From to the close of the reign of King James, Jonson produced nothing for the stage. This book is concerned only with Ben Jonson’s plays, not his masques, criticism or considerable output of poetry. It makes no sustained attempt to put Jonson’s comedies and tragedies in the context of his other writing, but treats them as freestanding works in their own right, as they are experienced in the theatre.

Jonson became a favorite of James I and wrote many excellent masques for the court. He was the author of two Roman tragedies, Sejanus () and Catiline (). With the unsuccessful production of The Devil Is an Ass in Jonson's good fortune declined rapidly.

His final plays were failures, and with the accession of Charles I in his value at court was less.
