Volpone, or "The Fox," is one of Jonson's most popular plays and through the years has been a favorite of both theater-goers and readers. Professor Kernan offers his own interpretation, in a critical introduction that fully exploits the rich imagery, intricate plot development, and skillful delineation of character. Volpone (Italian for "sly fox") is a comedy play by English playwright Ben Jonson first produced in 1605-1606, drawing on elements of city comedy and beast fable. A merciless satire of greed and lust, it remains Jonson's most-performed play, and it is ranked among the finest Jacobean era comedies.
