson, as mere "dotages.

The term ‘humour’ as used by Ben Jonson, is based on an ancient physiological theory of four fluids found in human body. According to this theory there are four fluids in human body which determine a man’s temperament and mental state. These four humours are: · BLOOD, · PHLEGM, · CHOLER (yellow bile), and, · MELANCHOLY (black bile). A normal man has these four humours in a balanced proportion. But the excess of anyone of these humours makes him eccentric in one way or other

Although John Dryden, according to Samuel Johnson, was the father of English criticism because he "first taught us to determine upon principles the merit of compositions," Ben Jonson, as the editor of this volume writes in his introduction, "was the first to TRY to teach us to determine upon principles the merit of compositions." Because Ben Jonson's criticism is spread all through his writings, hitherto it has been difficult to come at. The present volume collects every critical statement that sheds any light; and Editor Redwine, in his long critical introduction, looks at this body of work in perspective. Part I includes two general treatises on the art of criticism, "Timber, or Discoveries" and "Horace His Art of Poetry," and Part II considers the function of a poet and critic in thirteen selections. Comical satire, comedy, tragedy, and masques are examined in forty-eight selections, and contemporary poets, playwrights, actors, and audiences are the subject of twenty-four pieces.
