Ben Jonson's "Volpone" is a fine example of Elizabethan theatre and one of the greatest satirical comedies ever written. In this 1606 tale of greed, lust and utter cowardice, Ben Jonson explores the travails of the human soul. He also created some of the most memorable theatre characters with Volpone or Mosca and invented some of the most memorable scenes in theatre: Mosca talking Corbaccio into disinheriting his own son or convincing Corvino to gift his own wife.
"Volpone" is one of the finest plays of the time. Rediscover it in this new edition by Les Éditions de Londres.
