"From the accession of James I to 1616, argues Mardock, Jonson (1573-1637) pursued a project that had as much to do with the physical and social spaces of London as with his plays and their collection into his famous Folio. He shows how the playwright exerted much control over the stages and theaters where his plays were performed, and dealt extensively in his plays with how Londoners conceived their city, their experience of drama and its relation to their everyday lives, and how they understood space and the lived environment generally. -- Book News Inc., August 2008
"A thorough and extensive study of Jonson's dramatic career, Mardock's meticulous scholarship on Jonson's royal pageants and plays offers a solid resource to those who are interested in Jonson's theatrical production." -- Renaissance Quarterly
