Jonson's Moral Comedy

Public Deposited

Alan C. Dessens Johnsons Moral Comedy asks the question about the character of Ben Jonsons comedies: were they sentimental or were they didactic and moralistic comedies? Dessens groundbreaking text remains significant for its contribution to early conversations about Jonsonian comedy, as well as its contribution to the practice of ethical criticism of literature. In his close readings of Jonsons plays, he offers a model of engaging in such critical practice.
