Abstract
The Age of Jonson, the age in which the great dramatist matured and created , covers roughly the last quarter of the 16th century and the first 37 years of the 17 th century. Thus, in a way, Jonson is the connecting link between the glorious age of Queen Elizabeth and the Puritan age which is followed .It was an age of disillusionment ,of increasing gloom and Pessimism, and this melancholy and gloom of the age colours the literature of the Period.”Drama reflects life’’,and in order to appreciate the spirit of Ben Jonson’s plays it is essential to form an idea of his age .He is a classic Scholar, though he went a university, Jonson was well educated. By self- study he had acquired wide and deep Knowledge of classics. All stores of ancient literature were open to him; and he was familiar not only with the perfect productions of the Greek dramatists,but even with the fragments that lay scattered among the works of the grammarians,The Case is Altered and Every Man in His Humour offer ample evidence that Jonson came to playwriting fresh from the study of Plautus and Terence.
