Differentiated book- It has a historical context with research of the time-The purpose of realizing this historical context is to approach the understanding of a historical epoch from the elements provided by the text. Hence the importance of placing the document in context. It is necessary to unravel what its author or authors have said, how it has been said, when, why and where, always relating it to its historical moment.Benjamin Jonson (Westminster, c. June 11, 1572-London, August 6, 1637) was an English Renaissance playwright, poet, and actor. His best known works are Volpone in addition to his lyrical poems. Johnson read a lot and had an apparently insatiable appetite for controversy. It had such an influence on the playwrights and poets of the Jacobina and Carolina times that there is no possible parallel.Although he was born in Westminster, London, Johnson claimed that his family came from the Scottish border, which seems to be supported by the fact that his coat of arms contains three spindles or diamonds, something he shares with that of another family on the border, the Johnstones of Annandale. His father died a month before Ben was born, and his mother remarried two years later with a Master Mason. Jonson went to St. Martin's Lane School, and was later sent to Westminster School, where one of his teachers was William Camden.
