Ovid. I like not this sudden and general heaviness amongst our godheads; 'tis somewhat ominous. Apollo, command us louder music, and let Mercury and Momus contend to please and revive our senses.


Jonson's (1573?-1637) famous satirical comedy is lovingly produced with full scholarly apparatus, including detailed explanatory notes and an introduction which examines the different strands of the satire and argues for a reassessment of Poetaster as one of the most ideologically interesting of English Renaissance plays.
