Ben Jonson online

The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Ben Jonson is now on line. I don’t remember reading Ben Jonson but I might give it a try. The works are available partly on an open-access basis and present texts of all his plays, masques, poems, letters and criticism plus hundreds of supporting documents and musical scores and a bibliography. It only took a team of 30 scholars. What are masques? – a short allegorical dramatic entertainment of the 16th and 17th centuries performed by masked actors.
