Mid Week Quote: Ben Jonson

Hello my fellow Book Dragons!

I hope this post finds everyone well and enjoying some good books.

This weeks quote is by Ben Jonson who was a rival playwright of Shakespeare. During their lifetime Jonson and Shakespeare were both popular and there is evidence to support that Jonson’s plays got more people watching than Shakespeares. However, history has favoured Shakespeare and today Jonson’s plays are rarely performed.

 

“Shakespeare is not of an age, but for all time!”

 

Ben Jonson (1623)

 

Happy reading!
